Reply To: single reed plates for melodica


The photo of this wooden version was on facebook, posted in 2011. I’ve heard this project has been going on from 2010 to 2015. The wooden version may look beautiful, but the later version with metal sides and bottom is better water/moisture resistant. The Original French accordinas also had metal sides and Bottoms. Only the inside reedblock is wood.

By the way, found a first video of the latest of this Finnish prototype. It starts at 1’10 :

Tatu Salmela ja moottorisahahurmaajat

Short fragment, but it’s a start. Who can find another video with full review of this instrument?
