The Accordion Place is an accordion repair shop in Chapel Hill, NC, owned and operated by Keith Sawyer. Most of my customers live in North Carolina, South Carolina, or Virginia, but I also get quite a few repair requests from players up and down the East coast, throughout the Midwest, and even California. I also sell used accordions; these have all been refurbished and maintained. This site describes the accordions I have for sale, and the repair services that I offer.

Every accordion has a story! Please click here to read some of my customer’s stories. Whether you’re thinking of repairing your accordion or just selling it, I’d like to hear your story.

I love repairing accordions! Here’s the story of how I started repairing and why I repair accordions.

Keith repairing an accordion

I recently brought out the accordions below for a customer who was thinking of buying one. She spent over an hour playing them, one by one, to make sure she bought the right one just for her! Unless someone is here to look at an accordion, I keep them in their cases to protect them from dust. I have a dehumidifier in the house because humidity is the bane of accordions!
