Any suggestions on gapping? I can play all my bends and overblows, but I haven't mastered the gapping on that hole yet. Thanks!

Try blow reed as closer to plate as possible, while make draw reed a bit wider (still not too wide!). Anyway this bend is very unsimple to master, I can control itok (not good)only at harps lower than A.
When I set-up a beta-harp I make sure the reeds are almost flat on hole 10..there's almost no visible curve and the gaps are extremely low..
I also do a little tip-scooping on hole 10 draw. I test 10 draw with a powerful UH attack while breathing in ...the reed must still respond quickly while doing this.
I'm glad you asked this question, Fugazzi, or I was going to have to. And I love the fact that your profile picture gives the subtle suggestion that you're screaming every post that you write.
I wonder why the 10-hole is so darn difficult to overdraw... Would set up/gapping help me solve my 10-hole overdraw woes? The 10-hole blow is just a tricky little monster all the way around. You really have to have control while wailing on it or you see the audience cringing haha. Good luck getting yours set up, man!
10 overdraw seems easier for me, than good control over halftone bend...
