I like my hohner crossover sound but the hole width is "smaller" than my crossover.
I like my seydel session blues hole width (wider).
Does Hohner make a wooden comb harp with holes wider than the crossover?
I'm experimenting with different harps.

I measured them all once.
Crossover is designed to be a marine band with a bamboo comb.
The difference in design dimensions spec is as small as possible.
I can’t quite remember the measurements but I know the rocket has the biggest chamber openings.
Seydel reeds are spaced further apart, which gives them 0.5mm to play with, before considering the tine width

Thanks Superbee. I've seen a couple of vids saying it shouldn't matter too much. Not sure I 100% agree but I'll keep plugging on the crossover. I just like it.

I remember feeling like it made a difference. These days I don’t ever have that feeling and I don’t recall when I stopped thinking about it
