The East Top T008K I tried recently is a nice harp, but the dealbreaker is the Equal Temperament, which just is too rough for me. Are there any harps in Modern Compromise-like temperaments from Chinese manufacturers like East Top, Kongsheng, etc?

Best wishes to all for a safe Thanksgiving!

The Manji has the thirds flattened, and the Fabulous comes in Just.
Also, it's not real hard to adjust your harmonicas into any intonation you like--I have fallen for what iStroboSoft calls Just, but is probably compromise of some sort--at least, that's what it seems like.

The new DaBell Contender model has compromised tuning.

I don't know if they are offering it yet but Wang Ecki said Kongsheng was planning on offering tunings to customers request. I know things got kind of crazy after that though with what's going on in the world, but that's their plan. I really like their Solist model.
