OVERVIEW

Solo-tuned diatonic with corrosion-free stainless steel reeds, ergonomic covers and carmine red plastic comb.

The ORCHESTRA S Session Steel Harmonica is a 10-hole, solo-tuned harmonica (orchestra-tuning). As with the chromatic harmonica, all notes from the major scale are available throughout a two-and-a-half octave range.

The ORCHESTRA S offers even more
Typically, the root note is found in hole 1-blow. The ORCHESTRA S places the root note at hole 3-blow, and half of the lower octave is added to holes 1 and 2. Since many players miss some of the notes on the standard Richter-tuned diatonic harmonica in the lower register the ORCHESTRA S allows them to hit the missing notes without having to apply a bending technique. The root note of the diatonic major scale is marked on the coverplate - it starts in 3 blow.

This makes the ORCHESTRA S an ideal soloing instrument; the ten-hole design makes the Orchestra-S compact enough to take your melodies anywhere.

The note layout is basically the same as that of a chromatic harmonica, making the ORCHESTRA S a great starting harmonica for learning to play a chromatic. The compact size combined with SEYDEL's durability makes the ORCHESTRA S a good choice for musical education in schools.

The ORCHESTRA S opens new possibilities to blues harmonica players by making it easy to play minor pieces (3rd position) with a sound similar to solos played on a chromatic, thanks to the solo-tuning. They will also appreciate the extended major scale in the lower register. The root note of the dominant chord is available in the hole 1-draw, making it similar to playing in 2nd position on a standard Richter-tuned harmonica.

Seasoned blues players will find all the notes of the blues scale through natural notes and bent notes, bringing soul and color to their blues improvisation.

FEATURES
  • Solo-tuning in a ten-hole, compact harmonica
  • Expanded tonal range in the lower register (Orchestra tuning)
  • Stainless-steel reeds, coverplates, and screws combined for unparalleled durability (outlasting brass-reed models by up to five-times)
  • Anti-corrosive, German-silver reedplates
  • Lip-friendly, translucent carmine red plastic comb (ABS) with recessed reedplates
  • Protective, full-grain leather pouch included

        My first Seydel- I'll be investing in more! I haven't had this thing a day and I'm enchanted. Fit and finish is exquisite; tone warm, deep, and wonderful. Haven't amped it yet but looking forward to the experience- I expect a big, honky blues sound!
