Reviews and Problems with Hohner Student 32 Melodica
Showing 1-10 of 46
Very fun toy, limited accompaniment value
2 February 2012
Summary: I got my own melodica a little over a year ago, and got my sister one for Christmas. We both enjoy them immensely, but there are some undesirable attributes. For starters, as some others have mentioned, it does play out of tune. Pretty badly, on some notes, particularly in the higher register.
Summary: I used to play the piano but I have no room now for a full size piano. Plus, I was always better with my right hand. This is the perfect instrument for me! I only play with my right hand and the melodica takes up so little space.
Summary: After reading more thoroughly through the reviews I can see that I am not the only one with this problem. In fact, I suspect most of these melodicas come out of tune and the people who are true beginners to musical instruments (it's a student melodica, after all) haven't yet developed the sensitive...
Summary: Before I purchased this, I read some negative reviews about the product being out of tune when it arrived. I have to say, my melodica arrived perfectly in tune and has stayed that way as long as I've had it. I am very pleased with the quality of this melodica.
Summary: The Melodica was the coolest instrument, most interesting instrument, and probably the best instrument I've ever owned. As soon as you get it, you'll be playing the Melodica all day long, LITERALLY.I couldn't stop playing when I first got it.
Summary: It's a wonderful reliable instrument that you can tote around and have some fun with. It can be useful for learning intervals and chords. I recently took it out for my daughter who is studying violin, and when I played it, she screwed her face up and said, "it's a bit sharp - just a bit".
Summary: I just received mine following a Gold Box deal (kudos, Amamzon, you got me to buy something I wasn't looking for). I really like the sound. Better than a low priced harmonica, and I've never been able to figure out how to play the harmonica at that. Keys work well.
Summary: I bought the Hohner Melodica, which arrived on time. I like the set up of this instruent because it has a tube for you to blow in, which allows you to turn it so that the keys look like a piano, instead of playing it while looking at the keys sideways. I am having fun with this.
Summary: I was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this instrument! It plays well, it is quite fun, and it turns heads anywhere it goes. Its rather easy to play, just breathe and move your fingers! Just have to get used to a keyboard to create actual music rather than just a cacophony of noises.
