Seydel Blues Silver 1847 Harmonica - Key of C

The Blues Silver 1847 is well known for its stainless steel reeds and non-corrosive silver-finish reed plates.

Instead of having the Classic 1847's maple comb, the Blues Silver version has been upgraded to a solid polymer comb built with an addition of stainless steel reed plate screws.

Its cover plates are built to be beard and lip-friendly due to its rounded edge design.

Pros

Many owners who reviewed it praised its quality craftsmanship and durability, given that it has built-in steel reeds. Many of them mentioned it's easier to grip and play than many other models because of its ergonomic design. Its non-vented cover plates contribute to the warm sound it produces. Professional players who own multiple harmonicas tend to use this harmonica often during live performances while accompanying other instruments due to its responsiveness and loudness.

Cons

There were a small number of owners who complained about build quality - one guy with a mustache even said it got caught in his facial hair.

Overall

This harmonica is generally considered good value for money however there are more highly rated options that we recommend you look at in our guide to The Best Harmonicas for Blues - Top Blues Harps.
