A versatile keyboard harmonica with 3 mouthpieces that let you play it any way you want.

Designed in collaboration with leading harmonica manufacturer Suzuki Musical Instruments, the Hammond 44 Acoustic-Electric Melodion produces unique sounds that work in all genres of music”pop, jazz, roots, rock, country, blues, Latin, reggae, world/ethnic, and folk.

The Hammond 44 incorporate a built-in dynamic microphone with 1/4" phone jack that reduces the mechanical noise captured by external microphones. The microphone delivers exceptionally clear, HD-quality sound.

The 44-note piano-style keyboard has a slightly shallower key stroke than other keyboards, giving you fast fingering and smooth glissandos.

You can play the Melodion any way you want using the three included mouthpieces, Use the short mouthpiece and included hand strap to play the Hammond 44 like a trumpet. Using the flexible mouthpiece, you can hold the 44 at arm's length or sling it on like a guitar by attaching a guitar strap (sold separately) to the included strap buttons. Using the L-joint long mouthpiece, you can play it as a tabletop instrument or on top of your organ, piano, or synth. It's non-skid feet will keep the 44 in place as you play.
