Reply To: A new piano and melodica video


Thank you Daren.
Well, I have mixed feelings about it.

On the positive side:
* Terrific build quality, extremely easy to open and maintain.
* Tight air chamber with responsive reeds.
(Having that said, the beginner’s Swan I own is more responsive than the Yamaha. However, its sound is less rich)
* Light weight.

On the negative side
* Sound is not as rich as I would expect. There may be an inherent tradeoff between responsiveness and richness.
* Flat sound (less rich) on loud playing. I still owe you a recording, and I’ll get to that soon.
* Moisture released inside the instrument. I really prefer taking it out at the time of my choice, rather than keeping it inside and then it partly vaporize and partly go out when it chooses to.

So all in all, I don’t see myself do serious recordings or concerts using the Yamaha.
No doubt that It’s a nice instrument which probably worth the 100$ I paid. But it does not provide the sound richness of my demand.

This is why I have great expectations for my “new” Pro36..
