Premium instrument with a nice warm sound
Herr Krause, 16.03.2015
The Solist Pro is an excellent bluesharp, which is worth its price in full. It is very airtight, speaks extremely easily in all channels and reacts immediately to all changes in the airflow. That's how it should be. Targeted bendings are easy and precise. In customer reviews to other Seydel models, I have read, that after a short time the sound in the 5th channel hangs. This can happen, of course, if you try to bend the sound in the 5th channel to the devil to get more than half a tone. Sowas does not work with any harp, in any key. Whoever cares about it, he even kills a Seydel. I personally do not like my harps, but when I use it properly, the speech is still excellent in all channels after many months.

The features are standard, but in detail better than many other harps: a wooden body, bolted stainless steel covers, brass reeds and strings are characteristics of many instruments in the price segment up to 60 euros. Seydel harmonicas have comparatively large channel openings, which is not only for inexperienced players a considerable advantage in single-tone play. Who likes to block channels with the tongue, will also be happy. Also, that the body is really effectively sealed with harmless clear lacquer. Swelling is not an issue even with excessive play. The covers are pleasantly slipping and so smooth that the lips always remain safe. Although I find the deck design of the Session Steel an idea better, but also the Solist Pro can be played for hours on end comfortably. A feature that I found stupid, but now for the best solution, is the small leather case. This allows the instrument to be transported perfectly protected in the bag, is easier to keep dry and is always at play temperature. Nice is also the small cleaning cloth.

The sound is even and warm, less pointed than, for example, the "Nautical Expeditionary Chapel Deluxe" from Trossingen. About the sound I will not write so much, because sound is naturally a fairly subjective thing. The Solist Pro is perfectly suitable for blues and all other genres and offers a wide variety of sound possibilities. And she is loud enough.

There are, however, no two opinions when processing. Here it is clear that the instrument was made by hand in the handcraft on the border with Bohemia. Traditionally there is something about instrument building. The wooden carcass body is cleanly ground and high-quality sealed, stimulation plates and lid are carefully deburred, so that no sharp or pointed places endanger mouth and hands. Everything is nice round and smooth. Even the intonation is immaculate. Here, nothing needs to be adjusted or corrected later. The selection of the materials corresponds to the highest quality requirements.
