> what's the real motivation for getting a flat key harp

Just to impress. (Just kidding)

However... Some solo guitar-singers like to stump harp players who ask to
sit in. When you have all 12 keys, You can join the guitar player who tunes
down a half-step. In a way, it says you are for real, and serious about
your instruments.

Only two reasons I know to buy a certain key:

   1. for the comfort of the singer's range
   2. for the tone and texturer of the harp you like (high, or low)

Oops, a third reason: You like the response of bends in a certain range.
