Product Description

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.

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 Symphony ACRYL Chromatic Harmonica

Seydel Symphony ACRYL Chromatic Harmonica

£634.99
The Seydel Symphony ACRYL Grand Chromatic is a professional chromatic harmonica with uniquely-inspired technical developments that set new standards in terms of sound, airtightness, playability, and reliability.   The high-quality, contemporary ergonomic design guarantees longevity and maximum playing comfort. The Seydel Symphony ACRYL Grand Chromatic has a transparent-green acrylic body and half moon-shaped mouthpiece. Tonal range of four full octaves and stainless steel reeds The recessed reedplates (1mm) are precision cut from anti-corrosive German silver. Hand-tuning of the 64 stainless-steel reeds, tight tolerances, and newly developed Seydel valves (with less adhesive than conventional valves) create an instrument with precise tone control and a rich sound with a tonal range of four full octaves. The variant 'ACRYL' has a translucent-green colored acrylic comb. Both this and the alloy comb on the ALU model are CNC-milled and perfectly balanced. The recessed reed plates are mounted with stainless steel screws and screwed on individually. Solid, die-cast, coated aluminium cover plates are screwed on individually providing a design that is widely-opened at the back for a balanced feel and dynamic, full, warm sound projection in all four octaves. The precisely-fit, stable slider, made from 1mm German Silver, has an ergonomically convex-shaped, silver coated slider button with soft surface for the finger. Each slider is individually lapped together with the mouthpiece and works therefore very silently and is extremely airtight. It can be serviced very easy by unscrewing only one single screw on the back of the comb and pulling the slider out for easy cleaning. The comb accommodates the provided carrying strap, made from genuine leather and with a SEYDEL embossing, to securely harness the instrument. It can be attached either on the right or the left side of the Seydel Symphony Grand Chromatic. The Seydel Symphony ACRYL has a half moon-shaped mouthpiece. Both variants are silver-coated and screwed on from the backside of the comb to provide optimal playing comfort with no screw heads on the outer surface of the mouthpiece for better haptic properties. The SYMPHONY Grand Chromatic offers an inimitable sound and a tonal range of four full octaves (C3-C7) and is suitable for many musical genres ranging from classical music to jazz. The very airtight Seydel Symphony offers un-imagined possibilities of expression and marks a new dimension in manufacturing harmonicas.  ...
