Lowboy, I wish I had the money to throw at this part of my equipment but I still have a new Vibrandoneon and amplifer in my sight. For recording I have several good mics so no issues there, the battle is live sound. I am realizing that I will more than likely have to carry a couple of small amps that work with specific melodicas and not just one unfortunately. I like small so for now it’s my Magnatone 421 and my Fender Acoustasonic. Do check out the Meyes pick up it works great.
