Yamaha Band and Orchestral Division announces its new line of Pianicas. Available for the first time in the U.S., Pianicas are free-reed instruments similar to accordions and harmonicas. Pianicas are popular in Asian markets and are used primarily for general music education. The top choice for many educators and professional musicians, Yamaha Pianicas produce clear, full tones with solid projection and feature anti-corrosive reeds, providing stable intonation. Yamaha will showcase three Pianica models. The 25-note P25F, the 32-note P32D, and the 37-note, three-octave P37D. Each includes a shock-resistant, double walled, blow-molded case, along with a mouthpiece and blowing pipe.

The sound quality is very good. The best way I would describe its sound is as being somewhere between an accordion and a clarinet. It takes more initial breath to get any sound out of the higher notes than the lower notes, but it takes more breath to play lower notes (especially between F3 and C4) at mezzo forte than higher notes. I've played clarinet before, and the buzz you feel on notes below middle C is not unlike the buzz you feel on the low notes of a clarinet. The keys are significantly narrower than piano keys; on a piano I can reach a 9th easily (or a 10th if I stretch), but on this melodica I can reach an 11th easily (or a 12th if I stretch). The keys are springy like an unweighted electric keyboard.
There is a hole at the bottom to allow you to shake out spit after a long session. The back has a black leather strap, useful for when playing it vertically with the mouthpiece (it seems to be louder when played that way, though I can't tell if it's actually louder or if it's just the effect of being closer to the instrument).
The spit release doesn't seem to have an outlet hole but I haven't produced enough wetness to see where it comes out.
Tonality is fairly identical to hohner reeds so indicative of harmonica sounds. Keys are smaller than standard piano, they respond accurately to the touch.
someday someone is going to make one of these purely electronic MIDI controller.
