Kniri 221 Alternate Tunings

I've been looking for alternate tunings for harmonicas and diatonic accordions for over 20 years. 
I then tried out my ideas.
I published the ideas on facebook and harmonica forums. You can also watch my videos on YouTube.
The Seydel company  made the specially tuned harmonicas for me. 
You can specify your own tone scale using the harp configurator


I don't sell harmonicas and accordions,
but I would like to make my ideas available to anyone who is interested !

Exemple:

"KNIRI 221" tuning in the circle of 4ths for harmonica and accordion
