Reply To: Hohner Melodica, classic versus new

I’m trying to date these things. In the following Apr 26, 1969 ad in Billboard, page 79. An “HM-36 Piano 36” model is identified. Can you tell if that’s actually the Piano 36? It looks like it might be the Solist. I think from some other magazine references that the Piano 36 was in fact introduced in 1969, but when I started comparing your photos I wondered if the Piano 36 is really what’s shown here. The Professional was on the market by 1964. (I’ll report more fully later on my findings.)
