Seydel De Luxe Chromatic Harmonica

£159.99

3 Keys available

The Seydel De Luxe Chromatic is the entry point to Seydel's chromatic harmonicas and is one of the least expensive German-made chromatics on the market. The basic design of the De Luxe Chromatic is the same as the De Luxe Steel Chromatic, and the reed plates are interchangeable. The main difference is in the reed material; the De Luxe Steel uses stainless steel, which is a feature of many of Seydel's more expensive harmonicas, whilst the standard De Luxe model uses traditional brass reeds. Stainless steel produces a brighter tone and has greater longevity than brass, but many players prefer the feel and sound of brass, and its use in the De Luxe does result in a considerably less expensive harmonica than its big brother. Build quality is as you would expect from the world's oldest harmonica company, and playability and tone are both first rate. An excellent choice of both a first chromatic or a workhorse harmonica for the experienced player. Number of Holes: 12 48 notes Comb: Brown-tinted Acrylic Tuning: Solo-Tuning Available Keys: C, G & Low C Mouthpiece Hole Shape: Square Cover plates: Stainless Steel Reed Plates: 1.00mm, Brass Comes in a hard shell case with Seydel cleaning cloth We also offer the Seydel De Luxe Steel Chromatic here...
