Review Summary:

The Seydel Blues Solist Pro diatonic harmonica utilizes German silver reed plates, like several other Seydel models. Those reed plates make the harmonica airtight, which means that notes take less air to play. The wooden body also adds to the nice sound of this harmonica. If you are interested in playing the blues, you will love the fact that this harmonica comes in 20 keys. So, the model offers some versatility. However, the reeds have a tendency to break within a month or so, which means that this isn't the most reliable harp. Therefore, even though it's marketed as a “pro” harp, it's better suited to casual players.


  • Requires very little air to play
  • Nice sound for the price


  • Reeds break easily, which makes it not suitable for professional play

    I own quite a few Harmonica’s. Vintage marine bands, customized MB’s, prewar. Lee Oskar, seydel 1847 . The seydel blues soloist pro is a hell of a deal. Plays like a fully custom MB, bends are easy and predictable. The high notes are easy and sweet sounding. The tone is warm and rich like a good marine band .

    Why Seydel spelled “solist” without another “0” ? Is that on purpose for the sake of a peculiar brand ?
