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.

Just buy one

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

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.
