I use harps hard. Four nights a week. The high notes blow bend with less effort. I bought a low tuned F to try because I could no longer find Special 20s tuned low. I really liked it so I bought a C and a D, my most used harps, and I love them. I have four Seydels altogether now. I am not sure how a key of G would be for me because I really blow a G hard and usually use a Lee Oskar. That is the only key I like Oskars. I have a Seydel with a wood comb that I really don't care for. But that is probably just personal preference. I am won over to this harp though.

I have Seydel Session harmonicas in Low C (steel), Low D (brass), Low E (steel), Low F (Steel) and now this A (brass). I had a Low D (steel) in which a reed went flat prematurely. The Low D (brass) has been very good so far. I was a little disappointed with the A in brass: it takes a good bit of breath to play, especially the draw 3, even after adjusting the reed gaps. I will try putting the A reed plates in my old Low D Session steel comb (has smaller holes) and see if that helps. I also have Special 20s in C, A and G. They have held up very well, even up to a year of steady use. The Seydel brass A is not as sweet and easy to play as the Special 20 A. I was surprised the difference is so noticeable. The Seydel Session A with brass reeds has much larger holes than the Sp20 and the Seydel Session Steels. I have also tried Lee Oskar in Low F, but it was tuned too sharp and a reed blew out too soon. Having now played harmonica about a year and half, these are my conclusions so far: stick with German made harmonicas; avoid Japanese makes; get Special 20s in standard keys; and get Seydel Session Steels in low keys. Hopefully, this prescription will maximize your enjoyment and minimize waste of money.

      I have played harp over 35 years, and have had good luck with some seydels,notably the blues session steel with the orange combs. However these 2 blues session harps were stiff and unresponsive, even after opening them up and plinging the reeds. That apart, my service with Musicians friend is always prompt and their prices are always fair

          I have a lot of different brand harps and like to have a few in the same key as different tunes sound better with different brands this one sounds nice very happy so far,,And i hope it keeps sounding good over the journey thumbs up

              Nice, comparable to good Hohners, the plastic comb is a plus. There is NO benefit from wooden combs, like solid body guitars or the metal that horns are made of there is no affect on tone and plastic does not swell. I include this information sort the thinkers from the non thinkers. I would also say these feel a bit higher quality than Hohners or Oskars while sounding and playing about the same. Harmonicas are always a crapshoot out of the box and any one harp can be better or worse than the next one unfortunaly.

                Since I can no longer find replacement plates for my Special 20 low D harps, I decided to try another Seydel, even though the bronze reed model and the steel reed model had "blown out" on me. I am taking special care to break this in gently!

                  Very tight, easy to bend, loud. Feels good in your hand. Have been playing Suzuki's this harp blows them away.

                  I like the design and feel, but the volume isn't there. I'll probably buy another key just to make sure it isn't that individual harmonica

                        I've been playing harp on and off for decades, and have played all of the major brands at various price points. I've read so much about
                        Seydel that I thought I'd give them a try. Maybe my mistake was selecting their lowest-priced harp, but this instrument is a big disappointment. The chrome covers have jagged edges that pull at my lips. The holes are too large and closely spaced, making it difficult to avoid blowing two holes at once. The key designation is a flimsy plastic sticker that peels off (or could fall off) easily. Most disappointing is that the reeds are VERY stiff. The 1 hole is the only one that bends easily on the draw... all the rest require huge effort, and some don't bend at all. Forget overblowing, not going to happen. The tone is nice enough, but overall I'm not impressed. At this price point, Lee Oskar or Bushman are vastly superior in every way.

                        Somewhat disappointing for a Seydel

                        I have Seydel Session harmonicas in Low C (steel), Low D (brass), Low E (steel), Low F (Steel) and now this A (brass). I had a Low D (steel) in which a reed went flat prematurely. The Low D (brass) has been very good so far. I was a little disappointed with the A in brass: it takes a good bit of breath to play, especially the draw 3, even after adjusting the reed gaps. I will try putting the A reed plates in my old Low D Session steel comb (has smaller holes) and see if that helps. I also have Special 20s in C, A and G. They have held up very well, even up to a year of steady use. The Seydel brass A is not as sweet and easy to play as the Special 20 A. I was surprised the difference is so noticeable. The Seydel Session A with brass reeds has much larger holes than the Sp20 and the Seydel Session Steels. I have also tried Lee Oskar in Low F, but it was tuned too sharp and a reed blew out too soon. Having now played harmonica about a year and half, these are my conclusions so far: stick with German made harmonicas; avoid Japanese makes; get Special 20s in standard keys; and get Seydel Session Steels in low keys. Hopefully, this prescription will maximize your enjoyment and minimize waste of money.
