Very portable and lightweight. In tune with other instruments. Low cost! I haven't had any other similar products but I am impressed with the Hohner.

I agree with what Laura said in 2013, the photo does not do the melodica justice. The color is a deep maroon. The Hohner logo and lettering are gray, and it doesn't scream "student quality." The notes do run a bit on the sharp side, about 5 to 10% on my tuner. They are consistent and it is in tune with itself. If you are worried about this, you can always tune stringed instruments a bit sharp to match. I think you'd struggle to hear. I'm very pleased with this Hohner. It is better than I expected and good value.

pictures do not do the product justice. I thought it was brilliant. very well packed to keep it safe, if a bit excessive.

I ordered my item around midday - a UK address - and it arrived the following morning! I think that must be the quickest service ever. All that and the price was good too.

Great instrument for the price 19 Dec 2009
By Bookenator - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
In this price range you aren't going to find a better melodica. Great instrument to learn on or to have around to add spice to your home recordings. It doesn't come with any instructions, but all you do is insert one of the two included mouth pieces. One is short, one is long. With the short one you hold the instrument with one hand (slide your hand under the strap) and play with the other. With the long bendy straw mouthpiece you can set the melodica on a table and play it like a small keyboard. Good sound and easy to play. Have fun.

Great value for price! 12 Feb 2010
By D. C. Froburg - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
So the 32-key Hohner Student Melodica, is not the best or most expensive melodica out there. However, for the price I paid, I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of construction. The instrument came in perfect pitch, contrary to a lot of other reviews saying that the C was sharp.

Out of the box I was playing along with the band, no problems, except my limited lung capacity! (Chords are tough to sustain unless you are in great aerobic shape.) Also, mine came with a carrying case, which is awesome, it holds the hose attachment nicely, and gives the protection you would expect from a soft gig bag.

So you could spend upwards of $500 for a real professional quality melodica if you are seriously into it, or play for a living, but if you are just curious, or want to add a nice sound to your repertoire, get the student version, its a great combination of quality and price.

Good instrument, except for intonation. 24 Feb 2011
By some guy - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was pleased with the timbre of the instrument and the action of the keys, but about 1/3 of the keys were noticeably out of tune. (I used a chromatic violin tuner to test the pitch of every reed) This wouldn't have been an issue if the instrument was in decent relative tune with itself, but the some notes were right on the correct pitch while others differed as much as 30 cents from the correct pitch. That being said, it isn't impossible to tune melodicas, just very laborious. Everything else about the instrument, case, and accessories was satisfactory.

Some of the best money I've ever spent of music gear! 10 Jan 2013
By Travis Kilgore - Published on Amazon.com
The short review:

I recommend this melodica without reservation. The one I bought is absolutely fantastic.

The long review:

I have been playing the acoustic guitar for over twenty years, and have long wanted to be able to get my sixteen year old daughter involved in playing music with me. She has played the trumpet for four years and also enjoys playing melodies and simple harmonies/accompaniment on her electric keyboard, but neither instrument is really practical for the kind of music I play (due to volume or power requirement/portability issues).

Having grown up in the 80's I remembered the video "And We Danced" by The Hooters, which featured a small, breath-powered keyboard. A quick Google search informed me that this instrument is known (among other things) as a melodica, and given my daughter's love of her wind instrument and her keyboard I thought that this might be a good choice for her. After looking at the melodicas available here on Amazon I settled upon the Hohner Fire because it was modestly priced and mostly had very good reviews, hoping that I'd selected a good instrument and that my daughter would take a liking to it.


A common complaint among the negative reviews of this instrument are that the reeds are so out of tune that it renders chords played on it unlistenable, so when the instrument arrived via UPS I opened it up and checked the tuning for myself with my guitar tuner before I even mentioned the instrument to my daughter. The reeds on the one I bought are slightly sharp, but it is so slight as to require an electronic tuner to notice it. Single notes/melodies played on it sound just fine, and chords played on it sound just as good.

I gave it to my daughter (who did not know that I'd ordered it for her), and she took to it like a fish to water! She learned excellent breathing control and some music theory in band at school and was familiar with the mechanics of a keyboard from her own noodling at home, and this instrument was a perfect blending of the two.

Here are the types of things we use the melodica for in our acoustic folk rock band:

Katie covers accordion parts, as the melodica will do about 85% of what an accordion will do, and actually more than that if you just look at the melodic/keyboard side of an accordion. (We cover a great many songs by The Decemberists, so her ability to play the accordion parts works out really well.)

She covers assorted string parts in some songs, as in the second verse of The Proclaimers' "Sunshine on Leith".

She covers harmonica parts, for instance when we play Neil Young's "Harvest Moon" (in which she also plays chord fills during the verses).

She covers various keyboard parts; when we play "Oh Little Town of Bethlehem" set to the tune of The Animals' "House of the Rising Sun" she plays the Hammond B3 part.

She covers the odd flute part here and there: we play The Marshall Tucker Band's "Fire on the Mountain", and Katie plays the flute solo in the middle of the song.

And... dig this... she also covers a bagpipe part on the melodica!!! We play Steve Earle's "Copperhead Road", and Katie plays the bagpipe part at the beginning (which requires a BIG breath from her!) and also later in the song and at the end.

That one actually bears a little further explanation: to get the drone note of a bagpipe, she keeps a cloth-covered rubber band (a ponytail holder) in the instrument's case. Before we play the song she stretches it around the melodica to hold down a low "D", which is the drone note that plays below the melody.

The only drawback is that it is somewhat difficult to mic for performances where we play through a PA; vocal mics don't cover enough area to pick up the entire length of the instrument, although a condenser mic might work better. We haven't tried that so I don't know. (I am going to electrify the instrument with a series of internal piezo discs, but that's another story entirely.) But since it was bought specifically with true, unplugged performances in mind, I don't consider this a real negative on the instrument at all.

So... based on my experience with the melodica I bought for my daughter, I have zero complaint with the instrument. The tuning is just shy of perfect. The keys all work smoothly and without flaw, and as I've laid out above, it is a *remarkably* versatile instrument.

Lastly, if you'd like to hear us playing a song featuring this instrument, go to YouTube and search for user "basswhooper" (that's me!). There, find the clip "Isn't it a Lovely Night", which is my wife, daughter and I playing the aforementioned Decemberists song.

Fun.... 11 Jan 2013
By Cristina - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this as a request for Christmas for my music loving and composing son. He loved it. Warning to parents.....it is noisy and sounds like an accordian. Basic keyboarding skills also a must. The optional "tube" will need to be cleaned out on occasion (let it sit in a bowl with a splash of bleach and air dry) as it builds up crud which is a normal process if you have previous experience with wind instruments.
