    The 1896 patent by Hubbard D.B. Williams shows 2 possible forms of a cylindrical free reed music instrument.

    You can find it in the google patent search under US 569777 A

    Figures 1-3 showing the bisonoric version (blow + draw reeds), and the smallest form in figures 4 and 5 (only blow reeds)

    It has no keyboard mechanism, one can only turn the button at the back to the left or to the right.
    It’s more a music toy instrument, or a pitch pipe with 12 or 24 free reeds.

    Anyone knows of a commercial make or a historic model of this patent?
