Don't let go
Kristine M. on 10/08/2021This is one fine instrument. Easy to hold and easy to play,. I don't usually buy Blues types Since I don't normally play Blues. I play Folk & modern classical, & even put a jazzy twist on them. So this harmonica plays well for my last use.
Great except shipping charges to Canada...
Martin T. on 09/25/2021Great except shipping charges to Canada WAY TOO HIGH!!

Don Hale
Don H. on 03/11/2021Wow! What a great harp! Great fit and finish, and most of all a super sound. It’s about one hole size larger than your standard harp and it feels right. That little extra gives a better feel while holding it. Well worth it!
First Seydel
Andrew R. on 03/10/2021I have enjoyed Seydel Session Steel and am looking forward to trying their other models. Session Steel is gentle on my facial hair compared to my Hohner and Suzuki Mandji models.

Comb ?
John K. on 01/12/2021They should make the comb out of aluminum not plastic had two comb breakdowns
Love the Seydel Session Steel Harmonicas
Steve K. on 01/04/2021This is one of five Seydel Session Steels I have and I love playing them. The only issue I've had is that I've already had two which have needed reed replacements, including one (not the key of D rated here) that had one of the reeds go badly out of tune in less than a month being one of my least played keys.
Seydel Session Steel
Jeremy E. on 12/18/2020I have several harmonicas and the Seydel Session Steel is my favorite, the plastic comb is the most comfortable (Hohner Marine Band is the least) and sounds great.
Sender does it again!
Bryan W. on 12/11/2020stainless steel never sounded so good! Comfortable harp with plenty of volume!
Seydel (Session Steel) has some winners here. .
Tony A. on 11/16/2020They're compact and friendly to the hands and mouth. Great design, easy to carry & just about as indestructible as a steel wedge. On top of all that, they have great tone, consistent volume and they even play very well too. My first purchase was the 'Orchestra' in low C. WOW, perfect to master a new melody. I love their leather slip-in case.
Donald A. on 11/13/2020These are good harps, always consistent. Not cheap in any way.
Great Seydel harp.
Dale S. on 11/06/2020Another great Seydel harp.
rico ricio
Richard L. on 10/25/2020multiple time buyer... love this model
Great quality instrument and awesome sound!
Joshua M. on 10/03/2020Coming from Marine Band harps, this was my first Seydel, and now I can't believe the difference. The plastic comb and recessed reedplate makes it much more comfortable to play for hours, plus, the reeds don't seem to get as dirty as my MR harps due to the Seydel design. I'll definitely be buying more of these.
Just as described
Dale A. on 09/23/2020Harps play good and just as described. Fast shipping

Selling the wrong key!
Ian B. on 05/26/2020

You advertise this harmonica as a LOW GB, but when you get it it’s a LOW F#. When inquiring about it your service department Just says that a LF# is the same as a LGb. Misrepresentation as far as I’m concerned!


Gb and F# are indeed the same note and key, Low G is not the same as Low F#, Low Gb and Low F# are identical just 2 different ways of naming the same key.

Michael P. on 05/06/2020

Was really impressed with the speed with which the harmonica was sent. Shipped the same day! This is rare today with online orders. The harmonica is nice to play. Thought there might be a difference between the brass vs steel reeds. There is no difference ! They don't sound or play better.

Seder blues session steel
Ronnie W. on 05/02/2020

I think stainless steel reeds are not better than other material. I have phosphore bronze ones that play much better. Holes are wider than my other harmonicas and I don't like it.

Disappointing quality
Harry S. on 04/29/2020

Made in Germany is not as good as it used to be. Broke 2 Stainless steel reeds in the first month ...

