Yamaha Red Pianica Offers a Bright Sound and Bold Look For a Long-Lasting Impression
BUENA PARK, Calif. (November 2, 2020) — Yamaha today introduced the P-37ERD Red Pianica, the newest addition to the company's Pianica lineup. It joins the company's previously released P-37EBK and P-37EBR models and offers the same impeccable tuning and quality for which these instruments are known, in an attention-grabbing red body.
The Pianica is a breath-powered melodica, or a small keyboard that is played by blowing air through a mouthpiece. The sound of the instrument is best described as between a harmonica and an accordion, but with more body and depth than other melodica-type instruments.
Performers looking for a professional-level Pianica that provides a strong presence on stage and during instrumental solos will be very pleased with the P-37ERD, which has a brilliant sound that carries and easily cuts through live accompaniment. This new sound was achieved through internal modifications and ABS plastic used on the underside of the body, rather than Ecodear® plastic used in the P-37EBK and P-37EBR, which provides a warmer tone.
"The Red Pianica is the perfect addition to our family of Pianicas, giving live musicians the tonal quality for which Yamaha is known, with a brand-new look and sound," said Matt Kerns, accessories marketing manager, Yamaha Winds & Strings. "While the other P-37E Pianica models are great for musicians seeking a mellow sound for intimate jam sessions or playing at home, professional-level players will love the Red Pianica's rich, bright sound and bold red body that commands the attention of a crowd."
The Red Pianica P-37ERD features a three-octave note range beginning with F below middle C. The instrument comes with a mouthpiece extension tube and a soft carrying case.
