I picked up a Seydel 1847 Silver in Low D and can’t stop playing blues shuffles! It’s such a gorgeous harp to play and the low D has such a beautiful, throaty growl to it. It’s hard to make a harp that low respond to your every intonation so your music becomes a bit overlapped and you really have to enunciate your notes to make the music work. I’m still getting to know her, but it’s a pleasure to run through the paces with her. Have a listen and see what you think. And, by all means, I highly encourage you to buy a harp in a low tuning! Especially this Seydel! It’s just an absolute joy to play!
Ohhh Low D, that’s one of the first Seydel’s I picked up, to curiously find out how they are…Great, then came Low F#, Low E… even Double Low F…All great sounding, though most of them are all the standard Blues Session models, I also tried their minors and Circular tuning models…I’m converted. I seriously doubt I’ll touch those Lee Oskars again.
Currently awaiting a Blues Sessions Steel in Low C…
Happy harping! 🙂
Let me know what you think of the Session Steel. I bought one not too long ago and am getting ready to post a video of myself playing it, actually. I would like to hear what you think of it once you get a good feel for it.
Thanks for reading!
