A reasonably priced entry into the harmonica world: The Blues SESSION Standard with brass reeds.

The SESSION Standard is a professional harmonica that is 100% made in Germany. It is suitable for beginners and advanced players alike.

These so-called "Diatonic Harmonicas" or "Blues Harmonicas" are suitable for music of all kinds. No matter if you like to play German folk music, Irish folk, Scottish reels, French chansons, English-language folk songs from the 70s or, of course, traditional blues and the rock music that grew out of it. These are the musical genres from which the Blues harmonica has become indispensable.

These instruments are ideal for playing melodies with self-accompaniment (tongue-block technique), which makes these small instruments sound like an accordion.

In Blues and Rock, the Blues scale is played and thus bending notes are needed. These bent notes can be played on these diatonic models and suddenly SESSION STEEL sounds like a Blues singer from the Mississippi Delta. Modern players add overblows to turn the originally diatonic instrument into a chromatic-playable one, which then also feels at home in jazz or classical music.

The Blues SESSION Standard is thus a fully equipped solo instrument that fits in any pocket!
