Reply To: Does anyone know of a melodica technician / tuner

Alan Brinton

There has been quite a bit of earlier discussion here that’s worth reading, Tom, including some about whether to tune to A=440 or higher. I started out tuning to 443 because that seemed closer to how they came from the factory, but then my mind was changed in discussion, and now I aim at 440 or 441. Reeds can snap pretty easily where they are connected at the base, but this has only happened to me once with a reed I kept fiddling with — I think it was already gone bad.
