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

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!

Suzuki Promaster Harmonica

£51.99

14 Keys available

24The Suzuki Promaster harmonica (MR350) is one of our most popular upper end diatonics, and is part of the professional range by Suzuki Music. It features ergonomically designed, polished stainless steel reed covers, which provide supreme playing comfort. The comb is precision milled from billet aluminium, then given a satin anodised finish for durability and ease of playing. This provides it with a similar tone to other harmonicas which feature the same comb construction, such as the Seydel Noble, plus outstanding resistance to warping and temperature and humidity related swelling, which can afflict many wooden combs.  Phosphor bronze reed plates, which are a signature of most Japanese-made Suzuki harps, produce the rich tones and clarity so sought after by professional players, and also offer great durability and lifespan. As you'd expect from a Suzuki, airtightness is first class, and the attention to detail in its construction is class-leading. Harpists who try a ProMaster often find that it rapidly becomes their 'go-to' instrument for all styles of music, such is its ease of playing and responsiveness. All ProMasters come with a hard shell, soft lined case to keep your harp in optimum condition. If you want an all round harmonica that can fit with most styles of music, has a great tone and will require minimal maintenance then the ProMaster is definitely one to try! The Suzuki ProMaster is available in all of the 12 standard major keys, plus low F and high G. A valved version of the ProMaster, which enables bending on the blow cycle as well as the draw is also available here.   Warning: It has come to our attention that counterfeit Suzuki Harmonicas are being offered for sale through overseas sellers. Please do not fall victim to these illegal sellers of Suzuki Harmonicas. All our Suzuki range have been purchased directly from the official Suzuki distributors. ... Read more

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
