Hi,The one big difference between the reed plates of a standard 270 and the 270 Deluxe besides the former being nailed to the comb and the latter being attached with screws is the fact that the reed plates on the 270 Deluxe is roughly 30% THICKER than the standard 270's are (that's just the reed plates and NOT the reeds themselves), which makes them play louder and more aggressively, much like the difference between the Toots Mellow Tone and the Toots Hard Bopper reed plates are.

As near as I can tell the 270 deluxe and Discovery 48 reed plates are the
same, except that the deluxe plates have narrower holes for the cover
plates screws. I'm talking about the two very big holes on either end.
I've put 270 deluxe plates on a discovery 48 and vice versa; both work
fine. They are both attached with screws, not nails. If you're buying new
plates save yourself some money and get the Discovery 48 plates.
My favorite chromatic is a Discovery 48 with 270 deluxe cover plates and
mouthpiece, that I've tweaked a bit. (FYI you don't need the backing plate
when you put the deluxe mouthpiece on a 48.) If you want a plastic combed
270 this is a good option. But I may try one of Brendan Power's new 270
combs - they look really sweet.
I've been chatting with Geroge about getting chromatic plates in a
different (not C) key drilled for the 48 mouthpiece. He seems like a great
guy to deal with and has very, very fair prices.
