Reply To: Yamaha P37D vs Suzuki M37

The link takes us to lots of interesting facts about Julie, Julie, but not to the photo.

It sounds like it’s a good thing you didn’t get the big Suzuki. How about putting your middle, ring, and little finger through the strap opening, and resting your thumb and index finger on the two sides. I have not tried that configuration until just now, but it seems to work well, with the melodica balanced. One reason I prefer a 32 key melodica over a 37 is that it is easier to balance in the left hand, so there should be fewer of the kinds of stresses that might create or aggravate an injury. And sooner or later you need to try a a Yamaha P-25F. There’s also a whole world of delightful vintage 25-27 key melodicas out there!
