Dear SEYDEL friend!

This is the newsletter from C.A. SEYDEL SÖHNE where we keep you informed about all of the latest harmonica happenings.

Is the SAILOR STEEL Tremolo suited for playing traditional Irish music?

Yes, for sure it is! Here is the original sound: SEYDEL endorser >Mat Walklate is one of the most versatile harmonica players in Ireland. Besides his love for traditional Irish music he is a real Blues man and a very skilled harmonica teacher.

Mat sent us a series of three videos where he played very typical melodies on the SAILOR STEEL:

The Richter-tuned SAILOR STEEL Tremolo is as well suited for both playing melodies and/or chord accompaniment: if played with the so-called 'tongue block' technique both melody playing and accompaniment can be done simultaneously.

The SAILOR STEEL Tremolo is available in the keys of C, D and G major, as well as in Am and Em Harmonic Minor.

What is the 'secret' behind the lovely beating sound of a Tremolo harmonica?

Since the introduction of the SAILOR STEEL in 2016 players all over the world have loved the sound and the durability of the instrument. As the name suggests the SAILOR STEEL is equipped with SEYDEL's approved stainless steel reeds that are well known for their high assertiveness and their durability and tuning stability - a BIG PLUS especially for a tremolo harmonica.

The Tremolo principle:

A note is produced by two reeds tuned slightly different from each other but oscillating simultaneously. This results in the typical beating sound of a Tremolo harmonica (so called 'Wiener tuning').
