Seydel 1847 Classic 10-Hole Diatonic Harmonica
Hand Made in Germany
The 1847 is the result of Seydel’s 160-year of experience in manufacturing high-quality harmonicas. The first serial-produced Richter-diatonic harmonica with stainless steel reeds. The 1847, is a harmonica that impresses from innovation but nevertheless fits all traditional demands – a master’s instrument for maximum ambitions.
This harmonica is full and loud with overtone-rich sound and extremely fast tone-response due to stainless steel reeds. It has very long durability even with heavy duty playing due to the stainless steel reeds and stainless steel rivets. There is less air-loss due to fine-cut reedplates with optimized flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reedplate. It is beard and lip-friendly with rounded edge coverplates without any cuts at the mouthpiece and ergonomic built hole-openings and rounded dividers.
The overtone-rich sound can spread out undampened due to the covers made of extra strong stainless steel sheet (0.4mm) and opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore has good stability and rounded edges. It is also moisture-proof, swelling-free maple-comb, sealed with multiple layers of food-safe finish.
