Hello, I am new here.
Both are around the same price range and I would like to stay within the 37 key range. I also have piano experience.
My main issue is that my hands are pretty small. I have heard that the handle is a bit odd on the Yamaha. And the Suzuki’s handle looks more comfortable.
I know that it is matter of preference of the person, but I have read that the tone of the Yamaha P37D is more preferred.
I am very conflicted between the two.
Thank you! ^__^March 15, 2016 at 9:50 pm #6929Alan BrintonParticipant
The choice between these two excellent melodicas is a familiar topic here, Elizabeth! It’s hard to go wrong with either one, and experienced players here don’t tend as a group to rally around one as opposed to the other. Two thoughts, though: (1) Not everybody thinks that the best (or even a good) way to hold a melodica is by the hand strap. I never use the handle. (2) A 32 key model (the M-32C or P-32D) is narrower, lighter, and easier to hold and balance in the left hand.March 16, 2016 at 2:20 am #6930Elizabeth DecenaParticipant
I am gonna purchase the Yamaha P32D then. Maybe in the future, when I am more use to the instrument I will probably eventually get a Yamaha P37D or the Suzuki M37C. ^__^
I can’t wait to start playing when I am free or taking a break in between studying and such.
Thanks again!March 16, 2016 at 3:35 am #6932Alan BrintonParticipant
Can’t beat the P-32D, Elizabeth. I have a whole lot of melodicas, old and new, and it is still my favorite.
