Do the manufacturers use the same size harp or cast iron frame on uprights of different height or are they cast to accomodate the different length or model?

Some do some don't.
Charles Walter plates are the same for both the model 1500 & 1520.
And they publish that they are the same.
Some other manufactures use the same plates in different models and sell the taller model for more money. They do not make this common knowledge.
In the case of the Walters the taller model is less money.

Would there be sound benefit in buying a 121cm model over a 115cm if they both had the same size of harp?
