Buying a used accordion can be a daunting experience, especially when buying online. Most used accordions in the marketplace are 50+ years old and need a substantial degree of reconditioning. You can leave all the worrying up to us as our Certified Pre-owned Accordions come delivered with all reconditioning services completed and more.
Here are some examples of what petosa’s certification process entails…
