Hohner Melodica Professional 36

 
(1)
 

Hohner is a musical instrument manufacturer with a reputation for innovative design and invention. The company was founded in Germany by Matthias Hohner in 1857, who began making harmonicas with his wife and one other employee. During the 1950s the Hohner company added a newly invented instrument they named ‘melodica’ to their catalogue. The melodica was a success, and was soon copied by several other companies around the world.

The Hohner Melodica Piano 36 is the successor to the Hohner Melodica Professional 36, and it replaced the wooden insides with plastic. The first Hohner 36 melodicas had accordion-style single reed plates.

  1. Melodica-Me

    The Hohner Professional 36 is probably one of the finest melodicas ever made. This melodica is of a far gone era of quality and pride of workmanship. The sound is between an accordion and a high quality harmonica, even the low notes sound as clear as the high ones. This melodica is a bit more heavier than other melodicas probably because of the wooden interior construction. I will go as far as to say that this will become the holy grail of the Hohner melodicas and a great addition to any melodica collection. I love the sound and have started using it after a long absence. rnrnMelodica-Me
