Re: Tuning one-row Hohner

Orville,

That is known as "difference" tuning and does in fact give the impression of a louder, fuller sound.
Two single reeds in unison sound lifeless and not necessarily louder or more distinct.

And 1 -2 cents apart is not discernible by most human ears.. in other words you really can't put your finger on it but it's there.

Good call.
