Popular Harmonicas from Seydel
Seydel and Eagle Music have a close relationship that goes back many years. Right back in the early days of Eagle Music when our owners met with Lars Seifert, who is the company chairman and originally hails from Klingethal, Germany where Seydel are based. It was clear that we wanted to supply their excellent harmonicas and they are now one of our favourite brands.
Our Eagle Music motto ‘Excellence in Music’ certainly applies to them. Right from the leading figures in the company to the excellent customer service that Seydel offers on a daily basis, the term professional and efficiency very much resonates with them. They are a very good company to deal with.
Seydel produces many different types of harmonicas for the beginner to the accomplished player and in all formats of the instrument and are chosen by some of the world's best players. Brendan Power, who is widely regarded as one of the world’s leading harmonica innovators, has worked very closely with Seydel over the years.
If you are just starting out on your harmonica journey then the 10 hole blues harmonica will be your first choice with models like the Seydel Session or Solist Pro. If you are looking to play Classical or Jazz or just want more range then the Chromatic Deluxe should be on your radar. Alternatively if you are wanting the very best then the Seydel Lightning with its polished aluminium comb or the 12 or 16 hole Symphony model, the ‘Grand Chromatic’ will be your choice, both class leading harmonicas.
The term ‘Sounds stronger, lives longer’ was coined by Seydel when they introduced pretty much one of the only manufacturers to produce stainless steel reeds on harmonicas. Most favour brass (which they still offer on some models). For the folk musicians out there the tremolo or octave harmonicas are popular also amongst our customers at Eagle Music.
