I am aware of the fact that the Bandoneon is a very personal item for most of us, which one is reluctant to leave in somebody else’s hands. Therefore, it is self-evident and important for me to discuss all the work that needs to be carried out beforehand with the customer. This means that at any time during the restoration process, you can have the peace of mind/comforting feeling that your instrument will be treated according to your expectations and look forward to an excellent result.
As a basic principle of restoration, the greatest possible extent of conservation of the original substance, but also of the patina is valid. Larger modifications and interventions are therefore to be refused on historical instruments. A consistent restoration will give you the best result while maintaining the certainty of conserving your Bandoneon for future generations.
