Harmonipan: Brand Name or Generic?
By Ben Willis

I don't mean to seem argumentative, especially as I'm no expert on the
subject, but I've seen examples of barrel organs labeled as
"Harmonipan" and in at least one case "Harmoni-Pan," all with several
different manufacturers' names attached, such as Frati among others.

Examples:

These all come from the first page of a Google image search for
"Harmonipan."  They all seem to follow the same general design, the
most notable aspect being the row of piccolos in the face of the organ.
