I wouldn't want to get in the way of a good harp-l friendly flame war, but
I've always felt that this particular myth was due to a misuse of the pucker
technique rather than an actual pro of tb-ing.

Basically, playing 100% tb forces you to play from deep down, from the
throat, since your tongue and mouth are busy tb-ing. Hence the 'richer
tone'. However, you can achieve the very same depth of playing puckering,
but it has to be a conscious effort to play from the throat and chest rather
than from the mouth...

That's my take on it anyway...
