Let us know.
There were two completely different instruments to bear the RMI Calliope name. Both were limited production items, and both appeared on the market in the same time frame, 1969.
The first one, called a Model B, consisted of 49 notes and was built in the standard RMI wood case. It was painted red, with a gold colored front panel. The unit came with its own built in amplification system. The retail price of the instrument was $595.
