I don’t think that’s right, Melodica-Me. I have read that about it, but I think it was from confusion of it with those similar looking European models I posted about recently. Very small keys, yes. If it truly is blow-suck, then someone among us should buy it.
It’s a cool looking instrument, but it’s clearly fashioned to be played on a table with the hose, which wouldn’t work for me. But if anyone is interested, it’s abut $26 U.S. and would be about $40 in shipping. That’s with the opening bid, but there’s not much competitive bidding on this site. And it projects, whatever that means, so maybe somebody could do a light show with it. For me it would just be a collector’s item, of which I already have quite enough!
Interesting discovery, Anton. I thought the Russians would be too busy working on the 2020 U.S. presidential election. Music teachers must be making use of the OHP in classrooms in Russia and India. Which means they’re teaching melodica to school children. The future is bright!
