    Hello I just wanted to inquire if melodicas come with more voicings than one, like an accordion that can play two to four reeds at once with the press of one key, and if they don’t make any like this does anyone have the experience of building a melodica with more than one reed set, sort of like building a harmonium without the bellows?

    • Hello Joseph, the only one made is the Vibrandoneon, which has the capabilities of playing two voices at one time. This is the only one that I know of.

    • I’m building a prototype of a 16’+8′ reed clavietta-style instrument called Bandonina. It’s a custom instrument for a finnish composer.
