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
  • Please note that the low tunings come in Bold Body format as standard. To get the desired sound out of the low-tuned models the notes need more space. The resonance chamber, increased by the 20% thicker comb (sealed walnut) and the higher cover plates of the new 1847 Low models, help to produce a fatter and louder sound. Special valves ensure very good airtightness even in the extremely low range.

Excellent customer service! My recent purchase required a couple of alterations in details and they were very responsive about it. Despite the changes in the order, the item actually arrived earlier than expected!

Seydel Session Steel Harmonica - Circular Tuning

£54.99

12 Keys available

Circular tuning variant: all notes of the scale are arranged "logically" and can be reached by alternately blowing and drawing. Therefore it is possible to play up to 12 different chords. For the same reason, it is not so easy to clearly assign the key in which the harp is labeled in. Please note: hole #1 blow is the lowest note and designates the key of the harp here, although the playable major scale is 5 semitones (or a fourth) higher than the label on the instrument indicates. Depending on which root note you choose, you can very easily play melodies in the eight different 'church keys' = modes (modal scales). This tuning is sometimes also called "Spiral" or "Melody King". The SESSION STEEL is the upgrade to our successful SESSION model is presented with a bold new look and superior technical reliability, excellent playability and a fantastic sound.      ... Read more

The Seydel Favorite can hold its own with other top end harmonicas. It has a translucent anodised aluminium comb and stainless steel covers. Part of the Seydel Blues Series. The Favorite shares some of the features of Seydel's other diatonic harmonicas: the alloy comb material of the 1847 Noble, the brass reeds of the Session and the cover plates and general design of the Session Steel. This provides it with a deep but bright sound, reminiscent of the Noble, but with the slightly more traditional tone of brass reeds. As the Favorite shares the basic design of the Session Steel, the reed plates can be changed at a later date to ones with stainless steel reeds, should this be desired.
