I think it would help potential customers to not only create standardized names for particular types of melodica sounds, but to also provide videos with high quality sound to give customers a better idea of what they’re thinking about buying.
I prefer a dark, focused sound. In other words, I prefer a harmonica like sound over an accordion one. I find it difficult to record and mix instruments that are overly bright. Although admittedly it is usually easier to remove high frequencies than it is to try to add them.
Great topic– I’m looking forward to reading some more responses :).
