Seydel Sampler


One instrument in two keys and three full octaves available.


Two harmonicas in one!  The Seydel Sampler is a solo tuned diatonic harmonica with a key changing slider, which allows you to play in keys C and G on one harmonica. It is tuned in equal temperament, so is ideal for playing melodies using all notes of the major scale over a full three-octave range. The slider is similar to a chromatic harmonica but is lockable, changes the key that you play. If the slider is depressed you are playing in G major, if the slider is released you are playing in C major.

Available in G/D and A/D
The Seydel Sampler is half valved, which enables note bending as you would on a standard diatonic harmonica, which gives the player more creativity and expressive playing. You can instantly switch between A minor and D minor simply by pressing or releasing the slider.

Solo-tuning in the keys of G and D is suited for playing thousands of Irish Folk,
Scottish and other Celtic melodies in the keys of D, G, Am, Em and Bm.

A great harmonica for playing classical, folk and pop music, and also for experienced blues players to explore new possibilities.
