Thank you, Daren! This is excellent information; I’m glad Yamaha, Suzuki, Suzuki/Hammond sell reed plates. It makes me worry less about my P-32D and upcoming P-37D.
The last thread regarding Vibrandoneon reeds was this one, about six years ago:
At the time, it…[Read more]
Yamaha also supply replacement reed plates! Some info here: https://melodicaworld.com/forums/topic/yamaha-pianica-p37d-reed-plates-uk/
Also worth bearing in mind, melodica reeds need to be rust proof. So an accordion reed might work initially, but its not a good long term option. Currently there’s 2 companies supplying high quality melodica…[Read more]
Hello Pal, I had a reed replaced on my Vibrandoneon from by a local accordion repair shop when I got a fracture on one reed, though they were able to match the reed and tune it, the match was not perfect.

My version would have longer tubing and would be at a 45-degree angle (adjustable), with a final short straight…[Read more]
I think of 37 keys as a resource that can be used.
My car has a speedometer that reads over 100. I may never drive it that fast and I might not handle it very well going that speed. Point of fact I hover around the speed limit.
However I would feel limited if there were a governor on my cars engine that kept me from going over 50mph if a…[Read more]
The black tubes do have a slightly(SLIGHTLY) better appearance. I wish they were more readily available.
