Help May 16, 2016 at 9:57 am #7280 Yannis DimitriadisParticipant Thanx for the input guys Binyomin, i think i should order a full set of reeds. Thanx Melodica-Me, the reed is broken. It was not but the ignorant “technician” broke it totally! It’s not a matter of tuning it, but replacing it…So i will replace the upper plate and leave in place the lower one – the melodica is not out of tune.
