Fantastic! Great photos. Welcome to SmugMug.
So there’s absolutely no question about it now. The Professional 36 was in production in 1962. It’s amazing, really. It’s such a big jump up from the other Hohner models out by then. Thanks, Melodica-Me. It’s also great to see more of the Solist.
Yes, the clean reeds jump right out. I have old Suzukis that seem to have been barely played, but there’s always more discoloring than that at the mouth end.
