Does anyone know who might offer specialist advice on accordion tuning? I have spoken to one or two accordionists who have had their boxes retuned to a dryer sound for Irish or Scottish playing and read all the usual web ifo but need some exact specifications for my local repairer who is not a folky and not familiar with these tunings. Thanks

I'm in the Midlands but the guy who does my repairs (and is very good) will tune if I can get him the specs. Can you let me have contact details for your guy?
Many thanks

Try contacting Theo Gibb. He is based in Gateshead and repairs free reed instruments. He is a folky himself and plays melodeon. His wife plays piano accordion, so he will know what you want.

Theo's Website is here

This info (details on the various types of 'wetness' tunings) should be in the Accordion Permathread - a Joeclone will link it in sooner or later, I pray...

Thanks to those who have submitted details of tuners.
