I'll repost a message by Swingin'Chad from <BR>the old board about the same topic: <BR> <BR>"All Melodicas have the same basic sound. <BR>They come in different ranges like Alto <BR>Soprano etc but any one of them will do. <BR>I believe Pablo used a piano-style maybe <BR>an HM-26 judging from pictures I've seen. <BR>I bought an HM-901 from a junk shop and I <BR>get the same sound. Very easy to play and <BR>nothing else gets that classic Dub sound. <BR> <BR>Check out the various styles at: <BR><A HREF=" ... dicas.html" TARGET="_top"> ... as.html</A> <BR> <BR>Swingin' Chad"

Just to say i bough today the HM-900... Perfect for dubwise... <BR>I have check both Alto or soprano... and i have take the soprano because the root key is C&#40;do&#41; like the root key in my dub... so i think it's correct but before starting dub i didn't know anythings.. <BR> <BR>After the quantitation of the midi keyboard.. i go to learn how to play in live! <BR> <BR>Now i understand why augustus is so called the king of this instrument! <BR> <BR><A HREF="" TARGET="_top">KoCha</A>
