Not entirely true. They're tuned the same, but the Slide Harp is of better
construction and - most importantly - has valves over the reeds. The Koch has no
valves, which is one reason it has earned a reputation for sounding like doggy
doo. (I also have a Koch in a drawer somewhere, sadly...I
now have a Super Chromonica).
