PT Gazell Half-Valved
Seydel 1847 Silver Harmonica
PT Gazell is an amazing player who has developed a method of playing chromatically on the diatonic. He used half-valving to achieve both blow and draw bends on holes where they are not normally possible.
The 1847 SILVER is a corrosion-free Richter-diatonic harmonica with stainless steel reeds, a solid poly comb, and an opened back for greater volume. The 1847 SILVER impresses by its unprecedented visual appearance 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 with half-valved reeds
• 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
