      Brendan Power in association with Seydel presents the Power Chromatic Saxony
      Key of G

      Seydel and Brendan Power teams together to offer the legendary Saxony model with Brendan Power bending capabilities

      Key of G


      This model is made on demand only so expect 2-3 weeks before delivery!

      The Power Chromatic is a half-valved chromatic harmonica with 12 holes, 48 traditional stainless steel reeds - model SAXONY with aluminium comb and trapezoidal-shaped mouthpiece.

       

      Brendan invented the half-valved Power Chromatic tuning in the early 1980s and has recorded extensively with it ever since then.

      Here’s why it sounds so good:

      • Every draw reed bends a semitone. This gives you lots of soulful expression, just like on a 10 hole diatonic harp.
      • The draw bends give many of what Brendan calls “Bend Enharmonics”. That means you can get half the existing notes on the harmonica also as soulful draw bends!
      • Blow Slide-In is the same as Draw-Bend Slide-Out, and Draw Slide-Out is the same as Draw-Bend Slide-In. This gives many more options for easier phrasing and a more flowing sound.
      • Fully chromatic in 3 octaves with slider button, just like a solo-tuned chromatic harmonica.
      • Every octave has the same breathing pattern, and the blow reed is always lower than the draw.
      • You can play lots of chromatic phrases with draw-bending instead of using slider button.
      • Easy to play in many different keys, as the draw-bending options mean you don’t have to use the slider button so much.
