Accordions has been a bit of a resurgence in popularity lately largely thanks to some bands incorporating folk instruments into their music. Some of us may not be able to find an old accordion in grandma’s attic.
A new entry-level accordion will cost you between $500 and $600. Prices can fluctuate depending on factors such as brand, number of buttons, and finishes. Professional models may cost upwards of $15,000.
These are the three most popular models, and they can all be purchased through online shops. However, I strongly advocate that you try before buying high-end items like musical instruments. Although Hohner is a popular model and has the highest marks, it might not be for everyone.
When putting together a price list, it can be difficult to decide on a style and size for the button accordion. The price of buttons can vary greatly in different sizes, so this chart will focus on the most affordable models.
They are all similar in sound, but have different button layouts. A player wouldn’t be able to pick up a German model to play if he didn’t know how to play an English concertina.

Before you can even think about the price, you need to be clear on what you are looking for. Consider the following and do your research:
- What type of music do you want to listen?
- Accordion and Concertina
- Piano Style or Button Style
- Chromatic or Diatonic
- Bisonoric and Unisonoric
Once you have decided on the items, start looking for brands that offer to buy accordions that match your needs.
