As my wife bought me a melodica and I started learning to play it, there is one thing which puzzles me significantly. How should I remove condensate from it? - it was far easier with flute (recorder) which could be!
Specifically it is Hohner Student 32 - there are no any easily detachable covers or something like this. Only round button on a back side, which (when pressed) allows air flow to run without sound. I suppose this could also be used for purpose somehow, but there is no mentioning in manual.
What I do now is detaching mouthpiece and blowing condensate out of it, then shaking melodica violently with the air intake down.
However some humidity remains inside because some keys for few first seconds clearly do "clogged" sound. Probably because of redistributing condensate. So I feel myself somewhat silly :)
Thank you in advance!
