    I just received my Hohner piano 26 which was highly recommended.
    It came with two mouthpieces.
    After trying to clean/ sterilize them by submerging them and bringing
    water, to a boil for a short time and them washing them in soapy water. I can’t get the mouthpieces to fit back on.
    I can’t notice any melted areas.
    Maybe they shrunk.
    Boy do I feel stupid
    I could play the piano26 without the mouthpiece but that is not
    what I wanted
    Any suggestions?

    • Have you tried to put it in the refrigerator to see if it will expand? leave the mouth piece out so that it will not expand and maybe put that in a cup of warm water. My I ask why you boiled it? you could have just soaked it? you may have weaken all the glue that holds the seals and pads.
