It’s adequate, Sharon, but either the Yamaha P37D or the SUZUKI M-32C is a far, far superior instrument if you’re willing to pay a bit more. Amazon has the Suzuki with free shipping right now for $65.66 (if you’re in the U.S.). I have all three of these melodicas and have taken the P-32D and M-32C apart and tuned them. The build quality and the sound of both is much better than the Hohner 32b. The 32b or almost any cheap melodica is fine as a starter, though, and you can always upgrade later.
