The 1847 ALL MINOR HARMONICA- the first harmonica that can temporarily switched from Major into Minor

 

Harmonica of the month - SEYDEL INNOVATION*:

3 in 1 - the ALL MINOR HARMONICA is a Richter, a Natural Minor and a Harmonic Minor Harmonica in one instrument! 

With the sliders this harmonica can be re-tuned as easy as a guitar. It is very simple to re-tune it from Major to Minor and vice versa. What you hear in the sound examples are no bending-notes!

*The inspiration for designing the ALL MINOR HARMONICA came from Jim Antaki's Turboslide harmonica (>www.turboharp.com) where little magnets were used to alter the pitch of stainless steel reeds for the first time.


The tone table shows a Richter harmonica in C major:


small: Re-tuning the upper reedplate to Minor (upper sliders U2, U5 and U8).

 

small: Re-tuning the draw reedplate: Natural Minor (lower sliders L3 and L7)

small: Re-tuning the draw reedplate: Harmonic Minor (lower sliders L6 and L10)

 

Inginiously simple tuning principle: the SEYDEL MAGNET-SYSTEM

If you slide the magnetic sliders of your ALL MINOR HARMONICA towards the tip-end of the reed the magnetic field slows down the reed's oscillation resulting in a pitched-down tone. It can be re-tuned for a semitone down.

Besides its innovative magnet-slider cover plates the 1847 ALL MINOR HARMONICA is constructed like the approved 1847 SILVER model.


• the reeds and the rivets as well as the cover plates and reedplate screws are made of Stainless Steel

• reedplates made of non-corrosive German Silver

• solid polymer comb in nano grey

• less air-loss due to fine-cut reedplates - optimised flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reedplate

• beard- and lip-friendly coverplates with rounded edges without any cuts at the mouthpiece

• the overtone-rich sound can spread out unhindered - covers opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore a good stability and rounded edges
