    Hi from Gianandrea, Italy; I am a harmonica player (I play chord, bass, diatonic and chromatic harmonicas) that recently has bought a vintage Borel’s Clavietta; this instrument is cool bit when I tried to play it I felt a heavy air leakage that prevented the clavietta to be played; so after dismantelling it, I discovered the reason; virtually all the plastic rings were dry, some had broken or missed. I have experience with harmonica reply but I miss any experience with melodicas; I know that there are many experts in this forum; can somebody give me some tips; for instance, where can I find those plastic rings; in the case that nobody produce or sell the proper substitutes, what can I use as alternatives; any help is welcome.

    Hi, From Gianandrea. Our member Melodica-Me has addressed this issue in more than one thread. A search in the Forums with the word “washer” will turn up more, but here, for example:

    Hello Gianandrea, how many washers are broken? I may have a few rubber washers you can have that I normally use. Message me your address on the Monsters of Melodica Facebook page and I will send a few out.
