Reply To: Melodica Mouthpieces


How about a short simple mouthpiece similar to this fitting that fits a Yamaha at one end and a Suzuki at the other?

The problem with 3D printing a full mouthpiece, as opposed to an adaptor, is that the material is a bit porous, and not food safe. it would have to be sealed, which probably makes it even more of a health hazard if left in the mouth for too long.

That’s why I’ll be experimenting with 3D printed ceramic, which will be traditionally glazed afterwards. This is food safe, but not as accurate. The solution will probably be a ceramic mouthpiece, made on the smaller side, with a couple of your orthodontic rubber bands to provide the seal!
