I’ve listened to some video’s of the Angel melodyhorn and realised that this melodica has a very unique sound unlike any other melodica. It is a very dark yet sweet sound, almost angelic.
Does anybody know why this is so? Does it have something to do with the reeds of the instrument or the body?
Are there any other melodicas with a similar dark yet sweet sound or is the angel a unique type of instrument?
Here is a video to illustrate my point.

Reversed image in this video — maybe it was taken in the mirror. The pianist of the band he mentions, the Frim Fram Four, plays a Yamaha P-37D. Dunno about the Angel Melodyhorn.June 8, 2015 at 2:14 pm #5443Johan PieterseParticipant
That’s interesting, thank you very much. Most professional melodica players who’re playing midrange instruments prefer Yamaha over most other brands. It would have being wonderful if the guy in the video played a few good tunes on his Angel to really display the potential of the instrument instead of just fiddling around. But even so I was smitten by the sound of that instrument.June 8, 2015 at 3:06 pm #5444Alan BrintonParticipant
The guy in the video is too inexperienced to play good tunes, Johan. But the Melodyhorn gets favorable reviews from people here who know melodicas, and it is a nice looking instrument. If you are intrigued by the sound, why not just buy one and let us know how you like it?June 22, 2015 at 11:04 pm #5515KevinParticipant
Does anybody know of a U.S. source for the Angel Melodyhorn?
Googling brings me to Amazon UK.
