Dirk's professional Accordion Tuner v2.3
accordion tuning. accordion tuner
This tuner is developed for tuning of accordions and similar 'free-reed' instruments such as the diatonic harmonica, the concertina, the bandoneón, the melodica and the reed organ. The unique possibilities of this tuner simplify and accelerate the tuning process considerably.
The tuner has a large range from E0 up to C9, a very high accuracy of less than 0.05 Hz (waves of longer than 20 seconds) and can measure to three reeds at the same time. Because of this the tuning of the accordion can be measured without disabling reeds before opening the case. This way it is considerably simpler and quicker to select the reed that deviates and needs attention. The tuner measures beat counts that arise because the reeds sound together and shows these in Cent or Hertz.
AKKOtune Compact tuning table v2.5
AKKOtune is an electrically operated desktop tuning table that electronically controls, measures and displays the air pressure. It is optimized for the use with Dirk's Accordion Tuner Software and supports all its features.
The air pressure can be manually adjusted on the front panel. Instant switching between push and pull is as easy as turning a knob.
The pitch of a free reed depends on the air pressure. If the air pressure goes up, the reed's pitch goes down and vice versa. When tuning reeds, an accurate and constant air pressure is most important; particularly for beating reed sets. Pulling and pushing air pressure have to be the same.
AKKOtune Modular tuning table upgrade
Upgrade your existing tuning table with electronically controlled air pressure.
For tuning sensitive reed instruments such as accordions, bandonions or even mouth organs it is critical to apply consistent but adjustable air pressure. It is difficult to provide this with hand or foot driven bellows.
The AKKOtune modular system can now provide this missing vital capability for your tuning table using modern processor-controlled technology.
The system consists of several modules:
- Pumped air generator with hose connection
- Control unit with colour display
- Blow hole flange for your existing tuning table
- Two inch air hose

The HOHNER Harmonica Tuner is developed by Dirk's Projects in collaboration with HOHNER Musikinstrumente. This tuner enables Harmonica owners to tune their own instrument. The tuning process is easy to learn and is clearly explained in the tutorial video.
The tuner software can tune single reeds, but also double reeds tuned in tremolo. This unique feature enables one to set the right beats easily and accurately. Beats are very hard to tune when tuning both reeds separate from each other. With this tuner both reeds can be measured simultaneously together with the sounding beats, making it very easy to tune the beats.
