Thanks Daren. As soon as I finalize my initial design, I plan to document my build here on Melodica World. I would love to have your comments, as well as from our other builders here (MM and Tatu come to mind immediately). I think the melodica provides a great foundation for experimentation and look forward to sharing my experiences, knowing that I will learn a lot from everybody’s input.
MM- I would love to see some of your jigs documented here, especially your spring jig. Small springs are not hard to find, but it can get expensive trying a bunch of different spring strengths, since I have to order everything. Would love to see what you came up with. What size wire did you end up using?
