Anyone recommend a good name in London? I need some minor repairs and tuning.

And my ancient Lachenal Anglo (c 1861) could do with some TLC too

Emilio, of Allodi accordions in Lee High Road, is a gem. A charming man, and excellent at his job.

I do, however, feel slightly guilty about asking him as he has twice as much work as he can cope with. I asked him to tune my old cajun box a couple of years ago and he said there was a two-year waiting list!

Thanks - but that could be a bit longer than I can wait!

He will often do minor repairs on the spot and although he doesn't like melodeons due to the construction he will try to fit in small repairs before large jobs.

Indeed, Manitas.

He's done a few "emergency" (e.g. two days before a gig!) repairs for me before.

It's more likely, in my experience, that 'tuning' really means one or more reeds has metal fatigue and needs replacing. That's something I'm sure Emilio would be happy to do on the spot - it's not a big job (unless there's a lot of them!!).

As everyone else has said, he's the top man! Ask John Kirkpatrick!

I know the original post is a bit old now but I would like to offer my services www.melodeonrepairs.co.uk
I'm in Chelmsford, so not too far away.
