Lowboy, when you mentioned receiving several melodicas in one day, You made me feel alot better about having tried almost a dozen this year. I think now I only have to replace sometime the melodyhorn that I gave away. I do miss that one. And one day I do want to get the M37 from Suzuki, but for now the 32 will do.
The thing that has amazed me at this point is the large number of Hohner clones that are out there. Somehow I feel that Hohner hurt their reputation by not insisting on some type of patent protection. But maybe they had been around so long they didn’t feel that was important. I’m a loyalist after all these decades (5) BUT many of these copies are more than adequate and especially off season are bargains.
