I purchased this harmonica to use as a standby, so that I can leave it in the car for practice.
This instrument is very well made & has an excellent sound. It is easy to play & easy on the lips and mouth. It has a nylon comb so nothing to warp. It would be my recommendation for a beginner, as the price is reasonable as well. Then when proficient they could upgrade to the Noble.

Very well made. Much more comfortable to play at the ends of the harp than the traditional shape.
The sound is, of course, subjective but I personally think it's better than traditional brass reeds.

It's my second harmonica and I'm just a beginner. It's a great piece of kit and sounds great but possibly not the best choice as a beginner harp. It will certainly force you to work on your embouchure though

I got my first Seydel mouth organ in Germany a few months ago and was so impressed that I looked up on the internet whether there are any shops in the UK selling Seydel harmonicas. I am please to have found one (Eagle Music in Huddersfield) and am looking forward to playing in my Seydel Session Steel in Low C.

As a working musician I play a lot of harmonica, both blues and straight. My opinion is that the Seydel Session steel is VERY good value for money in it's price range. The quality is superb. The sweet sound and playability is second to none, and the notes are easy to bend. Also, overblows are easily achievable with this harp.

Bought as a first harmonica so with my limited knowledge it's difficult to review at this stage but so far very happy with my purchase. Having the steel reeds was the deal clincher for me which hopefully means it will last longer.Would have preferred it to have a hard case instead of the soft pouch but this didn't put me off buying.
