Hohner Performer 37

 
(3)

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.

    I was thrilled to see but disappointed when I played this melodica.rnIt's not up to the standards that Hohner had previously set.rnThe keys were uneven, I have one that still sticks despite my best efforts.rnThe sound is raw and unpleasant.rnI must mention too that when I got it new the chemical smell was so strong I had to keep the box and case outside under the carport.

    I quite enjoy my Performer 37. The keys have a great action, and play cleanly. A little bit of clicking, but I think that's unavoidable.rnrnFor the price, I think it's a pretty good instrument and the one I play the most.

    Compared to my Hohner Piano 36, the Performer 37 is a bit lighter from being all plastic but it came very much in tune (better than my Piano 36) and sounds pretty decent. It's not as mellow as the Piano 36 which I suspect has more to do with the case than the reeds but overall a nice tone which is perfect for what I'm using it for. I would recommend this, especially since it's easy to find and quite inexpensive.
