Reply To: Suzuki B24 Bass Melodion – Gapping

Gianluca Barbaro

Thanks Alan, Melodica-Me!
It’s my understanding that the bladder is required to even air pressure along the instrument: is that just for dynamics, or is it to be able to play chords across the range? In both cases, I think I could get rid of it and use it as a monodic instrument only.
I know we should trust Suzuki’s engineers, but I’m not convinced that a good gapping couldn’t improve the situation: I’ll have to risk ruining a 200€ instrument and make some experiment myself sooner or later 😉
