    Thanks Alan, definitely too quiet then, and I really don’t want to use amplification. Very happy t have discovered I can buy a new reed plate set for under £60 yesterday, as it seems the Pro 37 is loudest, and has served me well (aside from it going so out of tune!); and the M37C was noticeably quieter.

  • Just ordered a reed plate for the Pro 37 v.2. Only £60 inc. delivery. I wish I had known about this 2 years ago when the first one went out of tune!

  • Well I’m still reluctant to tune my Suzuki Pro37…. so many keys out of tune.

  • Thanks Daren, yes, I’ve been too scared to even take a melodica apart but I’ve just read the article on how to tune one and I think I’m going to give it a go!
    Thanks for the info about the M37C too.

  • Hi, I just joined this site, what a great resource!

    I’m thinking of buying a Suzuki M37C. Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the M37C and the M37C Plus? Is it more than just the colour scheme?

    I’ve been playing in a Street Band for 10 years now, and have got through two Suzuki Pro37’s in the past 3 years. I like the instrument,…[Read more]
