  • 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

  •  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
  • Keys: G to F#

    I have played most if not all professional harmonicas on the market, and this is in my opinion the best. The stainless steel reeds obviously last longer than brass and phosphor bronze, but they also play and sound the best. The bends are easy, the tuning is a beautiful compromised tuning, and the chords and single notes sound perfect. The dark maple wood comb has a great resonance, and the lacquering the smooth and lovely. The back of the harp is wide open for a full sound, and I personally love the closed side vents, creating a warmer, fuller sound.

    The 1847 Classic is expensive at £60 for just one harp, basically a day’s wage for me, but if you can afford to treat yourself, it’s so worth it. Hell, since the stainless reeds last 4-5 times longer than brass reeds, you’re not really spending £60 on one harp. You’re actually buying 4-5 harps in one, meaning you’re only spending £15-£12 per harp, which is an amazing deal.

    Treat yourself.
