My Best seller, This beginner accordions has been viewed by almost 250,000 on You Tube

Musicians will say that these Castagnari accordions are the best off the shelf accordions available. While some makers have a waiting list, With Castagnari the retailer does the wait and has to order in advance by up to 5/6 months


Along with the Garvey AAA, the Tam 1 and Tam 2 have professional reeds, made by the same company as Saltarelle accordions use. These are great Improver accordions and sell worldwide.


I went to The factory in Castelfidardo, Italy in 2004 and had these new version replicas of the old Grey 1948 model Paolo Soprani made and they are a steady seller since. High quality finish and playability. I should have insisted on my name being on them “Garvey Jubilee” but thats another story.


Serenellini have been in Ireland since the early 1990’s and the demand for these accordions is still strong for these accordions especially the 3 stopper accordion.


Beltuna has been popular in the last few years as their Melodeon has been played by popular players like Bobby Gardiner and Emmet Corbett. The 2 row Button accordions are also becoming very popular.

Hohner Accordions

Hohner, The student piano models are the most reliable piano accordions available and the price is very good compared to the Italian so called student models which are mostly very heavy.


Hohnica is one of many names for the Chinese student accordions. Coming out of the same factory is Serenelli, Parrot etc Student accordions are always needed but gradually the prices are getting excessive.

All About Accordions have been supplying quality accordions to traditional Irish Musicians for twenty years [1999] and in that time we have been in the forefront  making players more aware of the quality of reeds available to the professional player.

All my professional accordion reeds have the makers name stamped on them.

I have made the accordion players aware of the different quality reeds available to them, through advertising the different types in each accordion we sell.  20 years ago very few players in Ireland would have heard of the Tipo A Mano reeds for example.  Tam Reeds as we now call them.

Accordion company’s were dropping their standards in order to shift their instruments. And the only way to cut costs is to use cheaper reeds where possible.  Some shops back then were specifying [when ordering accordions] the cheaper reeds in order to offer a better price.

In 2008 I asked the reed makers to supply a sticker to back up my guarantee to my customers.
Because of my influence on the reed makers, today, In every accordion we sell there is a sticker from the reed maker stating the type of reeds in the accordion.
