I'll repost a message by Swingin'Chad from
the old board about the same topic:

"All Melodicas have the same basic sound.
They come in different ranges like Alto
Soprano etc but any one of them will do.
I believe Pablo used a piano-style maybe
an HM-26 judging from pictures I've seen.
I bought an HM-901 from a junk shop and I
get the same sound. Very easy to play and
nothing else gets that classic Dub sound.

Check out the various styles at:

Just to say i bough today the HM-900... Perfect for dubwise...
I have check both Alto or soprano... and i have take the soprano because the root key is C(do) like the root key in my dub... so i think it's correct but before starting dub i didn't know anythings..

After the quantitation of the midi keyboard.. i go to learn how to play in live!

Now i understand why augustus is so called the king of this instrument!
