Reply To: Opening up a Piano 36

Alan Brinton

The Professional 36 is a very different instrument, not at all comparable to the Piano 36. The Professional is also much rarer, typically much more expensive, and much more likely than a Piano 36 to need to be repaired or refurbished.

Most melodicas can be submerged in water (cold or warm, I would recommend, not hot). I personally would try it on a Piano 36 if it had a really bad smell or was sticky, but I haven’t done it and am less confident about it than with most other melodicas, so I’m careful not to recommend it on a Piano 36 (and definitely not on a Professional 36). But you’re probably in experimental mode on this Piano 36, so it might be worth a shot. Let us know how this goes.
