- Full and loud, overtone-rich sound and extremely fast tone-response due to stainless steel reeds
- Very long durability and even with heavy duty playing - stainless steel reeds and stainless steel rivets
- Less air-loss due to fine-cut reedplates - optimized flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reedplate
and lip-friendly - coverplates with rounded edges without any cuts at
the mouthpiece and ergonomic built hole-openings and rounded dividers

a harmonica, that impresses from innovation but nevertheless fits all

The 1847 is the result of Seydel's 160-year of experience in
manufacturing high-quality harmonicas.
...some customer statements optained lately (April 2007):
"OH MY GOD!! And thank God! This is the BADDEST harp in the world!!!" (Jimi Lee)
1847 is an awesome harp, great tone and superb workmanship. In my
opinion the 1847 is every bit as good as you would get from one of the
better customizers. And I have harps from the better customizers..."
