I want to learn to play melodica so I might get this one.Have you guys ever owned it?If so, do you recommend it?November 3, 2015 at 3:07 pm #6204Alan BrintonParticipant
It’s adequate, Sharon, but either the Yamaha P37D or the SUZUKI M-32C is a far, far superior instrument if you’re willing to pay a bit more. Amazon has the Suzuki with free shipping right now for $65.66 (if you’re in the U.S.). I have all three of these melodicas and have taken the P-32D and M-32C apart and tuned them. The build quality and the sound of both is much better than the Hohner 32b. The 32b or almost any cheap melodica is fine as a starter, though, and you can always upgrade later.November 4, 2015 at 6:52 pm #6206Alan BrintonParticipant
Another option at about $50 is the Suzuki Melodion MX-32C. I haven’t yet actually played one of these, but it is the mid-range 32 key Suzuki, between the cheaper Suzuki Study-32 (better in my opinion than the Hohner Student or Instructor) and the high end Suzuki M-32C. The MX series Suzukis are of superior build quality to the cheaper models and are reported to have very good sound. The M series Melodions have a metal tray, the MX a plastic tray but not flimsy like the the Study-32. The MX models have only recently become available on Amazon in the U.S.November 6, 2015 at 1:08 am #6210SharonParticipant
Thanks for the reply.I might just get this one for now and maybe upgrade later.
