This is very interesting Alan!
So it seems that Song Lin decided to model their melodica directly on the Yamaha, but using the cheapest possible materials. A bit like what I’m doing, but in reverse 🙂
I like the black colour of the main body, rather than white polystyrene. I’ve only seen this once before, and it was on the Schoenhut – another very cheap melodica.
I really do wonder what those Yamaha reeds are made from…
