Reply To: Melodica Tubing Upgrades–Photo


A quick update on tubing. I tried the three, new, large-diameter tubes last night at rehearsal and they did not perform well.

The high air flow feels good, however the tubing is too stiff and pulled sideways at my mouth. I have much more flexible tubing and will try that going forward.

The donut-shaped mouthpiece that I thought would be so good turned out to be terrible when played for any length of time. It is too big and seemed to cause me to salivate more than usual. A smaller diameter donut might work.

More to come.
