Seydel Volcany STEEL REED 12 Hole Chromatic Harmonica 100% German Made JUST OUT
THE NEW SEYDEL VOLCANY!
STAINLESS STEEL REED
12 HOLE CHROMATIC HARMONICA
This is the Unique and Exciting NEW Chromatic
With Stainless Steel Reeds and a Solid BRASS Comb!
This is a brand new model from Seydel released to celebrate their 175 years in making harmonicas. There are two options, standard solo tuning and "orchestra" tuning. The "Orchestra" version is in C but starts a few steps lower on G. (The Orchestra model has the first 12 holes of a typical 14 holer for lower range, but is still in C.)
Unique: comb, mouthpiece and the coverplates are made of solid Brass, polished and lacquered - the heart of the instrument are our proven reeds made of Stainless Steel. This unique combination of soft and hard materials guarantees astonishing haptics and a very sophisticated tone. The VOLCANY Chromatic - THE ERUPTION OF SOUND!
- high-precision manufactured brass comb, polished to a high gloss and with special coating
- covers made of highly polished brass; special coating with very good gliding properties - very lip-friendly, wide open on the back - for undamped radiation of the overtone-rich sound
- mouthpiece with very good gliding properties made of highly polished brass with special coating; crescent-shaped and with round channel openings
- slide package - optimized for improved air tightness; very good sliding properties due to fixed tolerances between mouthpiece and slide track
- full, loud sound and fast response due to the use of stainless steel reeds - very durable and tuning stable even under heavy use
- less air consumption due to optimized reedplates made of German Silver - optimized flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and slot
- reliable valve action - proven valve material (burled)
- in Solo- or Orchestra tuning - straight (upper plate C; lower plate C#)
- total weight of the instrument: 440 g / 15,5 Oz
All components were rethought and improved – the result is the Volcany CHROMATIC chromatic. Seydel has a 175 year long tradition of making quality harmonicas. Precision, made in Klingenthal Germany.
