Uh, oh. “Adult” for the P-37E is being taken by some Japanese bloggers in its other sense.
I’m watching to see when the E is available for shipping to America, on or shortly after the release date of 6 June, I hope. If anyone identifies a source, please let us know!
These guys from Sabah in Malaysia play Chinese songs in a metal style. “One Night in Beijing” is a Chinese opera song. One day I played melodica with them – just using a pentatonic scale. 9 years ago I wasn’t thinking about the melodica as a wind instrument, just a portable keyboard. Anyway, it’s fun. I hope you like it

I am always trying to apply the melodica to various genres for fun. I am impressed by how many genres I can fit my Hohner melodicas into. But that is for casual fun. My real interest is playing the blues.
For blues music, I believe my Hohners are the best for me. Other melodicas can work in the blues of course, but for me, the darker…[Read more]

Thanks! Yes: I was trying to hurry back here and post again to say that I have read all the Pro 36 posts and had seen your recommendation about the soapy water, so you wouldn’t have to repeat yourself again :-), but you beat me to it.
I’m going to see if I can come up with a smoke method just because it seems a little easier… hopefully there is…[Read more]

Hello Clep, what I have done is the soap and water method. With an eye dropper and some liquid soap and water, place a few drops, enough to wet the pads fully, blow with out pressing a key and see if you can see any bubbles around the area you wet with soapy water. If so mark and repeat until you identify all the leaks in the pad. You can do the…[Read more]
