    My Hohner Piano36 sounds good but the keys are very noisy.
    Does anyone have a possible uncomplicated fix for this?


    Hi, Mark – the keys in my German Piano 36 (gold trim) are also noisy, but now that I’ve been in there, I don’t really see any mechanism that can be changed. The key operation method consists of the key, a pivot point, a metal link, a pallet valve (what I’d call it on a reed organ), and a felt pad that covers the opening into the reed compartment.

    James B. in his 36 repair/dismantle thread is removing some of his keys. You might want to follow his thread.

    On a side note, this forum does a great job of getting us to buy up old German Piano 36s. Motivated me.

    Hi Lamar
    Thanks for the info.
    My Hohner 36 has gold trim also.
    At this point I will try to persevere through the noisy keys and
    try to focus on enjoying the Piano 36 as much as I can.