William S. on 03/09/2020The most important thing to me is an air-tight harmonica. The Seydel Session Steel harmonicas are consistently playable over several different keys that I've tried
session steel
CRAIG W. on 02/22/2020Being a beginner there is no way to really tell how good this harmonica is. It seems to be of high quality.
John K. on 01/29/2020Very happy with the harmonica
My new favorite harp
 on 11/22/2019I love this harp. Like a bass sax. Ignore the comments from the "it takes so much air to blow this". Of course it does. A great harp. I love to play it in the higher registerss.
Orchestral G
tom m. on 11/03/2019Not the diatonic harp I wanted ! Overall, I love Seydel
Blues harp
Howard H. on 10/23/2019Will be good for straight up blues. But may not be my harp of choice for jazzier stuff or acoustic folky stuff.
Played it last Sunday in church.
Steven G. on 09/10/2019The Seydel harmonica is a good lasting alternative to the Hohners I have been using. I hope they last as long as the people on Youtube say they do. I am wearing out the brass reeds on my old Hohner and Johnson Harmonicas, and replacing them (hopefully), one per month. Would love getting a "deal" on a package set of steel reed iSeydels> Thanks.
Best low key harp I've tried
Christopher D. on 07/09/2019Everything about the Sessions Steel is attractive: tone, build, design. Great product!
Great low harmonica
Christopher D. on 07/09/2019Really like the design and tone of the Session Steel; low D is a standout key too.
If it's a harmonica you want ...
Peter T. on 06/05/2019I got my harps on time and in good condition . This was great shopping there as it was not a hassle to find the exact harp I needed, without having to take my chances at our local music store, or on Amazon, where twice now they have sent me the wrong one.
comparison - with ROCKET - - -
Psycho-Acoustics P. on 05/21/2019Warm - takes a lot more air than the rocket - good bends and overblows - still learning - and have a preference for the Rocket low C - brassy - loud - much more blusey.

Really nice harp. Great Selection.
Dale S. on 05/07/2019Thanks
Really nice harp. Great Selection.
Dale S. on 05/07/2019Thanks
Mike A. on 04/03/2019I bought my second seydel. I really want to like them because of their stainless steel components but they don't play as well for me as the Sp 20. I think it's the reed adjustment. More difficult to get the reeds on the first 4 holes adjusted IMHO.
Some not quite as good
David B. on 03/30/2019Of the two of these I purchase, the C had less volume, and sounded less full than the other. Perhaps it will open up.
Some better
David B. on 03/30/2019Seydel steels are good harps, just some need more breaking in, some have more volume. Don't know why, but I have a few of them, and they're pretty good, and seem durable.
Rare key
David B. on 11/14/2018Good product

Great Harmonica
Jeffery B. on 06/27/2018I was told to buy this harp. I have been a trumpet/bugle player since 1970. The standard harmonicas are too small for what I need. It is well made and sounds great. I just wish I could pick it up and play it like I have been playing for years. Nothing comes easy to me. I just need to practice and this harp will give me the best chance to succeed.
Terry M. on 05/10/2018Great harp great fast service what else can I say will do more business here
Session Steel
Thomas M. on 03/22/2018I play the harmonica for my own amusement. It's fun to switch between the Session Steel and the 1847.
Joe Suarez
Joseph S. on 03/16/2018The harmonica within two - 3 days of order. However, I could barely get a sound from the # 2  draw. I immediately called Seydel and sent the harmonica to their N.C. center for correction. This is disappointing as this is a $60 Seydel and I expected better from them. I've had cheaper harmonicas that have performed much better. Maybe no more Seydels for me.
Positive Review
Parran K. on 03/01/2018I received the Seydel a Session harmonica and it was well packaged, arrived promptly and both was and is a fine product. Perry
I ordered a whole set of Seydel Session Steel
Jay S. on 11/18/2017I have played 3 gigs with them and so far I love them, they are easy to play, they have great tone and they are easy on the lips. Hopefully they will last a long time as advertised. Jay S. Playing Rockin Blues Harp since 1970
Seydel Blues Session Steel
Roger H. on 11/12/2017I am surprised how good this harp is. It sounds great. It bends easy, I tuned and gapped it, and it plays very well. Congrats Seydel, you done good!
Stephen e. on 10/10/2017Geart
Stephen e. on 10/10/2017Great
plays great
Anthony S. on 10/05/2017Compared to my old standby, the Special 20, the Seydel Session Steel plays very easily, is very tight, and has a great sound. Its longevity should make it worth the extra cost.

Strange, disonent overtones
Brian B. on 09/21/2017A well-made harp that plays well, but due to strange, disonent, non-musical overtones, I frankly can't use it. Back to my old faithful Lee Oskars.
Decent Harp
SAGE H. on 09/20/2017Nice design, plays well.
Disappointed with the airy-ness in whole 2
SAGE H. on 09/20/2017Has the "wind tunnel" sound on whole 2 which you expect from a cheap harmonica except this is NOT an inexpensive harp. I was disappointed with the airy-ness of this harmonica.
Gene A. on 04/02/2017They make a great harp!
Good quality harp from Seydel
Amy D. on 04/16/2006The only orange comb harmonica on the market ! The Session Steel Seydel looks good and has stainless steel reeds. Mine did not last longer than my Hohner but anyways it's a good harp but clearly overpriced. Good tone for a plastic comb not too easy to play though.
