The Seydel Sailor Steel Tremolo is the first traditionally-shaped tremolo harmonica with stainless steel reeds. The Seydel Sailor Steel Tremolo is a traditionally built diatonic tremolo-harmonica has a divided plastic comb: four holes in a square correspond to one draw and one blow note.
If a single note is played two reeds that are tuned a little bit different start to operate together. As a result the floating tremolo sound is produced that has grown into a typical stylistic element of many different kinds of folk music on the harmonica.
The Seydel Sailor Steel Tremolo harmonica is well suited for playing melodies or chord accompaniment. If played with the “tongue blocking” technique both can be done simultaneously and then the full and rich sound of the Seydel Sailor Steel is reminiscent of a big styrian accordion.
