Andy and Oscar – intriguing developments!
This is the info on the site (edited for clarity):
The former BALLONE-BURINI-Eolina will be renamed Vibrandoneon from 2014, of which the rights were transferred from Victoria to BALLONE-BURINI.
They will now manufacture the following models:
Piano-Vibrandoneon: 37 or 45 keys
Button-Vibrandoneon 37 notes (3 rows), or 49 notes (4 rows graded)
Blowing technique: only on blowing/preasure, or on blowing and sucking
Case: black plastic, or natural maple wood
Internal make up of the blowing-and-sucking Vibrandoneon: 2 reed sets without reed valves, 1 rank on blowing, 1 rank on sucking
So, it looks like the 2 reed sets will be at the same pitch – one assigned to blowing, the other assigned to sucking..?
Black plastic sounds like a good idea. It won’t look as nice, but would eliminate so many of the existing problems
