Reply To: Possible New Technque for Tuning


Hi Alan,

Yes, there is a lot to consider when it comes to tuning. Developing this cover-less tuning technique could take lots of experimenting without a good return. I do remember in the Hohner museum PR film, a clip of a manufacturing technician tuning reed plates in an open fixture with air blowing on the reeds. But it was unclear if the reed plates were for melodicas or harmonicas.

I am not too fussy when it comes to tuning yet. Though I just sent another melodica to the Hohner Shop for tuning. Every note was flat and I asked them to tune it up to A = 440 when blowing medium hard. I simple did not want to spend hours tuning this melodica until I have a chance to experiment with one that is beat up and where I have nothing to lose.
