Difference between standard tuned and Paddy richter tuned ?
The Polar Paddy richter tuned harmonica uses the 3 blow as a new note instead of repeating the 2 draw. So you don’t have to bend the 3 draw anymore to get an A on a C harmonica. That gives you more flexibility and smoother runs to play standard major melodies in the key of your harmonica.

Difference between Super Country tuning and Paddy Richter ?

The Paddy richter is helping you play major in the same key as the harmonica (C on a C).
And uses the blow chord (456) as the main reference point.

The Super Country is helping you play major starting on hole 2 draw, a 5th above the key of the harmonica (G major on a C harmonica) and uses the draw chord (234) as your starting point.
