I'll second this. If you can find a CX-12 in your price range, I'd take that over the 270 or the Seydel. I'll also second the tenor suggestion.

Get yourself a Hohner CX-12 if you like a darker bluesy sound.. Or a 270
Hohner Super Chromonica otherwise... Both are available within your price
But you have LOTS of other options!
My "first chromatic" was a 270 in the key of "G"... I still tend to "think
harmonica" based on a "G" tuned chromatic. This has (probably) been a
disadvantage for me, over the years.
Just a thought... You could purchase a TENOR tuned Hohner CX-12, or a 270.
In the key of "C".
That will be better for a more "bluesy" or "jazzy" sound (IMHO ) than the
regular "C" tuning which covers the same range as a standard concert flute.
All the best,

I've been taking lessons for about a year on diatonic and would like to
get a chromatic to fool around with. I'd like to spend less than $150. Is
this doable? The price range and variety have my head spinning. Any
suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
