There may also be some effect from the reed material. I used to play a
standard Honer Chromonica 64 and once a year played with a jazz/pop
band for a public gig. And once a year had to replaced one or two
reeds which hardened during the gig and went way out of tune. One even
cracked in half.
I was persuaded to invest in a Chromonica made specially for Toots
Thielemans, as the reeds were of different material and more robust.
It does also seem slightly easier to bend (though nothing like my
Marine Band which I reckon you could play a whole octave on one reed).
Someone more experienced than I may like to comment.
