      OVERVIEW

      Professional quality chromatic.

      The Origin of Sound - the SAXONY CHROMATIC - the first serial-produced chromatic harmonica with stainless steel reeds!
      The SAXONY CHROMATIC is a professional chromatic harmonica with unique playing features. The instrument benefits from the stainless steel reeds well known from the 1847 Blues harmonicas and the timeless precision manufacturing of the Renaissance chromatic harmonica. It is available in G or C and also available in different finishes.

      ¢ Full, loud sound and fast tone response due to the stainless steel reeds: durable and stable in pitch even with heavy duty playing
      Reliable valving - new windsaver material
      ¢ Less air-loss due to optimized reed plates made of German Silver - optimized flatness and extremely small tolerances between reeds and reed plate slots
      ¢ New mouthpiece with round openings
      ¢ Improved slider package design - optimized for air-tightness and comfortable action
      ¢ New cover plate surface, matt-chromed - comfortable on the lips and glides easily during playing
      ¢ Cover plates opened wide at the back and crimped to allow the overtone-rich sound to spread out unhindered (also with >shiny stainless steel coverplates)
      ¢ High precision manufactured aluminium comb - optimized for ideal tone-response, with design coating in metallic look
      All components were rethought and improved - the result is the SAXONY CHROMATIC - a master's instrument that fits professional demands. This harmonica opens a new dimension of SEYDEL's long tradition of making quality harmonicas. Precision, made in Klingenthal / SAXONY / Germany.


      Chromatic opens a whole new world. Order today.

          Comments about SEYDEL Chromatic SAXONY Harmonica:

          This is a great chromatic harmonica! Compared to the Hohner Super Chromonica 270 that I have played for years, (on my second one) the Seydel plays much easier, sounds better, all the valves work, (though they can be heard closing in the low range which is unavoidable), it is much more comfortable on the mouth, and the composite probably will not crack like the wood on the Hohner did. This is a refined instrument and is not designed to be over blown and to have note bending like on diatonic harmonicas. I got it in orchestra tuning in the key of C. So G, G#, A, A#, B, (B#) C, C# are added below Low C. These same notes are subtracted from the top register. I really like this harmonica and will probably buy another Seydel in the near future.

            I tried about four other brands before this and found most of them with at least four holes plugged. The Seydel Saxony has been exceptional, except that it seems to need warming up before playing.

                This instrument is airtight and sounds great. I've never been disappointed with Seydel. The windsavers actually work. I had bought a new Super 64X and the tone is inconsistent through the octaves, the windsaver clicking makes it pointless to play. I had given up on chromatics until I realized with a chromatic in G playing with the button pushed in gives you E flat major in 2nd position (a great saxophone key). I thought I would take the risk and am happy I did.

                Comments about SEYDEL Chromatic SAXONY Harmonica:

                The Saxony Orchestra has great sound, is airtight, plays really well, and has a nicely designed mouthpiece. It may require reed gap adjustment, but that's not difficult. The design is interesting and works well, but because of the four piece mouthpiece/slide assembly it does take a little while to disassemble and re-assemble for cleaning. However, I find that it doesn't require that kind of maintenance as often as some other brand chromatics. I find the orchestra tuning useful - and a bit warmer sounding than the standard C tuning option.

                I have to say that right out of the box , the feel the sound and the ease of the effortless response sums this instrument up and without hesitation I would highly recommend this to anybody thinking of purchasing a precision harmonica. Although I consider myself a newbie to playing harmonica I wanted a good dependable instrument and not just anything to use so I could get the right sound and playing experience and this certainly fills the bill.
