That is a beautiful instrument. It looks to essentially be the treble section of an accordion with a sealed chamber instead of bellows. Are the reeds arranged the same way in pairs? My only concern with the blow/suck air movement would be the potential to inhale mold from the instrument. As funky as some melodicas can get, that could be a real concern. It looks to have a hanger for a neck strap-is that how you play it, or do you just cradle it in your hands? How easy is it to access the reeds for tuning?
