Pentatonic tunings

Anything apart from the two mainstream default harmonicas (Solo-tuned fully-valved chromatic, and un-valved Richter 10-hole diatonic). Alternate tunings, different construction, new functionality, interesting old designs, wishful-thinking... whatever!

what about Flat Slide?
I'm playing through a gypsy jazz fakebook so the vast majority are in guitar keys G C D F etc.
Only been at this one year and I'm strongly considering switching to fourkey (and legato) based on the logic of pentatonic tunings.

Chromatic approach notes are one of the hallmarks of this style. Would anyone want to suggest a flat slide layout? Also could the same concept be applied to a 10 hole turbo slide setup so that the two necessary draw bends became blow turboslides?

Thank you for this informative ongoing discussion.
