The SEYDEL SAMPLER Harmonica is a real must have for the ambitious melody-player:
One instrument in two keys and three full octaves available.
The SAMPLER is the ideal instrument for playing popular melodies, Folk-music and Irish Folk and a real new challenge for all lovers of the "Chromatic Blues Sound"! The slider switches between two keys (Ab and Low Eb).
- solo-tuning in the keys of Ab and Low Eb
- three fulll octaves in two keys*, conveniently switchable with the slider or lockable
- half-valving, some important bending notes (Bending: technique for lowering the notes)
A comprehensive >Online-tutorial for the SAMPLER explains the instrument's features in detail. You can download the free pdf-version for printout. The online-version for the tutorial contains a large variety of sound examples and playbacks that show the new playing features available on the new SAMPLER harmonica.
* Pressing the slider does not give the semi-note of the chromatic scale like on chromatic harmonicas. The slider does lower the notes for a perfect forth. Therefore the instrument can be played in two differnt keys but the chromatic scale is not available (without playing bending notes). The SAMPLER is not a tremolo harmonica.
