Handmade in Ennis, County Clare by Martin Connolly

Kincora Accordions are hand–made. This ensures that each instrument receives individual attention to detail. All Kincora accordions are tuned to a very high degree of accuracy. Expert advice can be given on all aspects of tunings, tonalities and bass/ chord system. Kincora accordions use an eight bass/chord system as standard using 2 voiced basses & 3 voiced chords. Bass/chord configurations can be adapted to suit individual requirements. A twelve bass/chord system is optional. Only Binci Professional hand–made reeds are used in Kincora accordions. The Binci Professional is the ultimate hand–made reed and are renowned for their stability, response, power and quality of tone. The extremely flexible bellows are specifically designed and made to give the instrument its excellent handling characteristics between treble & bass ends – thus making the instrument less strenuous to play.

Kincora accordions also offer professional & expert repair tuning service on both piano & button accordions of all makes.
