I am new to the instrument, and am interested mainly because it offers the free-reed sound with the full chromaticity of the piano keyboard. All my other instruments are diatonic, and this will open other keys to me. However, I am obsessed with the Janko conversions I have done; I will try to find a way to send sound links for all to hear, once…[Read more]

Does anyone play the melodica for reasons other than the sound?
I for one am not a great fan of the free reed sound. In particular the accordion or concertina. I don’t care for the melodica models that sound accordion like or some of the two-handed techniques that sound accordion-ish.
Why do I play the melodica then?
I’m old enough to remember…[Read more]
I’m going to resurrect this over a year old thread since this is where the Suzuki bladder was being discussed.
I indeed took a piece of thick duct tape and placed it over the pencil sized hole on the inside of the reed cover of my Suzuki M-37C.
That way air-flow bypassed the bladder but also kept it intact.
I put it away shortly after that(just…[Read more]

I recently got a Hohner piano 26 and 27.
I can’t believe how sweet they sound and the fact that
even chords sound clear on them.
Amazon has the new Suzuki pro37 v3 for $229 which is a lot lower than the $315 I have seen it for on ebay.
Has anyone tried it out?
I spoke to someone from Suzuki usa and it seems that the only difference is…[Read more]
I have the M-37C have owned he Pro 37 v2 and the M-37C. I doubt, based on Suzuki’s history with new models, that the v3 is significantly different from the v2. In my opinion, the M-37C is superior in all respects other than the screw off release valve to the Pro 37 v2. I would be inclined to stick with the M-37C. Better to invest in acquiring a…[Read more]
Got a 1965 silvertone orgamonica today. The 25 key model in pretty fair conition. Not surprisingly the seals are leaky but all reeds are good and I was pleased that the tone is deep
and rich. Don’t expect to perform any repair because of the limited use I

I think the Hohner International 32 was probably manufactured in Brazil.
