The Noble is now available in super-low
tunings, redesigned to include a 20% thicker
comb and raised coverplates.
Available keys range from LF# (low F sharp) down
to LLE (double-low E).
This innovation expands our 1847 line of
Stainless Steel reed harmonicas to include
the extreme bass range.
The double-low models (LL) are tuned two octaves
lower than standard, makingSEYDEL’s 1847 LLE
the lowest tuned diatonic harmonica worldwide.
In comparison to the 'standard tuned' models,
low-tuned harmonicas offer a very sonoric,
slightly softer and unobtrusive sound making
them an excellent choice for accompaniment
(chords or bass lines) as well as for soloing.
Their sound is similar to that of a tenor saxophone,
a trombone, or even a tuba, especially if played
amplified. This considerably extends the range of
application and opens many new possibilities for
To get the desired sound out of the low-tuned
models the notes need more space.
The resonance chamber, increased by the 20%
thicker comb (sealed walnut) and the higher
coverplates of the new 1847 Low models,
help to produce a fatter and louder sound.
This design change has a positive impact on
sonority and tonal control of the 1847 Low models.
While the player is animated to open his or her vocal
tract slightly more to increase the resonance chamber,
the improvements in design, such as the thicker comb
aid in creating the larger resonance chamber, yielding
a superior, low sound.
The sound becomes fuller and more voluminous
and the instrument can be played with a better response.
Thanks to the raised coverplates rattling reed noise
is a thing of the past and players get a greater sound
projection towards the audience through the
wide-opened back of the instrument.
