This tuning extends the range of bendable draw notes downwards by repeating the note configuration in holes 1-3 one octave lower, retaining their familiar pattern. It's described in detail in the Harp Handbook. This permits many phrasings in 2nd or 5th positions to be played in the exactly same way over a range of 2 octaves instead of only a single octave.
