Seydel Tremolo Harmonica - 26480 SAILOR STEEL Richter (161498-HT)   STATUS - NOW AVAILABLE - Click here to purchase from our eBay store - OR - Email or Phone to Order
The Seydel 26480 SAILOR STEEL Richter is a 24-hole, 48-reed, Richter-tuned tremolo harmonica. Other keys and tunings are available by phone or email order.

SAILOR STEEL Tremolo – the first traditionally-shaped tremolo harmonica with stainless steel reeds.

Traditional Tremolo harmonica with SEYDEL's unique Stainless Steel reeds

This traditionally built diatonic tremolo-harmonica has a divided plastic comb: four holes in a square correspond to one draw and one blow note.

If a single note is played two reeds that are tuned a little bit different start to operate together. As the result the floating tremolo sound is produced that grew into a typical stylistic element of many different kinds of folk music on the harmonica.

The SAILOR STEEL Tremolo is available in the keys of C, D and G major, as well as in A and E harmonic minor.

The SAILOR STEEL Tremolo is well suited for playing melodies or chord accompaniment. If played with the so called tongue block technique both can be done simultaneously and then the full and rich sound of the SAILOR STEEL Tremolo reminds of a big styrian accordion.

The SAILOR STEEL Tremolo – ambitious players of many traditional musical styles (Shanty, Alpenländische Volksmusik, Irish Folk, Classical, etc.) will not want to miss out on this fantastic instrument.
