Hi Everyone,

Well, not exactly.  My personal accordion is not for sale, but I am happy to tell you that I now have some terrific new button accordions from Strasser, Zupan, Meloija, and more.

We’ve been selling accordions at Walter Ostanek’s Music Centre for years.  As many of you may know, my son Richard, manages the store these days.  But when it comes to accordions, well, that’s what I know best, and truly love.

I can still remember my very first button accordion as a young boy.  What a thrill it was.  Maybe that’s why I enjoy helping others select just the right button box, or piano accordion.

Although most of my music is played on the piano accordion these days, my roots go back to the button accordion, and I still love the sound.  I always try to include at least one button box polka on each of my albums.

Please check out this cute little video that shows how Strasser button accordions are made.
Just click on: Accordions For Sale.

In the meantime, if you’re looking for a new accordion, or just want some advice, I welcome you to send me an email at:

Till next time,
Keep smiling!
