Excalibur 37 Note Pro Artist Series Melodica Black / False Advertisment

1 WI, United States Review updated:


I ordered an Excalibur 37 Note Pro Artist Series Melodica from Jim Laabs Music a few months ago for $85.00.

I had previously bought another 37 Key Melodica from Amazon. There is no brand name on this melodica but the advertisement described it as a student melodica. It had one review and the customer also mentioned it was a toy. It cost me $45.00.

These melodicas are exactly the same thing except the color. I was then to find that a German company called Schoenhut® toy pianos makes this melodica as well.

This was total false advertisement!!! They call this a professional model Melodica. There is nothing professional about this thing. Not only did the melodica turn out to be a toy the one I paid less money for sounds better. The Melodica from Jim Laabs has no sound quality and the key action and reed response is terrible it's practically defective. They will not take a return.

I am also discovering That Jim Laabs Music is located 1 and Excalibur Accordions are located on the same street. The pictures attached show that they look exactly the same except the color.

    I think that the Triple Crown Excalibur is the biggest rip off they have. It's exactly the same model as the 37 Note Pro Artist Series except they include an external pickup. Apparently the pick up doesn't work very well either. They are selling one of the lowest quality melodicas models available on the market and advertising it as a professional instrument as well as selling it for over 2 times what it's actually worth. To add to it, they sell you the pick up which barely works. "Triple Crown" just means triple rip off!!
