It looks like a Hohner 36, not the Piano 36, but bulkier than the Professional or Solist? He is a Czech accordion player.July 6, 2015 at 11:23 pm #5587

Aha! I figured you’d know. I now remember seeing photos and some discussion here. However, I also occasionally see one of these on Latin American sites, in Mexico in particular (Brazil and Spain seem to also be sources for rare old melodicas for whatever reasons). I have not tried to order from these sites. The prices are usually good, but shipping and payment are confusing. Here’s one now that may still be active:
If that’s Mexican Pesos, it’s about $55. When I was in Mexico in February, the exchange rate was about 15 Pesos to one dollar — looks like it’s still good!July 7, 2015 at 2:11 am #5589
I have tried in the past to buy from this site but did not have any luck with the seller responding even when I wrote him in Spanish.July 7, 2015 at 4:05 am #5590
Right. Well, I’ll let you know if I see one someplace else.July 7, 2015 at 4:12 am #5591
Alan, that would greatly appreciated. I will put a add in the trade sell section on here. That’s how I got my Eolina.
