Reply To: My Hohner HM 36 Issues..

Several people have reported loose keys and uneven spacing between the keys of their Piano 36. I’m not sure about the looseness of keys, but in thinking about how to deal with the problem of the high A, B and C keys sticking together, I discovered this morning that by slipping a tiny screwdriver in between keys and pushing in one direction or the other, I could easily adjust these spaces. It took about two minutes to adjust all narrow and wide gaps and make the whole keyboard even. There are no more problem keys. Although some are easier than others to wiggle back and forth, this doesn’t seem to be a problem. I suspect that this can also be addressed by the same method, but doing so might do more harm than good.

While we’re on the subject of the Piano-36, does anyone know where to obtain a spit vent cap for this melodica or what might replace it?
