Reply To: Yamaha 32 (vintage)

Thanks! Wow, those keys are even longer than those of a new Yamaha P-32D. This confirms my view that the Pianica 32A is a significant jump toward Pianica modernity from the Pianica 32. I just got (just now opened) a P-32D that was made in Japan rather than in Indonesia. It looks identical at first glance, but I’m anxious to play it, take it apart, and make some close comparisons. The long mouthpiece with my Pianica 32 looks old and worn. I started out thinking it was a later addition, but maybe these were actually original equipment, especially considering the small diameter of the mouthpiece receptacle on the 32 and the exact fit and color match. I like this extended mouthpiece. More to come!
