Modern 16-hole Chromatic Harmonica with a tonal range of four full octaves and stainless steel reeds
The SYMPHONY Grand Chromatic is a professional chromatic harmonica with uniquely-inspired technical developments that sets new standards in terms of sound, airtightness, playability, and reliability.
The high-quality, contemporary ergonomic design guarantees longevity and maximum playing comfort, leaving nothing to be desired.
The SYMPHONY Grand Chromatic ACRYL has a transparent-green acrylic body and halfmoon-shaped mouthpiece.
It will be shipped with a newly developed heatable case and accessories. For more info refer to the 'Tips'-section!
New slider option! The openings of the standard slider are 25% larger. The sound is full and loud. The professional-slider has a 2mm shorter action and is optimised for excellent tone control especially if you play soft pieces at lower volumes. The slider of the SYMPHONY can be changed easily and within 20 seconds. Both sliders are part of the package.
The recessed reedplates (1mm) are precision cut from anti-corrosive German silver. Hand-tuning of the 64 stainless-steel reeds, tight tolerances, and newly developed SEYDEL valves (with less adhesive than conventional valves) create an instrument with precise tone control and a rich sound with a tonal range of four full octaves.
The variant 'ACRYL' has a translucent-green colored acrylic comb. Both are CNC-milled andperfectly balanced.
The recessed reed plates are mounted with stainless steel screws and screwed on individually.
Solid, die-cast, coated aluminium coverplates are screwed on individuallyproviding a design that is widely-opened at the back for a balanced feel and dynamic, full, warm sound projection in all four octaves.
The precisely-fit, stable slider, made from 1mm German Silver, has an ergonomically convex-shaped, silver coated slider button with soft surface for the finger. Each slider is individually lapped together with the mouthpiece and works therefore very silently and is extremly airtight.
It can be serviced very easy by unscrewing only one single screw on the back of the comb and pulling the slider out for easy cleaning.
The comb accommodates the provided carrying strap, made from genuine leather and with a SEYDEL embossing, to securely harness the instrument. It can be attached either on the right or the left side of the SYMPHONY Grand Chromatic.
The SYMPHONY 'ACRYL' has a halfmoon-shaped mouthpiece. Both variants are silver-coated and screwed on from the backside of the comb to provide optimal playing comfort with no screw heads on the outer surface of the mouthpiece for better haptic properties.
The SYMPHONY Grand Chromatic offers an inimitable sound and a tonal range of four full octaves (C3-C7) and is suitable for many musical genres ranging from classical music to jazz. The very airtight SYMPHONY offers unimagined possibilities of expression and marks a new dimension in manufacturing harmonicas.
SEYDEL-Innovation: The heatable harmonica case
Each SYMPHONY Grand Chromatic is shipped in a stable, heatable case that can be locked. The instrument can be kept and carried safely in it and is at "playing temperature" always at the right moment.
Play your new SYMPHONY Grand Chromatic everywhere you go and initially! The unique heatable case deliveres the right playing temperature making it less suspectible to condensation on the inside of the instrument - humidity can evaporize faster. As accessories the heatable case comes with a USB-adapter for your car-plug, a multi-power-plug-adapter for all international power-ports and a USB-cable to connect with a computer. Additionally there is a SEYDEL-Powerbank (12.000mAh) optionally available.
Within about 20 minutes your instrument will be warmed-up to body-temperature (in the closed case). The warm-up time depends on the ambient temperature. This is achieved by an electric 'Thermopad', that is driven by 5 Volt/2.1A. The pad is connected through a Micro-USB-plug on the outside of the case. With the standard Micro-USB-cable, delivered with the case, it can be used with each USB-port that delivers minimum 2.1A.
