Was there ever a white Hohner Piano 36? Interesting video catch.

    I was watching this video of Funkadelic.

    At about two minutes in you see keyboard legend Bernie Worrell holding a Piano 36.
    The camera pans right and the fellow in the wolf mask is holding what looks to be a white Piano 36 with the trumpet style mouthpiece.

    This is obviously just miming in the video but I’m wondering about the white melodica? Is it a Piano 36 that’s been painted. Did Hohner ever make other colors than black? Is it another brand all together?

    Interesting observation Kevin!


    Actually the melodica he is holding is a YAMAHA Pianica P-34. It seems he is holding on to the mouth piece because the trumpet mouth piece dose not fits correctly, it probably belongs to the other musician that is holding a Piano 36 (Black) with no mouth piece.
