We are sad to have to say that our Sunningdale shop has been broken into and 40 accordions, our computers and accessories have been stolen.
Likely to have been carried out by an organised gang, they knew what instruments they wanted, taking mainly Italian accordions of high quality from makers, Cooperativa, Excelsior, Paolo Soprani, Scandalli. Etc.
Please see the full list below with links of individual details for each accordion.
We are pleased to say that we are still trading from both the Sunningdale and Rochdale shops, as we still have plenty of accordions in stock, although being stored off our premises until we add further security. So if you are looking to visit us, please contact us before hand so that we may bring to the shop the models of accordions you could be interested in.
Should you be offered any of the accordions listed, or are suspicious of any adverts you may see online etc, please contact our Sunningdale shop on 01344 873717
Please note that due to staff holidays, our Rochdale branch will be closed between the Sunday the 17th of July and Friday the 29th of July. Normal opening hours of 10.00am to 5.00pm Monday to Saturday excluding Tuesdays, will resume from Saturday the 30th of July.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact our Sunningdale shop, who are open seven days a week, with any queries or enquiries you may have. They can be reached by phone on 01344 873717 or via email at email@example.com

This weeks featured accordion is this classic Scandalli Scott Wood Four vintage accordion dating from the 1930’s and built in Italy by the renowned Scandalli factory. This classic instrument features a sought after curved keyboard design, and a three voice tremolo tuning. The instrument is still in full working order which is extremely rare for a pre war accordion of this age. Finished in a very attractive pearl white jewled casework.
We are pleased to have been able to assist our long standing customer and friend George Whitfield in purchasing his dream accordion, a top quality customised version of the legendary Scandalli Super VI. Painstakingly hand crafted in the Italian town of Castalfidardo, the Super VI is widely regarded as being one of the finest accordions ever produced. George is a professional musician who regally travels internationally, and will be officially christening his beautiful new accordion in the first of four shows in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik next week.
