I bought the melodica 1 year ago and can now hopefully write something useful about it. For me as a guitar player, I like the concept of simplicity here, hehe. The small sleeve is a nice addition if you want to put the melodica on the table for some time and so you better concentrate on playing with both hands. What I didn't like about it was that some keys aren't really in tune, but that's actually what I expected of an instrument in that price range. And be aware of breathing enough when you want to play more than 3 keys at once!
I have played this melodica for a year as a joke, and now one note has become noticeably out of tune. I guess, I should have taken care of the cleaning instead of letting the salive dry out by itself. On the other hand, the price is so low, that I can't really complain.
I play a lot of indie/folk music, and I find this to be an excellent accompaniment to an acoustic guitar sound. It gives you an accordion like sound with less skill required. This melodica is rather sturdy and seems to be quite reliable.
This was the first melodica I bought and I've taken it to sessions to play in public. It was easy to play with a super sound. It is still in tune after two years. It was this instrument that made me fall in love with the melodica, so portable to take out to play and such a nice sound. I've since bought a very expensive Suzuki melodica but I still play this one from time to time.
