I was talking about the alto, whereas I think you have the soprano Alan? If so, it looks like:
Alto Mylodica = Angel Melodyhorn 37
Soprano Mylodica = Suzuki S-32C
I’m puzzled about the box warping, since there’s nowhere (in the soprano, at least) for moisture to escape from the inner melodica other than back out through the mouthpiece opening, which I guess means it should be stored mouthpiece end down. But if you’re blowing without a mouthpiece, maybe some of the air and moisture is entering the outer chamber, as happens with my Suzuki M-32.
Yes, it is puzzling. I did always use a mouthpiece. I think the moisture must have leaked out of the air chamber. It used to warp after hours of playing, but when left to dry, would return to a position close to where it originally was…
Kevin, I don’t have the Mylodica anymore, so unfortunately won’t be able to make that comparison video… 🙁
