I see now that the “Gakki” site that lists Suzuki melodions is not Tokai Gakki. “Gakki” means “musical instrument.” The Gakki site is Yasuhara Gakki, i.e. Yasuhara Musical Instrument Company, a distributor of multiple brands of keyboard harmonicas.December 20, 2014 at 3:42 am #3600barbParticipant
here’s a link to audio I made of 5 different instruments. Used a cheap Zoom and reverb from Audacity, along with my cheesy Casio accompaniment
1 :01 Yamaha P32D
2 :30 Hammond 44
3 1:03 Hohner piano 36 vintage
4 1:40 Suzuki A34C
5 2:07 Suzuki vintage A27December 31, 2014 at 1:00 am #3644AndreParticipant
Thank you for this upload, very useful.
I really like the sound of the Hammond 44!January 2, 2015 at 9:59 pm #3659barbParticipant
Yea, I was on the fence about spending the money for the Hammond 44, but when a friend brought one over, I was online buying after playing for 15 seconds.March 21, 2015 at 9:45 pm #4466Alan BrintonParticipant
Hey, Adam. I notice that the photo of your M-36 shows a tube with fittings and also one of those nice little plastic mouthpiece containers, neither of which would have been included with the M-36 when it first appeared. This suggests that yours is one of the later ones during the 1961-74 time span. It also has an A-32 showing on the brochure (of which I also have a copy), which probably means your M-36 is late 1960s or early 1970s. Maybe that helps explain why it’s in better condition than mine. That means that mine, while busted up, is probably more authentic. So, would you like to trade?March 22, 2015 at 7:50 am #4467Adam TombsParticipant
Hey Alan, my M-36 is in fantastic condition. It really appears to have been played very little. Its one of my go to melodicas so I think I will keep hold of it for now.
