Reply To: Bass Melodica in Small Band Setting?


Wow, really gives a different complexion to Rhapsody in Blue! Yes, bass melodica really sounds good there. Of course in a set piece like this the performer can choreograph the breathing ahead of time and anticipate delays to notes sounding to synchronize with other performers. I wonder how a bass melodica performer would hold up in a more improvised and perpetual motion type-setting like a jazz combo where they always need to keep the bassline going. I worry it could get exhausting. Not sure I’m ready to pull the trigger on purchasing just yet since the bass melodicas are somewhat pricey. I’m a little more inclined to get a Suzuki M37C or Yamaha P37D first since I don’t think I’ll be disappointed with either of those.
