My question for those of you that play the M37 what is the added plus? Is it the flex tube? I love my Suzuki Hammond melodeon’s so I am thinking of trying one out but the color really turns me off.
The plus is the goose neck flex tube from the Hammond 44. My guess is that it is otherwise just an M-37C. In terms of color scheme, the regular black M-37C would be a better match for your conservative tastes. I have a black M-36 (ca. 1990?) that would also look pretty spiffy with the black tube.
In this September,22th I performed at melodion festival in tokyo,
then I checked the M-37C PLUS.
Leed: same as M-37C,but sound was little bit difference because of paint.
Key: same as hammond44(yellowish)
accessories: goose-neck mouthpiece(I don’t need it because I have it already),Shoulder Case(coloring was kawaii)
It seems to have been the target customer, such as: “Hammond44 or pro-V2 is too expensive, but want to buy a professional model”…
Some of the performers were using the PLUS in the melodion festival For advertising.
These videos will be published at a later date.
Yesterday I bought the M-37C Plus and today returned it, the reason? many notes and octaves out of tune !!
I share the brochure:
Alan, you are “The Melodica Encyclopedia Man” I have two questions:
¿What is the difference between “tapered reed” vs “Reed”?
¿What is the difference between M-37 (1977~1999) and the M-37C? ¿The reeds?
