all right.  finally, someone has come out and defined "good tone."  it's not 
thin or tinny.  thank you.  now we have a point of reference.
but, suppose a listener likes a tinny sounding harp?  at least in the context 
of a given musical situation.  does this mean they actually like "bad tone"?  
is the definition variable, or are you saying, conclusively, that any tinny 
or thin harp sound is "bad tone"?
