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.


  • Type: Diatonic
  • Tuning: Richter
  • Number of holes: 10
  • Reeds: Stainless Steel
  • Cover plates:Stainless Steel
  • Reed plate surface:Non-corrosive German Silver
  • Comb: Polymer Comb
  • Length: 4.4 in


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.


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.


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.


I just purchased the Seydel

I just purchased the Seydel Blues Silver 1847. I just wanted to see how durable it really is compared to my Marineband Crossover.. Hopefully this will be a good experience.. Ill always be down with Hohner harps, but I do need variety and quality .. Thanks for your review..
