Reply To: Where to buy Yamaha Pianica

Alan Brinton

I have ordered many melodicas from Japan. Typically, the prices are significantly lower but shipping cost is much higher, so that it’s pretty much a wash on new Japanese melodicas. But current models that are used commonly sell at even lower prices on Japanese auction sites, are typically in good condition, and are a bargain. It’s very easy to find a Yamaha P-32D, since this is so widely used in the schools, harder to find a P-37D. I am of the strong opinion that there is even less risk in buying from Japan than in buying from a non-Japanese source on eBay (but there’s not much risk there either). In my experience, Japanese sellers are typically scrupulously honest.
