Hey Everyone! I have picked up a recent interest in playing the melodica. If you don't know what it is, it is a piano looking instrument that you blow into and press the keys to open and close the reeds. John Medeski from Medeski Martin & Wood plays one as well as many reggae and other jazz artists. Can anyone give me some good info on what to look for? Should I get an alto, soprano, or tenor melodica? Can they be picked up cheap used? Anyone want to sell one?

Dude... you can clean them

Used = MUCH MUCH CHEAPER!!! I am looking at eBay and see some used ones for really cheap on there. I just put a post on craigslist. We will see what happens in the next day or two!
