I think it more the player who makes it sound better or worse.
When playing a harp in a rack is âplaying loudâ with a very strong attack any tuning wiill sound âbadâ
If the player has good tpne/control over his embouchure and he uses chords a lot /vamping etcâ compromised just intonation might be the right choice.
For precise melodic playing equal tuning willl be better.
Kindest regards, met vriendelijke groeten

> Several years ago, my guitar teacher told be just before my guitar lesson started that his Lee Oskar had gone out of tune and he replaced it with a brand new Special 20 that didn't sound as good.

> I told him there was an easy explanation why his NEW harmonica (Special 20) sounded different than the Lee Oskar: the Oskar was equal temperament and the Special 20 was just intonation -- two different forms of intonation. This guy had a degree with an Englilsh major and guitar performance minor -- so I suspect his understanding of music was slightly higher than the average self-taught guitarist.
