Description

The Symphony Alu Grand Chromatic is a professional chromatic harmonica with uniquely-inspired technical developments that sets new standards in terms of sound, air tightness, playability, and reliability.

The high-quality, contemporary ergonomic design guarantees longevity and maximum playing comfort, leaving nothing to be desired.

The Symphony Alu Grand Chromatic comes with aluminium body and trapezoidal-shaped mouthpiece. It comes with two sliders ( standard and professional).  The openings of the standard slider are 25% larger. The sound is full and loud. The professional-slider has a 2mm shorter action and is optimised for excellent tone control especially if you play soft pieces at lower volumes.  The slider can be changed easily and quickly.

The recessed reedplates (1mm) are precision cut from anti-corrosive German silver. Hand-tuning of the 64 stainless-steel reeds, tight tolerances, and newly developed Seydel valves (with less adhesive than conventional valves) create an instrument with precise tone control and a rich sound with a tonal range of four full octaves.

The Symphony ‘ALU’ has a black anodized aluminium comb and is CNC-milled and perfectly balanced.
The recessed reed plates are mounted with stainless steel screws and screwed on individually.
Solid, die-cast, coated aluminium cover plates are screwed on individually providing a design that is widely-opened at the back for a balanced feel and dynamic, full, warm sound projection in all four octaves.

The precisely-fit, stable slider, made from 1mm German Silver, has an ergonomically convex-shaped, silver coated slider button with soft surface for the finger. Each slider is individually lapped together with the mouthpiece and works therefore very silently and is extremely airtight.
The harmonica is easy to clean, by unscrewing only one single screw on the back of the comb and pulling the slider out to clean it.

The harmonica comes with a carrying strap, made from genuine leather and can be attached to either side of the comb.

The Symphony Grand Chromatic ‘ALU’ has a trapezoidal-shaped mouthpiece which is silver-coated and screwed on the back of the comb to provide optimal playing comfort with no screw heads on the outer surface of the mouthpiece for better haptic properties.

The Symphony Grand Chromatic offers an inimitable sound and a tonal range of four full octaves (C3-C7) and is suitable for many musical genres ranging from classical music to jazz. The very airtight Symphony offers unlimited possibilities of expression and marks a new dimension in manufacturing harmonicas.

Each Symphony Grand Chromatic comes in a heatable lockable case. The instrument can be kept and carried safely and is always at “playing temperature”.

Play your new Symphony Grand Chromatic everywhere you go. The unique heatable case delivers the right playing temperature making it less susceptible to condensation on the inside of the instrument – humidity can evaporize faster.

The heatable case comes with a USB-adapter for your car-plug, a multi-power-plug-adapter for all international power-ports and a USB-cable to connect with a computer.

Within about 20 minutes your instrument will be warmed-up to body-temperature (in the closed case). The warm-up time depends on the ambient temperature. This is achieved by an electric ‘Thermopad’, that is driven by 5 Volt/2.1A. The pad is connected through a Micro-USB-plug on the outside of the case. With the standard Micro-USB-cable, delivered with the case, it can be used with each USB-port that delivers minimum 2.1A.
