Handmade Accordions

Accordions

Kincora Accordions are all Handmade.  This ensures that each instrument  receives individual attention to detail.  All Kincora Accordions are tuned to the highest  degree of accuracy.    Any tunings can be catered for e.g.   B/C, C/C#, C#/D, D/D#, D/G, D/C#. C/F, G/G#.  Expert advice can be given on all aspects of tuning, tonalities and bass/chord systems.  Kincora accordions can be made using 3 sets of middle (Mezzo) reeds which gives a light sweet sound or with 2 sets of middle (Mezzo) reeds + 1 set of sub octave (Bassi) reeds which gives more bass tone.  Tunings can be carried out  to customers specification and expert advice can be given to all tuning matters.  Generally , the tuning (TONE)  is adjusted to suit each players playing  style and  the  type of music that  He/She  is playing.

We are  delighted  to discuss all matters in relation to tuning, tonalities  and tone.

Reeds

Only Binci Professional Handmade A MANO reeds are used in Kincora Accordions.   Binci reeds are renowned for their stability, response, power and quality of tone.   The Binci Professional is the ultimate handmade reed.   Professional  A MANO  reeds are not to be confused with  Tipo A MANO  (otherwise known as TAM)  reeds which are classed as Grade 2  in order of  reed quality.

Bellows

The Bellows are specifically designed and made to give the Accordion its excellent handling characteristics between treble and bass ends – thus making the instrument less strenuous to play than it’s competitors.  A choice of color is available  with or without a frontal design.
