  • Hello, as a new member, I would like to introduce myself: I sing in choir and play piano. For some days I bought a used Suzuki M 36. I am interested in the connection of these genres Vocal and Key.
    My instrument:
    After a cleaning I have also made a tuning test, the instrument is except for the reference tone A uniform, but detuned.
