de Avena Braga (2015) describes this as a "fake Bressan". Adrian Brown comments that this instrument is enigmatic:
Mark is unlike others by Bressan and workmanship, wod and manufacturing details are close that found on SAM 153 and 154
Windway entrance nicely curved, but exit completely flat; block correspondingly low and step is small, in the style of factory instruments
Pitch high for Bressan
Cutup very small, 3.5 mm.
Turning more German than English
Under edge very long, c. 35 mm, not machine cut but crude
Photograph, measurements and notes (by Adrian Brown): de Avena Braga (2015: 362-364, figs 162-165).
