The Seydel Chromatic Standard is a 12-hole, 48-reed harmonica. It has a plastic mouthpiece and comb. Although they have a solid-looking construction, they do have some problems. The biggest problem with the Chromatic Standard is that it takes a lot of air on the blow notes. In other words, you can’t get much volume out of this harp without wasting a lot of breath. That makes it a horrible harmonica for professional musicians to use in concerts. However, those who play the mouth harp as a hobby might find it nice to learn on when they are first transitioning to chromatic play from diatonic.

PROS

Comfortable plastic mouthpiece

Good transitional harp for those learning to play a chromatic

CONS

Not much volume

Sound quality is a little lower than others in the price range

Not a good harmonica for professional play

Sorry this harmonica is currently not available for purchase.
