A family of new modded-Richter tunings

Anything apart from the two mainstream default harmonicas (Solo-tuned fully-valved chromatic, and un-valved Richter 10-hole diatonic). Alternate tunings, different construction, new functionality, interesting old designs, wishful-thinking... whatever!

To add a bit of complexity to the tuning above, we can raise the 5 blow by three semitones.

By the way, I see that there is a continuous Gmin chord from 3 to 10 in the draw layer. Please feel free to suggest ways that, within this tuning, that strip of Gmin harmony could be useful.

The tuning shown here viewtopic.php?f=9&t=212&start=80#p2056 (above) has a repeating pattern in holes 5-7 and 8-10. We can therefore delete holes 8-10, resulting in a loss of tonal range but no loss in function.

This 7-hole tuning is too large for a Seydel Big Six. But it would be perfect in a Kongsheng Baby Fat.
