The harmonica that does all that it says it can do.
John Maxwell, 30.11.2014
I have been using Hohner Chromatic Harmonicas for 60 years, and their lifespan leave a lot to be desired. I found myself requiring to buy a new one frequently, rather than having them repaired. Sticking reeds was always a problem, and in the end, the harmonica can be an expensive instrument over the years.

I decided to try a Seydel Chromatic, thinking it surely must last as long as the Hohner. I chose a 12 hole in C. The quality was excellent. I was surprised by how solidly it felt to handle, and the sound was superb.

Because of this I decided to buy a Seydel Sohne Saxony Orchestra 12 hole, and for the price, it is one of the best Harmonicas that I have ever played. Of all the Harmonicas that I have at the moment, this is the one I play the most.

I can only hope that it outlives the rest of my collection as it has proven to be the best of the whole lot. How long it will last remains to be seen, but so far it has been faultless, and I see no reason for that to change. Would I buy another one? Certainly. For what it costs, I cannot see anything to beat it.

My Favourite
Rex H., 06.12.2014
This is the harmonica that is always on my belt, it has the range of a 14 holer and the size of a 12. It is very responsive and very loud, while permitting sensitive tone control and feeling. The metal comb makes it feel really solid and robust. I have had it for over four years and the only problem I have had is a couple of valves came off, but a dab of clear general purpose glue soon fixed them.

Just buy one
Dave396, 24.07.2015
I've had two chromatic harmonicas in the past both hohner, a chromonica 260 which I found hard to play and a chrometta 10 which I love the sound of but the holes on the mouthpiece are quite large. The Seydel Saxony Orchestra is an amazing instrument, it plays beautifully straight out of the box and the sound is beautiful too, the mouthpiece is well designed and easy to play. I don't think you will find a nicer Instrument at any price. Buy it you won't be disappointed

SEYDEL SAXONY "C Orchestra" Qualität mit Profi -Status....
Gerd N., 27.05.2013
Liebe Mundharmonika - Freunde,

Die Bewertung eines Instruments ist natürlich eine sehr subjektive Angelegenheit.
Jeder Musiker hat seine sehr eigenen Vorstellungen von Sound, Ansprechverhalten, Design und vielen anderen Aspekten, die ein Musikinstrument verkörpert.
Jeder hat seine individuellen Ansprüche, die nicht zuletzt auch vom Können eines Musikers abhängen..... Nun denn ....

Meine SAXONY "C Orchestra" lässt für mich keine Wünsche offen.
Die Verarbeitung ist sehr solide und von hoher Qualität. Nichts wird hier dem Zufall überlassen. Jedes Detail ist durchdacht und in jeder Hinsicht ausgereift.
Stimmplatten, Stimmzungen, Schieberpaket und Ventilierung genügen höchsten Ansprüchen....

Der Klang bzw. Sound ist sehr durchsetzungsstark und vollkommen direkt.
Offen gespielt, ist der Sound sehr obertonreich, also sehr brilliant. Für klassische Stücke sehr geeignet. Spielt man die SAXONY abgedeckt, wird der Klang sehr warm und smart. Das Instrument reagiert auf jede Art von Artikulation und Mundraumstellung sehr differenziert und direkt und ist entsprechend flexibel.
Nahezu jede Stilart kann bedient werden...
Auch das Anbenden von Zieh und Blastönen ist gleichermaßen problemlos.

Alles in Allem ist die SAXONY ein hervorragendes Instrument welches professionellen Ansprüchen vollauf gerecht wird.

Der Preis ist gemessen an der Qualität, und auch im Vergleich zu anderen Herstellern als günstig anzusehen. Vergleichbare Instrumente kosten bei
anderen Herstellern deutlich mehr.

Als ambitionierter Musiker ist man mit diesem Instrument wie auch mit den anderen SAXONY Modellen auf der sicheren Seite.

Noch eine Anmerkung zum SEYDEL Service: Absolut freudlich und zuvorkommend.
Habe beste Erfahrungen gemacht....

Beste Grüße,

PS. Die neue 16 er SAXONY kommt demnächst auf den Markt. Insiderinfo....
