    Hi Alan….Your clear description of “How To…” is much appreciated..You’re right,The screws are tiny and I can see that they could easily be lost when taking them out.I’m really pleased to hear that the screws actually go into metal inserts because I guess that would mean there would be much less chance of the screw holes threading(w…[Read more]

    i haven’t been on this site for a while but since last time I was here I spent some time in Spain and I finally bought the Suzuki M-37C and I have to say this is the best melodica I have ever had. and I have had a few.

    I love the tone and so far the tuning has kept to the perfect pitch it was when I received it.

    Just one thing,I have opened up…[Read more]

    • I have opened it and other Suzuki metal tray models. One minor issue is that the external screws attach to little square metal inserts inside. These sometimes can fall out and are easy to lose. So it’s best to work on a bath towel. Some of the screws are also tiny — I use a precision screwdriver (2.0 or 3.0). Also, the inside can usually either…[Read more]

  • Hi Alan..I was a little late for the auction so i missed out. As far as 32 keys..I actually do have a Hohner airbord 32 key but I do prefer playing with 37 keys.It’s interesting though that you think it might be a little better…

  • Sorry I haven’t answered both above post earlier but I’ve been away from “cyberspace” for a while!!
    So,firstly,Alan thanks for your take on it but through my own experience something like a musical instrument will immediately attract import duty…I learned this the hard way last time I had a melodica imported ..Perhaps it was the colourful nature…[Read more]

  • Hi David.Thanks for letting me know and that link…very helpful.

  • Hi Alan..Thanks for your detailed reply. I’ve actually been starting to think that the M-37C isn’t available in th U.S and your post seems to confirm this.As far as import duty in Viet Nam,I actually had a melodica sent to me from New York last year and the import duty made it a very expensive melodica!I know through having been here quite a while…[Read more]

  • Thanks for your reply,Paul.It seems that this melodica is really quite something.I actually checked on Ebay myself and ,as you say,none available.I know that they’re readily available in Japan but I’m, based in Viet Nam and that being so, I saw getting one while I have someone in the U.S as a better alternative …no import costs for a start!!

  • My very first post and I am hoping someone can help me.I have quite a few melodicas but I have been hearing some very good things about a particular model of melodica to the point where I would like to purchase one
    so..

    Does anybody know whether someone is selling or there is a music outlet in the U.S where I can purchase Suzuki M-37C. I need it…[Read more]
