PowerChromatic DE LUXE STEEL


Manufacturer: Seydel

Product Information

PowerChromatic SAXONY tuning - very versatile special tuning for playing any musical style. Please note the prolongued delivery time.

The PowerChromatic variant is produced on demand! Therefore delivery might take 2-3 weeks.

The PowerChromatic is a half-valved chromatic harmonica with 12 holes, 48 traditional stainless steel reeds - model DE LUXE STEEL with orange acrylic comb and halfmoon-shaped mouthpiece.

Brendan Power invented the half-valved PowerChromatic tuning in the early 1980s and has recorded extensively with it ever since then (also watch the video below).

Here’s why it sounds so good:

  • Every draw reed bends a semitone. This gives you lots of soulful expression, just like on a 10 hole diatonic harp.
  • The draw bends give many of what Brendan calls “Bend Enharmonics”. That means you can get half the existing notes on the harmonica also as soulful draw bends!
  • Blow Slide-In is the same as Draw-Bend Slide-Out, and Draw Slide-Out is the same as Draw-Bend Slide-In. This gives many more options for easier phrasing and a more flowing sound.
  • Fully chromatic in 3 octaves with slider button, just like a solo-tuned chromatic harmonica.
  • Every octave has the same breathing pattern, and the blow reed is always lower than the draw.
  • You can play lots of chromatic phrases with draw-bending instead of using slider button.
  • Easy to play in many different keys, as the draw-bending options mean you don’t have to use the slider button so much.

You will be amazed at how soulful a chromatic harmonica can sound when you play the half-valved PowerChromatic.
