- Great for bending notes
- Excellent for playing folk music
- Not as good for playing the blues
- Other harps in the same price range may be a bit more reliable and versatile
The Seydel Sailor Tremolo is a 48-hole harmonica with two rows of holes. It features brass reeds and nickel plated covers. It also has a plastic comb. As with other tremolos, the Sailor has two draw and two blow reeds per hole. They are designed to make the tremolo effect (bending notes) easier for the the musician. This particular harmonica sounds almost like an accordion. It's great for playing polkas and jigs. However, it can also be used to play other songs, such as Irish folk music. However, if you are looking for a blues harp, this harmonica might disappoint you.
