Product Description

The Seydel 1847 classic harmonica was the first mass-produced Richter diatonic harmonica with stainless steel reeds. The 1847 classic is the result of Seydel's 160-year of experience in manufacturing high-quality harmonicas. This Seydel blues harp fits all the traditional demands as well as being impressively innovative.

This model is the Standard Richter tuning, however if you wish to get the Paddy Richter tuning, then please contact us

  • Full and loud, overtone-rich sound and extremely fast tone-response due to stainless steel reeds
  • Extremely durable and even with heavy duty playing - stainless steel reeds and stainless steel rivets
  • Less air-loss due to fine-cut reed plates - optimised flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reed plate
  •  Beard and lip friendly - cover plates with rounded edges without any cuts at the mouthpiece and ergonomic built hole openings and rounded dividers
  • The overtone-rich sound can spread out undampened - covers made of extra strong stainless steel sheet (0.4mm), opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore a good stability and rounded edges
  • moisture proof, swelling free maple comb, sealed with multiple layers of food safe finish
  • Tuning: Standard Richter - other tunings available on request, including Paddy Richter, Wilde Rock and EDharmonica.
  • Keys: G to F# plus low tunings
