    I’ve been away for quite a while and am catching up on stuff. Love this recording. Just so cool, thanks Lowboy.

    Thank you Monsters for another great video. I get a kick out of sharing your videos with friends who don’t know much about the melodica–they love your stuff and the melodica. The word’s getting out what a versatile instrument it is.

    Hi, All, Your discussion of Melodica men resonates with me. I’ve been playing melodica @5 years now and have enjoyed exploring classical music for this instrument. I’m not a keyboard player so, especially in the beginning, I played a lot of slow pieces. But I discovered breathing to be an important issue associated with melodica playing. I don’t do circular breathing like some but I have been able to extend phrases with practice. Here’s an acoustic recording I did on a Yamaha P32-D of Spiegel im Spiegel by the Estonian composer Arvo Part originally for violin and piano. The piano part is a purchased backing track from the internet. The photos and video are by my friend Arlin.

    I tried to take the bladder off my Hammond Bass melodica but it looks like the bladder is glued to the body. I assume the bladder has to be removed to get to the reeds to tune them. Has anyone removed the bladder of the Hammond Bass?
