"The Chromatic DE LUXE STEEL is the 'little sister' of the SAXONY Chromatic and is equipped with SEYDEL's unique Stainless Steel reeds. The Chromatic DE LUXE STEEL is characterized by a brilliant and full sound through all octaves and a fantastic tone response, achieved by an extreme airtight and solid construction. The use of anti-corrosive materials for all parts guarantees a long service life and high reliability. Besides in the standard key C, the Chromatic DE LUXE STEEL is available in many other useful keys. Comes in Solo Tuning. 12 holes correspond to three full octaves, equal temperament, A4 = 443 Hz."
Dave Gage Thoughts: A solid 12-hole chromatic with an orange acrylic comb and stainless steel reeds with plates attached to the comb with screws. One of the disadvantages of the traditional pear wood comb is that after time, moisture can cause the comb to crack and cause air leaks. You will never have that problem with the Seydel acrylic comb. Unless you have a special purpose, you likely want to buy this in the key of "C", which is standard.
