If you are one of the increasing number of players practicing the over blow technique popularised by such players as Howard Levy, you will probably want to try a Golden Melody. It has larger sound holes and “long slot” reeds, which make over blows easier. Another feature of the Golden Melody is it’s tuning, which is equal temperament, which optimises the playing of single notes and melodies. The Golden Melody has a classic retro style, the cover plates are rounded at the ends and flush with the red plastic comb, which makes it comfortable in the hand. The Golden Melody comes in a tough red plastic box.
Replacement reed plates are available.
