My Hohner Piano 27 melodica circa 1960 ❤️

I’ve been looking for this kind of melodica for ages — it’s the kind that Augustus Pablo played. Hohner piano 27 melodica – called piano because the earlier models had buttons rather than an actual keyboard. It has a very warm tone, not bright at all. I really want to play it in Roaring Lion but it’s a matter of blowing it well into the mic. The band is loud and this kind of acoustic instrument can just drown unless it’s really amplified. Found it on Amazon, from a second-hand shop in the U.S.
