Thanks Melodica-Me. Yes, I am ordering the gooseneck one, and I also will get the one without the gooseneck for my cajon :). I do a lot of the performing in the melodica on the street busking in NYC, which is why I am using such a small pickup. Below is the amp I usually use for backing tracks and what I will probably have to use outside. That and a pedal board. I might start doing some looping stuff with the amplified melodica (with an rc-50), and maybe try to do a live performance of this: (any other reich fans?). I hope it will be able to pickup the nice Jazz sounds like note bending.
