The 1847 SILVER corrosion-free Richter-diatonic harmonica with stainless steel reeds. Also as Paddy or half-valved!

The 1847 SILVER impresses by its unprecedented visual appearence but also by new technical features.

  • besides the reeds and the rivets the cover plates and reedplate screws are made of Stainless Steel
  • reedplates made of non-corrosive German Silver
  • solid polymer comb

Well known features of the 1847 CLASSIC were transferred to the 1847 Silver:

  • less air-loss due to fine-cut reedplates - optimised flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reedplate
  • beard- and lip-friendly coverplates with rounded edges without any cuts at the mouthpiece
  • the overtone-rich sound can spread out unhindered - covers opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore a good stability and rounded edges

And the sound of the 1847 SILVER?

Try to find out if you like it even better than the sound of the 1847 CLASSIC!

Hand made in Germany.
Available in Ab, A, Bb, C, Db, D, Eb, E, F#, G, Low C, Low Db, Low D, Low Eb, Low E, Low F, Low F#

I use my harmonicas for my online courses and instruction with a renowned harmonica teacher.
I will be adding the Seydel Silver to my collection and am certain that the quality of manufacture and the corrosion free stainless steel reeds will serve me well for some considerable time and will be glad to complete a long term rating in the future.
