    This is my first post here. My main instrument is the saxophone and I had the desire to add another wind instrument. Saxophonists are usually expected to double on flute or clarinet, but I chose the chromatic harmonica and melodica. I’m very happy with my decision!

    Now to the topic of this post:

    Water on the reeds may cause problems, so I would like to know if one of those nano coating products could make the reeds more water repellent without affecting tone and intonation. Has anyone tried this? If not, then I have a cheap melodica that I could use as a guinea pig.


    Hello Carola, I don’t think that a nano coating would help since the issue is the accumilation of moisture that affects the performance. blowing the moisture out frequently would help. There has been some other suggestions like an air pump that pulls the moisture out.
    here is the link.…
    scroll down to “How do I dry out my melodica?”
    Standing your melodica upright and letting the moisture accumalate then releasing the moisture while in the upright position works too.


    Hello Melodica-Me,

    thanks for your advice. Since nobody has reported any bad experiences, I’ll just try it out of curiousity and see what happens (without having too high expectations).
