I’m replying to my own post as I found some answers. Tech support at K&K who make the spot pickup say that that kind of pickup isn’t optimal for the melodica. It will always pick up the sounds of the keys. Alternatively they propose their Silver Bullet system with preamp.On their site it lists for $200 but it’s on Amazon for $143. https://www.kksound.com/silver-bullet Think I will get that, and keep the spot pickup for another instrument. If anyone has other ideas Id love to hear them.
