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.

    These have been around a while but no longer being made.It has a straight mouthpiece and a hose that is much stiffer material than other brands it keeps its shape and can be awkward to position, There is no separate mouthpiece at the end of the tube. It's well constructed but a drawback is that the keys are short and stubby and clack loudly when you let off. This partly due to the inner workings. There are T-shaped pallet valves that connect to the keys and slam shut when you release. (NOTE: though they were being made at the same time as the piano 36 this melodica and the 32 note version are worlds different from the piano 36 in both tone and design)rnAnother issue is the clear vinyl that acts as a stopper for the spit release will yellow and eventually dry out and break or crumble over time.rnDespite it's poor keyboard this is one of the warmest sounding melodicas I know of. A full-bodied and rich tone. Deep, dark but not clouded, never shrill, never honking. To me it's what you think of when you think of the tone of a melodica.
