The first serial-produced Richter-diatonic harmonica with stainless steel reeds!

• Full and loud, overtone-rich sound and extremely fast tone-response due to stainless steel reeds
• Very long durability and even with heavy duty playing - stainless steel reeds and stainless steel rivets
• Less air-loss due to fine-cut reedplates - optimized flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reedplate
• Beard- and lip-friendly - coverplates with rounded edges without any cuts at the mouthpiece and ergonomic built hole-openings and rounded dividers
• The overtone-rich sound can spread out undampened - covers made of extra strong stainless steel sheet (0.4mm), opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore a good stability and rounded edges
• moisture-proof, swelling-free maple-comb, sealed with multiple layers of food-safe finish


The 1847, a harmonica, that impresses from innovation but nevertheless fits all traditional demands - a master's instrument for maximum ambitions.

The 1847 is the result of Seydel's 160-year of experience in manufacturing high-quality harmonicas. Also available with plastic combs, the 1847SILVER or in a set.

...some customer statements optained lately (April 2007):

"OH MY GOD!! And thank God! This is the BADDEST harp in the world!!!" (Jimi Lee)

"That 1847 is an awesome harp, great tone and superb workmanship. In my opinion the 1847 is every bit as good as you would get from one of the better customizers. And I have harps from the better customizers..." (Dennis Fischette)

Seydel Paddy Tuned 1847

I purchased this Seydel 1847 Paddy tuned in C major to play a specific old Irish folk song that is difficult to play well on a normal tuned diatonic harp. This Seydel is pricy, but Ron had it in stock and even offered a discount. Offering me a discount shows Ron's high ethics, as he knew I needed this harp now, and I was desperate. The 1847 C Paddy was perfect for the song (Whisky in the Jar). This harp is a very high quality professional instrument. Everything about it shows a high level of care went into its production. It's a perfect harp in every way, particularly its wood comb, very smooth, rounded corners, sealed very well. This harp is a joy to play and the Paddy tuning was easy to adjust to and intuitive, the stainless steel reeds are very responsive, nicely complex loud tone due to the wood comb, air tightness, and the open stainless covers.
