If you need something simple, but expected, you can really trust to the Thomann Melodica. Simple as a tank, but sounds very nice. Comes in the nice travel bag together with the small pipe and the mouthpiece - for your personal style of playing. I am keyboard player in the wedding cover band. After byuing this gear I can not stand to show my Thomann Melodica to my friends, so I luckilly took it to the wedding gig. Unfortunately somehow my keyboard stopped to work for a while durring the show, but "analog" Thomann Melodica saved me - I can played my solo parts without any troubles. So, if there are place for acoustic or unplugged show, inside or out - the Thomann Melodica will satified all your needs. Some people wrote that you need power to blow - to play the Thomann Melodica - my gear works very well without any special preassure. The only thing I would prefer different is the color of the Thomann Melodica - right now it comes in bright blue - so it looks more cheap or childish or not so serious - I would prefer classical black - in my case as a gear for wedding musician it will fit better.
