Re: Tuning one-row Hohner


Tuning the A flat on a C box seems off to me.

In a nutshell, cajun tuning on a C box would have the Bs and the Es -15 cents and the Fs +15 cents (from equal tempered tuning). However, if you play a lot in F (or third position), the sharpened Fs would be a problem so you may want to keep them at 0, or anywhere in between for a compromise.

Then the amount of tremolo is another question. I like a couple cents difference between the two M reeds. Even as little as 1 or 2 cents seems to fatten up the tone.
