Just a quick comment, if Hohner was after the professional musician or the melodica aficionado with this new melodica they would have given specs and talked about how great it performs, they just say “jam with a ukulele”? They are clearly looking for the youth market with this jewel. The Superforce is a good example of a cool looking instrument with no substance. There is a market for a quality instrument but the market for youth instruments is so huge Hohner knows where the money is. Why would they have discontinued the piano 36 or the professional 36 if the sales were there, they would have improved it for today’s musician. Suzuki on the other hand is meeting the needs of the more serious melodica player as well as the student and novice. Yamaha is closely coming in second. If the manufactures of these instruments want to come off the toy list and onto the professional instrument list they have to dedicate some R&D dollars and hopefully get some well known recording artist to use them. Ok so it’s time for me to get off my soap box and go and practice.
