If they gave out the tuning for each of the reeds, there would probably be warranty calls from anyone with a tuner, ya got to figure that after bouncing around the globe a harp doesn't reach you in the same condition as when it left the factory.
I found tuning offsets detailed on Seydel website Info is out there if you look. Pat missin site is good but you have to dig around and download a zip file More than once Ive given you a link to a chart with hohner info, annotated by Steve baker who devised the crossover tuning
The basis of tuning i.e. the frequency which = ‘0’ can be at issue.
‘Officially’ the standard is 440 hz for A4 That’s the A in blow 4 of an A harp
However, you’ll see that Baker states that 0 = 443 for his crossover tuning, and i have seen many crossovers which appear to be even brighter than this
I generally use 442 or 443 when i tune. Very rarely my client will have a preference.
I’d say if you would like some broader perspective about tuning it might be a good idea to take these questions to the main forum page rather than the beginners forum. You’ll have a much better chance of initiating a discussion among more participants there
