Reply To: Chromaric Harp and Melodica Together


Yes, you can change the sound of a melodica significantly in real time, but you must have the right melodica. The only melodica that I know of in the world that projects the sound out of the back of the instrument is the Hohner piano 26/27/32 series of melodicas. These are the melodicas that you can hold/twist/undulate against your body to achieve a wide variety of tones and effects. The effect is much like a harmonica player cupping and uncupping their instrument. I have several recordings that demonstrate this and a new recording coming out soon that will demonstrate an incredibly diverse range of sounds from one instrument. Lowboy
