Now Selling Accordion Repair Parts!

While many parts of the music industry have standardized repair parts, the world of accordion remains elusive and continues to be the realm of only the specialists.  Recognizing the need for a database of available functional parts, many of which are hard-to-find, Mantova's Two Street Music is making an effort to present a valuable array of accordion repair parts to other official shops as well as the DIY types.  Please check out the online store often, and search the category "

In addition to providing a place to find parts, Mantova's is a proud dealer for Dino Baffetti, Titano, and PanItalia accordions!

While at this time most of the parts are used, Mantova's are happy to order you new parts as well.
