Fender Blues Deville Harmonica
The Fender Blues Deville Harmonica is Fender’s top line diatonic, featuring phosphor bronze reeds, a durable ABS comb and a cool matte black and gold finish, not dissimilar to Hohner’s Pro Harp. Build quality and tone are excellent, and bending is easy with the phosphor bronze reeds.
The Fender Blues Deville Harmonica features an ABS comb, which is extremely resistant to moisture and swelling and can be easily cleaned. Reeds are phospor bronze – usually found only on Suzuki harmonicas. These give a rich, bright tone, with exceptional durability. Some players have reported lifespans significantly greater than traditional bronze reeds.
Available in a range of 7 standard major keys: C, D, E, F, G, A and Bb.
Also available as a 7 harp set, which is priced at a level that is significantly cheaper than buying all 7 keys individually
This diatonic 10-hole harmonica offers the classic sound and long-lasting reliability of any genuine Fender instrument.
Players who are looking for an entry level diatonic should check out the Fender Blues Deluxe, which features replaceable brass reeds, a durable ABC comb, and cool retro looks at a great price point.
Fender Musical Instrument Corp can trace it origins to Fender Radio Service, which repaired and maintained PA systems and radio equipment in the late 1930s and 1940s. Experiments with the lap steel guitar in the 1940s led to them becoming Fender Instruments, and producing one of the earliest solid body electric guitars – the Telecaster. This led to the development of their most famous guitar – the Stratocaster – which helped to shape popular music throughout the 1960s and beyond.
Harmonicas are a relatively recent product line from Fender, but the their experience in instrument design and manufacturing has allowed them to hit the ground running with their harmonicas and related equipment – The Blues Deville really is an excellent harp that’s worthy of the Fender name.
