Product Description

The Seydel Session Steel harmonica is the upgrade to Seydel's successful Session model, and it comes presented with a bold new look and superior technical reliability, excellent playability and a fantastic sound. This is a blues harmonica with corrosion-free stainless steel reeds, ergonomic covers and plastic comb.

This is the Powerdraw tuned Session Steel, however you can also get it in Paddy Richter, PowerBender, Melodic Maker, Circular/Melody King, Country, Natural Minor and Harmonic Minor. If you would like any of the other tunings please contact us. We also offer custom tuning such as equal temperament on special order.

PowerDraw tuning is easy to learn because:

  • The bulk of the harp (holes 1-6) stays exactly the same, so there is no need to re-learn anything in that meat and potatoes range you’re so accustomed to.
  • The breathing pattern of holes 1-6 (blow reed low, draw reed high in each hole)is retained all the way up to hole 10 on the PowerDraw. This gives the top octave an instant feeling of familiarity to anyone who tries it, because the techniques and riffs that work so well lower down work up there too .
  • Simplified Technique: There are no blow bends and no overdraws needed in the PowerDraw tuning. Two of the most important ‘blue’ notes in 2nd position (the flat third, which was overblow 6) and the flat fifth (overdraw 7) are now simple draw bends on holes 7 and 8.
  • Every draw note bends from hole 6-10, soulful and easy! In un-valved setup every hole overblows, and the upper octave overblows are much easier than the overdraws necessary in Richter tuning.
  • PowerDraw works well with the chordal octave-playing approach of tongue blockers. The notes in the top octave are similar to Richter, but the intervals are different. Because the chord splits sound nice and in-key, it is easy to adapt to.
  • The PowerDraw works great in other positions too, especially Third (nice useful bends in the top octave), Fifth (good expression in the top end), Second Position Minor (no need to overblow to get the flat 3rd ), Eleventh and Twelfth (great expression in the top octave).

If you feel familiar with playing in holes 1-6 on Richter diatonic already (or you play our BIG SIX model), the PowerDraw is a good choice for you!

  • Ergonomic cover plates made of stainless steel, completely rounded at the mouthpiece
  • ABS comb with recessed German Silver reed plates
  • Rivets and screws made of stainless steel
  • Lips and beard-friendly design
  • Minimal air consumption achieved by fine-cut reed plates, optimised flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reed plate
  • Stainless steel reeds provide the best clear and full sound and response of the 1847 models
  • Up to 5 times longer playing life compared to models with brass reeds
  • Comes with a genuine leather pouch
  • Tuning: PowerDraw

The Seydel Session Steel PowerBender harmonica is the upgrade to Seydel's successful Session model, and it comes presented with a bold new look and superior technical reliability, excellent playability and a fantastic sound. This is a blues harmonica with corrosion-free stainless steel reeds, ergonomic covers and plastic comb.

If you would like any of the other tunings please contact us. We also offer custom tuning such as equal temperament on special order. The PowerBender tuning builds on the best parts of the traditional Richter Tuning, while altering the scale to make the real juicy and important notes much easier to obtain throughout the whole three octave range. Same familiar breathing pattern in the upper-middle registers. All draw notes bend everywhere, holes 1-10! On the un-valved version you can overblow every hole 1-10, for full chromatic playing. Overdraws and blow bends are no longer possible or needed on a PowerBender - they are replaced with simple draw bends. Top octave easy to play (intuitive) as many familiar phrasings can be adopted from the bottom octaves Easy to play in the common positions: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th, and 12th Like all Session Steels, the PowerBender model features: Ergonomic cover plates made of stainless steel, completely rounded at the mouthpiece ABS comb with recessed German Silver reed plates Rivets and screws made of stainless steel Lips and beard-friendly design Minimal air consumption achieved by fine-cut reed plates, optimised flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reed plate Stainless steel reeds provide the best clear and full sound and response of the 1847 models Up to 5 times longer playing life compared to models with brass reeds Comes with a genuine leather pouch Tuning: PowerBender ...

Hohner Rocket 5 Pack

£184.99
- C, G, A, D and Bb Hohner Rocket 5 Pack - C, G, A, D and Bb - Rock is many things – quiet is not one of them. For a harmonica to not be lost between squealing guitars and heavy drums, it has to be loud too. Which is why rock harpist Jimmie Bones relies on the power of the HOHNER Rocket. No other harmonica is this loud, while being this comfortable at the same time. Get ready to be blasted through rock, pop, jazz, and country with this incredibly powerful harp for advanced players. In terms of sound and feel, the Rocket is akin to a louder Special 20, with which it shares many of its features, such as the ABS comb and recessed reed plates. In fact, many players who prefer to the now discontinued Marine Band Series Special 20, prefer the Rocket and the Rocket Amp to the Progressive Series Special 20. This 5 pack of Rocket harmonicas includes the most popular keys and represents a significant discount over buying them individually. It also comes with a neoprene soft case that can carry up to 7 harmonicas. Optimized cover plates and larger channel openings Wide open cover plates with side vents and larger channel openings are specifically designed to generate a loud, powerful sound. Comfortable comb design The first serial production harmonica with rounded comb sides, edges, and corners for maximum comfort. Recessed reed plate The reed plates are recessed for a more comfortable mouthpiece... Read more
