[Harp-L] Low F

When I suddenly wanted a low F recently, I retuned an A harp to F. It's
simpler than, say, tuning a G down a tone ( less reeds to tune) and works
Depends what you want it for,of course.
You lose the bottom blow F and draw G, and at hole ten, gain a blow A and
You only have to retune 12 reeds.
I retuned a standard F to A a while back (to get a high A) and iy dawned on
me the reverse would work just as well.
