Reply To: Good term for referencing melodicas, pianicas, and melodions collectively

Alan Brinton

I’m inclined to agree with Questscher. On the other hand, I see the problem that Lowboy is raising: we don’t want to say that all these instruments are melodicas, but it might be useful to have a general term that covers the “family” of instruments that are closely enough related to the melodica to be getting attention here. “Keyboard mouth organ”?

But I think “melodica” is the right word for melodions and pianicas, which are clearly the same instrument.
