Reply To: Opening up a Piano 36

Ru Lemer

I nearly got the keys out – tried to unhook the springs from the body of the melodica and then pull the key/spring/damper out diagonally, but it wouldn’t quite make it because the spring got in the way. I’ll try that method again soon. Surely there must be a way to get into the action of the keys? Or is it an unserviceable instrument? Prodz I’ll let you know if I get anywhere

Thanks for the tips Alan, I’m really up for putting time into this instrument to try and pull it out of the abyss. I noticed in another of your posts you said not to wash the Piano 36 in hot water, why is this?

And am I right in saying the Professional 36 is pretty much the same instrument but made of metal? Is it easier to refurbish?
