The Seydel Session Antique is a diatonic harp with plastic comb and antique-coated stainless steel covers and brass reeds. It is a smoothly shaped harmonica that is a great and ideal choice for beginners.
In terms of tone and playability, it is identical to the standard Seydel Blues Session Standard harmonica; the sole difference is the cover plate colour, which on the Antique model has a bronze coloured 'antique' finish.
Both the Session Standard and the Session Antique share the same construction as the more expensive Session Steel, with recessed reed plates and a modern cover plate design that extends smoothly to the ends of the harmonica. As a consequence, the Session Steel reed plates will fit the Session Standard and Antique harps, which means that you are able to upgrade to the brighter and longer lasting stainless steel reed plates when the original ones have reached the end of their lifespan

Seydel has been manufacturing harmonicas in Germany since the middle of the 19th century, and is the world's oldest harmonica manufacturer. Its speciality is its durable stainless steel reeds, which significantly outlast traditional brass reeds and provide a distinctive bright sound.
