Reply To: Vintage Hohner Melodica Professional restoration — need a reed

Alan Brinton

The Professional is tricky to work on for various reasons, Clep, including having the tiny old screws break off. The reeds are usually in good shape. I have one like that. It probably makes more sense to sell it to someone who wants one for parts (though it could be fixed) than to start parting it out. On the other hand, it could be fixed by someone who can deal with the screw situation. If you’re interested, you can find contact information in my profile. The value of a reed one needs is, of course, way out of proportion to the value of a “parts” instrument as a whole.
