    That was my first time playing the Pro-37 and it has a great touch. Made moving around the melodica effortless. And I agree with the power of it. That small setup meant everything was quite audible. We performed those pieces later that evening in a venue, and using a microphone for the melodica is always a problem. Has anyone found any interesting ways of micing it up?

    Nathan, I have been using the Myers pick up for my Vibrandoneon and Diamanté Wind Vox with lots of success. I have never used it on a Suzuki, Akeo has just put out a new set up that is made for Melodica as well that I beleave she uses it with her Suzuki melodion. I will message her instagram page to you.

    Sounds lovely! Any mic that round off the harshness and adds a bit of warmth is good. I’ve had great results with a Shure SM58

    I have begun putting together layered videos of melodicas, mainly for fun and to show some techniques of the melodica through well known pieces! Would be great to get feedback for future ones.

    Very nice! I think that the articulation of comping can do more “swingy”.

    Really enjoyed Nathan’s Swing video. Very nice coordination of the multiple instruments.

    Super. Klezmer works well for a combination of melodicas.

    I’m delighted to see the inclusion of the Soprano; those 1970s Suzuki 25s are great little instruments.
