Nice post Robert-

"want to avoid having a harp for "one tune" only."

This seems to be one of the less desirable aspects of the altered tuning mindset.
...and how the heck do those who do it catalog and choose what to use on the fly? My question comes from a free-lancer point of view.
I could imagine a 50 plus harmonica gig case without backup harps!
