Product Description

The BIG SIX is a real must-have. It is a six-hole (12 note) harmonica that plays and sounds fantastic. It is a really eye-catching design with great playing features: Great sound because of stainless steel reeds also used in Seydel's top-model, the 1847! With mounting for the provided lanyard. Packed into a tin-can that serves as package and also as a resonator for many sound effects! Sealed wooden comb. The BIG SIX Blues is a standard diatonic harp in the key of C (holes 1-6 =12 tones) and is therefore suited best for playing in the second position.

The lanyard is as cheap as cheap can be.
Jasper
Ridiculously easy deep bends, clear notes, great ringing sound and with their size they lend themselves to all kinds of hand effects.

Those 1847s look like they might just be worth the money.

I've had a few of the Hohner Little Ladies in the past. They were fun, decorative, novelty items but I always thought it would be great if there was actually a miniature playable harmonica that you could wear around your neck. Not only is the Big Six playable, but it is a top of the line harmonica. While not as nice as my Seydel 1847 Classic, they are very similar. They both have the same indexing and stainless steel reeds (once you go stainless, you can't go back to brass). The wood comb is not as good of quality as the Seydel 1847 Classic but it is sealed to prevent swelling. The Seydel name is screen printed on the back unlike the engraved name on the 1847 Classics, and the Big Six reed plate doesn't have the rounded cover plates that the 1847 Classic has. I found with a few minutes of filing down the rough corners that this wasn't really a problem. The depth of the Big Six is the same as most other standard diatonic harmonicas but the height is slightly smaller. A few times hitting the 2 blow, I experienced slight buzzing (possibly the reed hitting the cover plate) but this usually doesn't occur may just be more playing style or playing to hard. I also found that the sound, while not as loud as the 1847 Classic, is actually quite loud and most everyone is impressed by the volume that such a small instrument produces.

The price is a little higher than many standard diatonic harmonicas but it does have stainless steel reeds and is still about half the price of other stainless steel Seydel models. The notes bend flawlessly (better than my Lee Oskars and Hohners). It does come with a lanyard and a tin can but I stashed these away and just wear it around a necklace as a pendant.

Wow! I just received this in the mail about a half hour ago. This Big Six "Blues"
by Seydel is going to be lots of fun to play. The sound really is more than I expected. It's really easy to bend notes. Of course there's only six holes, so I have to remember to play mostly songs or riffs that require low notes.

This is my first Seydel Harmonica. The only thing that's been holding me back is the high prices. But now that I've gotten my mitts on their cheapest Harmonica, I think it's time to try some of the more expensive ones. Those 1847s look like they might just be worth the money.

I would also like to get the "Big Six" in the "Folk" version. It goes from the low middle to the higher notes. These little Harmonicas come with a lanyard for your neck, so you could play around while you're sitting at a traffic light. I don't recommend doing anything while concentrating on your driving.

This is my favorite hamonica of the 20 or so I've played over the last few years. The sound is rich and full, all reeds worked on arrival, bending is relatively easy, and I haven't put it too out of tune with bending yet. I appreciate the small size, and cats and dogs will appreciate the omission of the high notes. The construction is very nice, I haven't had problems with wood swelling despite playing in both sun and snow. I would take this over a marine band harmonica any day because of the sound quality that, but also because Seydel has never sold me a bad reed and because of subtle features like slighly wider holes, and rounded fringes around the holes that direct airflow well. A few times I've played the same lick on this and another harmonica, and everybody has preferred the sound of the Seydel over a Chinese Hohner.

One warning: like most harmonicas, it will attempt to eat moustaches, but it's not the worst offender I've met.

It may be worth mentioning that as a student of harmonica, using this helped to confirm which difficulties were due to poor instruments and which were technique oriented. Also, I haven't thrown out the can because it can be fun, but I don't use it much.

Happy Playing!

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOE LOVE!

I was collecting a few mini harps to take on the go and use to fend off boredom in lines and grocery stores.

This is completely different from its.....Honestly it has no competition among mini-harps.

This BLUES version is basically a full sized Seydel 1847 lopped off after the first 6 holes (The FOLK version is holes 4-9 for more melodic playing). The tone is glorious, full, responsive, bends well, and feels good on the lips (with minor occasional irritation from one corner where the cover was cut and reshaped to fit, but a minute of sanding or filing will eliminate that rare nuisance).

It comes with a neck lanyard too absurd for anyone over 14 to wear, but one corner sports a thin tether with a quick release for keychains that's actually convenient. It's also convenient to pinch this tether between the fingers for secure holding.

Six holes is ample to play a lot of music and the sound is as good as any harp I own. Really. It's bizarre. But I simply love this little runt and take it everywhere. It's weird and lovable and shockingly high quality. I can't wait to pick up a full sized 10 or 12 hole model next, but this little baby's my "Boo" and i just want to play with her all the time.
