[Harp-L] Tony Eyers Trio with the new Seydel Skydiver Tremolo
Fri Jun 2 11:49:35 EDT 2017
The Skydiver sounds great, but costs around $130 U.S. where the Hohner Echo Celestes are around $25 each. Guess you have to have the courage and $ of a skydiver to buy a set!
I've used the Celestes for around six years in the Irish Newsboys and have been very happy with them, FWIW. Have yet to have any problems with them. Just my .02 worth as a longtime cheapskate and lover of inexpensive but good instruments.

Tony Eyers wrote:"The tremolo is the most commonly used harmonica in Asia. The Asian
tremolos have a "dry" tuning, where reed pairs are tuned closely
together, in contrast to their European cousins, which generally have a
much "wetter" tuning. Tombo, the Japanese company responsible for the
Lee Oskar model, are the leading Asian tremolo harmonica manufacturer.
Seydel have now thrown their hat into the ring, releasing a high quality
Asian style tremolo harmonica, with stainless steel reeds. It's called
the Skydiver, the Tony Eyers Trio use it here for the tune "Mominette"
