The Seydel Orchestra S Session Steel Solo has a layout that is similar to a standard chromatic harmonica. That means that anyone transitioning to playing chromatics might find this to be a good mouth harp to start with. However, the difference is that the Orchestra S Session Steel Solo only has 10 holes. But don’t let its smaller size fool you. It is still an excellent mouth harp. It has a lovely tone, and its screw assembly makes it easy to adjust or replace the reeds. Although, it plays beautifully all on its own. So, tuning it yourself isn’t required.
Unusual size and layout make it not suited to beginners
