Reply To: Comparison: Horner Professional 36 – Clavietta – Hammond 44 HP – Yamaha P-37D


It is surprising to see that the Yamaha held it own against formitable contenders that cost (or would cost) 4 to 7 times as much as the yamaha in today’s dollars. Relatively speaking, I really liked the tone of the Yamaha as well as the Clavietta.

The question that one would have to answer is, is playing a Hohner professional melodica with its wonderous size, feeling of solidness, individual reeds, historical significance, feel, etc. more satisfying than playing a light, modern, plastic Yamaha pianica that sound nearly as good and offers several other advantages?

It is a tough question to answer.
