Re: [Harp-L] hohner crossover

RJ, That's a great A/B analysis between the LO and Crossover. Now that you
can get that 6 OB you should be able to make it work for you pretty easily.
Think of it as the next octave up from a 3 hole half step draw bend. On an
A harp that would be a G, I think. In second position it's the flatted 3rd.
I find it useful to the max in all kinds of music, FWIW.
