On stage the only things that count are super sound and reliability. That's what the Seydel 1847 offers me!!
Any out of the box harmonica can be transformed into a quality instrument. After I’ve checked the instrument and carefully worked on the set-up of the reeds they will respond quicker, the sound will be richer, and all bends will be easier to play.
I round every possible sharp corner and edge, I check the alignment of all reeds, reed curvature is checked and corrected and all reeds are gapped for better response. After this the tuning is checked twice to make sure the instrument is perfectly in tune.
This process makes the harmonica feel and play better than any stock harmonica. That's why I call a Beta-Harp a harp with the X-factor.
I only work on instruments that I believe in. The reeds have to last long, the comb has to be sealed to prevent it from swelling. The overall quality has to be of a high standard , therefore I use harmonicas that have proven themselves and that are built by a company with a strong, clear vision.
