Seydel 1847 Classic

piggy, 20.01.2018
After watching videos and comparing other Harmonicas I came to my next purchase. I have a Seydel blues session in C and in G.The sound from the blues session are great and the feel of both harps are good but the feel of the 1847 is smoother.The blues session harps are well made but the holes 2-3 are a touch difficult to bend and I could hear air leaking when drawing.

So on to the 1847 Classic. This is a excellent sounding harp, I cannot imagine a harp that would sound warming or better for that case.

The playability is very good but to bend takes a little getting used to. The stainless steel covers are very smooth and it is comfortable to play.This harp is just fun to play and makes playing enjoyable.

The workmanship is optimal.Seydel makes excellent harps and their attention to detail is superb.

Of course this harp costs a touch more, and I would recommend to anybody beginner or pro regardless to save the money and buy this harp because it is worth it.

There are no negative aspects at the moment and cannot expect any to come.

It is worth it

Harpbrother Marvin, 27.09.2010
So I have been playing diatonic harps for over 30 years and have "consumed" a lot of instruments from various manufacturers. This harp from Seydel is not the first in my assortment and will definitely not be the last.

But to the facts:
The air permeability and therefore the response of the sounds are really optimized here. This makes the bend much easier to practice and there is enough room for playful nuances. The sound pressure is also higher due to the shape of the sound cap than in the case of competition models. Of particular note are also the stainless steel tuners, which are really more robust and wear-resistant than those made of brass.

My conclusion:
Someone who just wants to try playing on a Bluesharp should do so on a cheaper model. For experienced players and lovers of the blues, the purchase of such a harmonica is absolutely worthwhile. Last but not least, Seydel also supplies spare parts for almost everything and provides support in tuning and caring for the instrument.
