Seydel 1847 Classic HarmonicaThe Seydel 1847 classic harmonica was the first mass-produced Richter diatonic harmonica with stainless steel reeds. The 1847 classic is the result of Seydel’s 160-year of experience in manufacturing high-quality harmonicas. This Seydel blues harp fits all the traditional demands as well as being impressively innovative.

Here is some features at a glance:

  • Full and loud, overtone-rich sound and extremely fast tone-response due to stainless steel reeds
  • Extremely durable and even with heavy duty playing – stainless steel reeds and stainless steel rivets
  • Less air-loss due to fine-cut reed plates – optimised flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reed plate
  •  Beard and lip friendly – cover plates with rounded edges without any cuts at the mouthpiece and ergonomic built hole openings and rounded dividers
  • The overtone-rich sound can spread out undampened – covers made of extra strong stainless steel sheet (0.4mm), opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore a good stability and rounded edges
  • moisture proof, swelling free maple comb, sealed with multiple layers of food safe finish
  • Tuning: Standard Richter – other tunings available on request, including Paddy Richter, Wilde Rock and EDharmonica.
  • Keys: G to F# plus low tunings
