Reply To: Loudest and quietest melodicas available


Hi Fred, yes, good observation – each melodica recording was matched to a similar level. This is because the backing track is at a constant level, and any weak melodica signals (from a quiet instrument) would be too quiet in comparison to the backing. In the same way, any loud melodicas would be too loud for the backing!

So you can only use the video to compare the tone of the instruments. I can’t remember any particularly quiet melodicas apart from the Clavietta.

If you’re looking for a quiet instrument, and don’t mind a vintage model, try a Clavietta, it’s lovely!
