The good news: for a C or G harp, you wouldn't have to retune any blow notes, or Draw 1, 2, 3 or 4. So that's 18 out of 28 reeds you wouldn't have to touch (except maybe for fine tuning to suit your preference).
The bad news: You'd have to retune draw notes in Holes 5 thru 14 down, anywhere from 2 to 4 semitones. I sometimes estimate the difficulty of a tuning job by a combination of the largest distiance, and a total combination of distance.
Total semitones to retune on this job is 27 (all down). Five 2-semitone changes, 3 3-semitone changes, and two 4-semitone changes. One of the 4-semitone retunings is on the Tiny Hole 13 draw reed.
Why not just buy one (unless you really like tuning harmonicas)?

Hello to all my fellow harpsters. I was wondering whether it was possible -
via minor adjustment/tuning - to convert a standard 14 hole Hohner 364
diatonic to a Steve Baker Special tuned harp?
