Solo-tuned diatonic Harmonica with corrosion-free stainless steel reeds (orchestra-tuning), ergonomic covers and carmine red plastic comb.
The ORCHESTRA S: We are excited to offer a ten-hole, solo-tuned harmonica (Orchestra-tuning)! As with the chromatic harmonica, all notes from the major scale are available throughout a two-and-a-half octave range.
The ORCHESTRA S offers even more! Typically, the root note is found in hole 1-blow. The ORCHESTRA S places the root note at hole 3-blow, and half of the lower octave is added to holes 1 and 2. Since many players miss some of the notes on the standard Richter-tuned diatonic harmonica in the lower register the ORCHESTRA S allows them to hit the missing notes without having to apply a bending technique. The root note of the diatonic major scale is marked on the coverplate - it starts in 3 blow.
This makes the ORCHESTRA S an ideal soloing instrument; the ten-hole design makes the Orchestra-S compact enough to take your melodies anywhere!
The note layout is basically the same as that of a chromatic harmonica, making the ORCHESTRA S a great starting harmonica for learning to play a chromatic. The compact size combined with SEYDEL's durability makes the ORCHESTRA S a good choice for musical education in schools.
The ORCHESTRA S opens new possibilities to blues harmonica players by making it easy to play minor pieces (3rd position) with a sound similar to solos played on a chromatic, thanks to the solo-tuning. They will also appreciate the extended major scale in the lower register. The root note of the dominant chord is available in the hole 1-draw, making it similar to playing in 2nd position on a standard Richter-tuned harmonica.
Seasoned blues players will find all the notes of the blues scale through natural notes and bent notes, bringing soul and color to their blues improvisation.
- Solo-tuning in a ten-hole, compact harmonica
- Expanded tonal range in the lower register (Orchestra tuning)
- Stainless-steel reeds, coverplates, and screws combined for unparalleled durability (outlasting brass-reed models by up to five-times)
- Anti-corrosive, German-silver reedplates
- Lip-friendly, translucent carmine red plastic comb (ABS) with recessed reedplates
- Protective, full-grain leather pouch included

Dear Kazimir, today arrived all material, perfect and thank you for the most appreciated mini harmonica! Best regards and wishes from Italy.
First of all thanks to send this item to Norway, I have been searching everywhere for it but, most companies simply do not send it here.
Kaz, thanks for your help. Look forward to my next purchase through you.
I got it thanks super-fast shipping. The sound of it blows me away!! Compared to the Hohner blues harp. Will get a C from you at some point thanks.
I really appreciate, great service! Will use and recommend your company.

Thanks Kaz for your excellent, quick service and excellent pricing on my recent harmonica order. I have received all my Harps Including the one back ordered within 3 business days, you are AWESOME to say the least. Again I will tell my musical buddies about you. See you next time I’m in Hamilton.

I'm glad that there is a logical explanation. People sometimes can be hurried or distracted for many reasons. I will continue to be a customer in good faith. Thank you for getting this fixed up.
The bass was received in Honolulu a few days ago with no issues. I truly appreciate you following up on the delivery and my satisfaction of the Beaver Creek Travel Bass. Thanks.
Thanks for the email. Terrific customer service. I believe my issue was at my end. Really appreciate the email. Cheers!
Just wanted to say 'great service.' I ordered some Hohner harmonicas and was really impressed with how quickly they arrived. Terrific!
Thanks Kaz. I just got them, boy that was fast. They are still cold from the transportation: I will try them later and give you feedback.
I just ordered the Steven Tyler last night at 4 pm and I have it already today. What excellent service you all provide. The harmonica by the way is heaven.
Thank you to everyone. You are all the best!
