Hello Alternate Tuning Friends

I have been researching alternate tunings (Layouts) for over 20 years and have tried all possible variations theoretically. (Special scales and multi chords)
Among other things I have a harmonica made with Kniri 221 tuning (16 different chords and 10 different scales)
