    The resistance doesn’t bother me at all. In fact, I like it.

    I played alto sax in the Army for 4 years and was a brass player in my youth so I barely notice the resistance.

    I do find that it helps with my air efficiency though, meaning I can play longer phrases without needing to take a breath. It also makes me feel more intimately connected to the instrument, as if I have finer control over the sound with less effort than the 37D and 32D

    OP here.

    I’ll add that the body of the ERD is finished with a grippier surface than both the 32D and 37D, and is nicer to hold and fingerprint proof. The top surface has the usual shiny finish.

    I’m a fan of the textured/matte look.

    Also, I happen to really like the gig-bag it comes with. It’s stiff enough to protect against dings, bumps and bangs.

    Wow Melodica-Me, your craftsmanship is marvelous! Your playing is so sensual!

    After I watched your video I played through the tune a couple of times myself and will be adding it to my repertoire!

    I have a couple of questions for you:

    – Does the lever you operate with your left hand allow you to fine-tune the pitch of any given note as you play?

    – Have you disclosed on Melodica World how this lever works? I am very curious as it would solve a lot of intonation problems while playing with other musicians.

    – Have you patented it? You should.

    Thanks for posting this!

    Looking forward to your response.

    Thanks for your input Alan.

    I really appreciate it.

    I’ll stick with the 32D and look at spending money on a different model in the future.

    I enjoyed that.

    Very nice playing!
