Blues Harmonica with corrosion-free stainless steel reeds, ergonomic covers and plastic comb.
The Paddy Richter is altered from the Richter tuning by raising hole 3 blow for two semi-tones which is very useful especially for playing fast in Irish and Celtic music (1st pos: the 6th note of the major scale is playable without bending, 2nd pos.: the 2nd major scale not is available in the lower register without bending).
Please note: Seydel currently stocks the special tuning: PADDY RICHTER only in the most commonly ordered keys G, A, C and D. All other keys of the PADDY RICHTER tuning can be manufactured on demand. Please allow that to take at least a few working days more than usual to arrive (for USA/CAN customers 2-3 weeks more).

I knew before I blew into the Seydel Session Steel
Paddy- Richter tuned harp that it was going to sound
different than the standard Richter tuned harmonicas
that I’m used to.playing However, I didn’t know how
Is it a bad difference? No. To my ears the variance is
between resonating major and minor.
Even though I know no Irish songs I have fun trying
to play songs that are normally in major keys to
minor keys. No it does not always work, nonetheless
it’s fun trying.
Now before some of you think I’m nuts I suggest that
you listen to Doc Watson playing Columbus
Stockade Blues. The song starts about 6.54 in the
So if you want to try something, but not too alien
give the Seydel Session Steel Paddy-Richter tuned
harp a go.
