Reply To: Hohner Melodica Professional restoration


Just got a piece of 1mm cedar veneer from a brilliant guitar luthier friend; he’s a luthier, so of course it’s a gorgeous piece of wood, precisely milled within 1 or 2 thousandths of an inch. 🙂

It seems a little foolish to leave it as raw wood, given the humid air that will be flowing through the reed chambers, so my thought was to paint it with vapor barrier primer. I can’t imagine this will have much (if any) impact on the sound of the melodica, but if anyone disagrees, let me know!
