I left my comments on Facebook, but I’ll repeat them here: It also has the look of the small vintage Italian models and in particular the look and key range as the little Orgamonica, though with the ingenious innovation of moving the mouthpiece around to the back so you can both blow and strike the keys at the same time. Are the reeds vintage or more recent Italian? I’ve been hoping for some time that someone would design a model to use with those great old reeds that are so easy to salvage.? My favorite Diamante so far!
