Welcome to MelodicaWorld. This is a blog dedicated to the enjoyment, discussion of, and appreciation of the Melodica. Specifically, the sharing of information, videos, and resources. As a new Melodica player, I quickly realized that there was not enough information or opinion available. As a guitar player... interested in buying my first Melodica, I did not know which one to buy. Fortunately, I was able to see a few fantastic, ska and reggae videos on Youtube that have steered me towards the Hohner HM-901 (Alto). I would encourage anyone to take a look at the home recording/one man band/ two piece videos out there. They are brilliant! So please enjoy this site and use it. There are many out there who could use the information and forum. Please feel free to submit any Melodica related material, videos, links,etc. Thanks!

Hohner HM-900 or Hohner HM-901 ?  That is the question !  Which do you prefer?  The Alto or the Soprano?  The green or the red.  Both of these fine instrument have loyal fans and players.  Just take a look at the Hohner HM-900 melodica videos featured on melodicaworld...the only melodica blog on the Internet.  Please leave your comments, advice, and opinions on these two instruments


  1. I prefer the 901 alto model. It's a joy to play and the tones are more in the "natural zone" for this type of instrument.

  2. Hey! Great site! I'm not sure this is where I should be posting this but here's some melodica videos for people to enjoy! ... http://www.youtube.com/user/PaulDBurden?feature=mhee

  3. I have seen some models with only 20 keys. Are these bass melodica?
