If you have any info how to reasemble keys, that will be great. in link above I was try to open my piano 36, but with no sucess. It’s easy to take down case but how to get to the keys.
At some point I give up, mostly because I was scared to not damage melodica.November 7, 2015 at 9:19 pm #6220
hey, its business after all :))))September 4, 2014 at 9:20 am #3065
just press problematic reeds to leesen the gap and look what happened. Do not be afraid, it will not break. just dont press too much down…September 1, 2014 at 10:14 am #3052
During tuning you probably pres one of the reeds to much down or you lift reed to much up. Maby the problem is in the gap between reed and reed plate. Try to adjust problematic reed by little bit and see what happens.
But why tuning that small amount of out of tune. I noticed that is better for notes go little bit higher (like your 443Hz). Because when you blow harder note (tuning) tend to go little bit lower.
P.S. sorry for bad english 🙂August 31, 2014 at 10:30 pm #3050
I’ve already noticed that by accident while I lay on the couch and play. for best muffle result put a small pillow between melodica and chest 🙂
great site for melodica owners and lovers!August 31, 2014 at 10:13 pm #3048
alredy cleaned reads with alcohol, but some of rust wont go down. casing of this melodica is the same like piano27, only one key is missing (first key- see the picture above) and reeds is the same material, but probably because of the rust sound is very rough and sharp compared to sweet sound of hohner piano27. and i have to adjust last two reeds because i have to blow very hard to make a sound…
it’s used one and cost me only 12 dollars 🙂 so this is my experiment melodica 🙂
P.S. some keys was whole note lower after cleaning so tuning was necessary. 🙂August 31, 2014 at 9:48 pm #3045
I got lucky with Bohema because i bought that melodica for 30 dollars. it’s used one, but in very good condition. it is build like a tank. “front” side have little dent on the case, but that dosent affect the sound which is more like accordion than melodica.
never have the oportunity to try any model of hohner 36 melodica, but i think that bohema sound is very similar to them
only find this video on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeFVfKbBn_Y (song translation “teacher tango” 🙂 )
I think that Bohema is not in production any more.August 31, 2014 at 7:39 am #3041
amen to that!August 28, 2014 at 9:36 am #3038
nice info, but according to murphy law you always end by paying higest price for instrument. just after you purchace instrument you find out that there is cheaper one 🙂August 25, 2014 at 9:46 pm #3023
try to practice on piano (or synth keyboard) with both hand. melodica is easy instrument to play, but general knowledge on piano (or synth) is esential.
usualy melodica is an instrument that you play by ear, and for that you have to know how to use a keyboard without “thinking”.
practice, practice, practice, practice, practice…
P.S. welcome to melodicaworld!August 25, 2014 at 9:31 pm #3022
