Reply To: Pinocchio Pianino

It’s louder than a Clavietta, but not quite as loud as a P32D. I also replaced the gasket on my Pianetta and it’s playing well except for one reed that seems to have failed. The Pianetta is much softer. Possibly that’s influenced by full 1/2 inch strips rather than 1/4 inch. I’m thinking that partially lining the reed chamber of a melodica with strips of gasket tape might be a way to reduce volume or soften the sound.
