Hi guys! I too am a newbie to the world of melodicas. I was inspired after seeing Jon Batiste on Colbert. I saw the instrument and thought “What the hell is that?” but it looked like he was having so much fun playing it, I had to have one. Your site has been invaluable in helping me choose my first melodica – actually a pianica, the Yamaha P37D. It should arrive today just in time for my birthday! I also am looking for a vintage Hohner, preferably a Piano 32. I have a question though, are the ones produced in the Czech Republic as well made as the ones made in Germany? Any advice would be so appreciated. Again, love the site and hope to make some like-minded friends.
