The most airtight chromatic that I own is a hands-free model built from a 270.
Vern Smith put this one together, but Chris Reynolds is still making them.
If there were a way to fit a button to it, I would play it more often!
Any idea how to make this happen?

Given the potential threat to their business posed by a new species of harmonica I am hoping that acoustic manufacturers evolve. Although they won't face extinction (there are still a lot of acoustic guitars selling) their market will definitely take a big hit if digital harmonica like the DM48 are widely marketed. And they will be. But with improvements to the slider and air tightness the manufacturers of acoustic chromatic harmonicas will be able to compete more effectively.
