About This Listing

Seydel 16221 | 1847 CLASSIC - Wilde Minor Tunings - ideal for Rock in minor keys, Key of Cm

The special tuning Wilde Minor is directly derived from the Wilde Rock Tuning. Like the latter, the Wilde Minor Tuning enables the fluent playing of hard rock and blues rock licks, dedicated to minor-heavy pieces of music.

The 1847 CLASSIC in Wilde Minor Tuning is available in the most commonly used minor keys of Cm, Dm, Em, Gm and Am (labeled in 2nd position).

The key on the sticker describes the root note of the minor key played in 2nd position (more details, see below).

Features of the 1847 CLASSIC

full and loud, overtone-rich sound and extremely fast tone-response due to stainless steel reeds
very long durability - even when extremely powerfully played; stainless steel reeds and stainless steel rivets
less air-loss due to fine-cut reedplates; optimized flatness and extremely small tolerances between reed and reedplate
friendly to beards and lips; cover plates with rounded edges ,no cuts at the mouthpiece and ergonomically built hole openings and rounded dividers
the overtone-rich sound can spread out undampened, covers made of extra strong stainless steel sheet (0.4mm), opened wide at the back and crimped and therefore a good stability and rounded edges; special Will Wilde Logo on the upper cover plate
moisture-proof, swelling-free maple comb, sealed with multiple layers of food-safe finish

Both WILDE TUNINGS in detail:

Holes one to five are unchanged compared to the Richter tuning. Holes six, seven and eight have the same tones as those in chambers two, three and four (one octave higher). Hole 9 has the same construction as hole 2 (two octaves higher) and in hole 10 the blow and draw notes have been swapped compared to Richter tuning, so that the expressive bending in 10 is now a draw bending! This setup makes playing the minor pentatonic and the blues scale much easier: you don't need overblows/overdraws to reach the minor third and the diminished fifth in the upper octave. These notes are now easily playable draw bends.

In Wilde Minor Tuning, the note arrangement is the same, but all thirds of the blow and draw chords are tuned one semi-tone lower than in the major version (2,5,6 & 9 blow and 3 & 7 draw). As with all SEYDEL harmonicas tuned in Natural Minor, the key-label designation of the minor variant is based on the fundamental of the "Natural Minor" scale to be played in channel 2 draw (2nd position).
