Melody Makers are interesting harps indeed. I have heard Lee and others 
make play incredible music on these harps.  They are tuned as follows...

1 2 3 4 5  6 7 8 9  10
C|E|A|C|E |G|C|E|G |C

However I personally don't like the 9 draw tuned half a step sharp,  I 
feel that particular note looses some it's "funkyness" when you can't 
bend that note.  Anyone who's proficient enough at bending those top note 
will have no problem getting that F# when they need it.
