Seydel Chromatic De LuxePublished on 11/22/07 at 10:58

I have the chromatic harmonica for 2 months. I bought it to complement my other two color (Hohner Super Chromonica and Mellow Tone) to more easily clean a harmonica without having to clean right away (I'm playing in tongue-blocking, the process gets a lot of saliva).

I wanted to try something other than the Hohner Chromonica and derivatives (I like a lot) and I hesitated for a time between that and a Hohner CX12. I preferred the adventure of trying a new brand (oldest qu'Hohner but little known as it is located in the former GDR) to try to find a link between the Super Chromonica (heat) and Mellow Tone (brightness).

I have the chromatic harmonica for 2 months. I bought it to complement my other two color (Hohner Super Chromonica and Mellow Tone) to more easily clean a harmonica without having to clean right away (I'm playing in tongue-blocking, the process gets a lot of saliva).

I wanted to try something other than the Hohner Chromonica and derivatives (I like a lot) and I hesitated for a time between that and a Hohner CX12. I preferred the adventure of trying a new brand (oldest qu'Hohner but little known as it is located in the former GDR) to try to find a link between the Super Chromonica (heat) and Mellow Tone (brightness).

Features:
- Metal Hoods
- Slatted wood (pear)
- Plates and reeds covered maillechord riveted, all reeds are valved (rare)
- The harmonica comes in a real case with a sleek and microfiber cleaning cloth.

Sound: a bit acidic, in line with Hering. Interesting to amplify and to decide in a group. Over time, we gain organicity but it remains unbeaten Super Chromonica. The reeds react quickly enough and the accuracy is excellent for a non-regulated. The arrangement of the reed is the same type as that of Hohner, posing a risk of latency in a quick game. Is extremely rare: the answer is uniform over the entire range of the instrument: there is almost no need to adapt your life to the octave in which we play.

Comfort: it is very close to Hohner with a mass less. It retains a shallow estuary (disadvantage compared to Hering) with square holes not quite the same spacing as in Hohner. The mechanism is remarkably flexible when a setting is essential in Hohner.

Maintenance: The assembly is being totally screwed, there is no need to worry. The reeds are easy to find spare parts by mail and should not be a problem too. The mechanism is slightly different from what is done in Hohner is also a small adjustment period is necessary and this is the only downside.

It gives me the chromatic harmonica type to offer anyone who does not want to spend several hours setting before a usable instrument. The quality of manufacture, the factory setting and the adequacy of notes really make a quality instrument and carefree. Note that Seydel offers a wide range of tones and tunings for this model.
