Now that youhave mentioned it I have noticed that the Seydel’s decals are prone to rubbingoff. Fortunately I don’t use the Seydel that much so this hasn’t happened yetwhen it does I’ll need to buy labels for them. This makes mewonder did Hohner think of this in their early years or was it just simpler andcheaper to stamp the engraved logo and key signatures on them?Luckily, Idon’t have this problem with my Suzukis (which I have the most of) either.

 Dennis:  I play Seydel Session Steels (I also own some Hohner Special 20's) and have the same problem...... the LOGOS on the comb seem to wear off readily, and the NOTE STICKERS on the Seydels' fall off quickly as well.  It's a particular problem on the Seydels' since (unlike the Hohners) the KEY is NOT stamped into the metal, and then it's hard to (quickly) identify the KEY.  I also like the looks of the LOGO on the comb and am sad when they quickly seem to rub off.  Leonard

I got the Harmo Polar (the cheaper version) in G. The sound is darker than my Bluesmasters and doesn't respond quite as well, but it is a good harmonica and doesn't have sharp corners. It's just a matter of adjusting. However what really surprise me was the painted logo wore off in less than two days. Fortunately the the two gold key signatures haven't.

Just received one of these in the key of A.  Plays great out of the box, really bright on all 10 holes, regular bends very easy  and 6 ob easy to get.  I’m not a regular ob-er so can’t nail the others yet but this is as good asn out of the box harp as I’ve tried for a long time (and I’ve tried most!!).  B Sent from Mail for Windows 10
