      SEYDEL Blues Session Standard Harmonica (H95371)
Availability:  


Great harmonica for Celtic music.

Diatonic harp with plastic comb and stainless steel covers, available in a wide variety of keys. This harp is altered by the hole 3 blow note being raised by a whole tone, an attribute that is very useful for Irish and Celtic Music. Bending of this note in the normal tuning would be very laborious for fast jigs, but the rest of the harmonica follows standard Richter tuning. Well worth incorporating into your arsenal of harmonicas.

  • Harp is in standard Richter tuning

    As reviewed by Gregory J. Russell on 9/16/2013

    I needed a new Low-E harp as blew a reed on my Hohner plates, so thought I would try this one, as less cost than new plates. I just needed standard Richter tuning but the website said this has an altered tuning (with the missing VI note in the lower octave instead of the V -- in the E harp, this is C# instead of B), so was sort of looking forward to this as often would like this note. The harp delivered though is definitely in standard Richter tuning, and labeled as such -- no big deal as all I really had before anyway. The Seydel website shows that these are available in that altered tuning (called Paddy Richter) and many others as well, but I think the GC website mistakenly thought that they all are in Paddy Richter. Plays very well though, and beautifully in tune -- I think maybe Just Intonation. Comfortable on lips and contoured shape at ends a little more comfortable than my Hohner Blues Harps and Lee Oskars. Takes about the same amount of air and same size as my lowest keyed Lee Oskar (F) and sounds much like them too. No moustache grabs yet. Whole tuning is very slightly sharp as is typical. No problem with bends. Not likely to play a Low-E much in cross harp (B major), but sounds good in slant harp (F# minor Dorian). Comes with a leather sleeve but will prob. be in either my big case or my mouth most of the time. Like it and will probably buy more, as a good deal. Seydel is such an old company, I feel like I am playing with a bit of the past. Additional note -- one of the other Seydel harps at the GC site (noted as Paddy Richter) GC says the 3 blow is raised only a half step, but Paddy Richter is actually a full step up (VI instead of V).
