Hohner - the original

Herr Krause, 24.11.2012
I ordered the Melodica for my father because Christmas is coming and I remember that he played Melodica with joy. This joy should now be the same. Of course I have tested the instrument myself (I actually play piano, organ, synth, saxophone, chalumeau, bomber, noise, recorder and a few string instruments), so trust me a proper evaluation. :-) So:

The Melodica also speaks lightly and evenly over the entire range, even in low tones. A relatively small amount of air is required, with a pleasantly low blowing pressure. A bit more breathing is needed only if you want to play more than five long tones in the Forte at the same time, but this is completely normal and the melodica can not be loaded. Before there were electric fans for sacral organs, the calculators (bellows) came quickly out of breath in the loud registers with increased wind pressure, even though they did not have to blow! ;-) With an average lung volume the lovely Melodiespiel on the Melodica is just as easy as singing. In any case, you do not have to catch more air than singing. On the contrary. In short, the speech is very good.

The instrument is made of durable plastic, which has a pleasant feel. The key size or the key spacing is suitable for children and adults alike. The problem is only when a paw has like a scoop, but something is always.
The Melodica can be played with the short (bent) mouthpiece or with the included hose. The curved mouthpiece has the advantage that the viewing angle on the keys is better than with straight mouthpieces. The tube can be used when the instrument is on the table or on the knees and you want to play with both hands. A decent case and an understandable instruction complete the positive picture.

Now to the sound:

If the characteristic sound of a Melodica is not familiar, the following music should be heard (Source: Wikipedia):

- UB40 :: "Kingston Town",
- In the play "What are we dreaming of" by Frida Gold, a passage with Melodica is repeated after the refrain,
- Depeche Mode uses a melody in the end passage of the piece "Everything Counts"
- the Canadian group "Walk off the Earth" used a melodica in their 2012 song "Summer Vibe",
- "The Hooters" named themselves after their trademark, the Hohner Melodica,
- The jazz musicians Don Cherry, Monty Alexander and Michail Jefimowitsch Alperin use the melodica quite often and have secured a place in jazz alongside Hermeto Pascoal.

... or imagine a sonic mixture of a harmonica and an accordion, with the tendency to become an accordion due to the similar tone generation.

In summary, this Melodica sounds exactly like a Melodica should sound - which is not surprising, because Hohner invented it and everything else is copies! ;-)

There is nothing to complain about the processing, although I can not because of the fresh acquisition a long-term evaluation is possible. Should contrary to expectations something on the very positive processing impression change, I can still change the evaluation.

Finally, a word about the intonation: The intonation is clean.

Melodica's possibilities of use are surprisingly varied in the music: everything from the musical early childhood through house music to jazz. Here at Thomann you get the original from Hohner for a fair price. I had a lot of fun with the test and seriously wondered if I should add another.

Clear purchase recommendation!
