"The SAILOR STEEL Tremolo is the first traditionally-shaped tremolo harmonica with stainless steel reeds and Richter-tuning. This traditionally built diatonic tremolo-harmonica has a divided plastic comb: four holes in a square correspond to one draw and one blow note.
If a single note is played two reeds that are tuned a little bit different start to operate together. As the result the floating tremolo sound is produced that grew into a typical stylistic element of many different kinds of folk music on the harmonica. The SAILOR STEEL Tremolo is well suited for playing melodies or chord accompaniment. If played with the Tongue Blocking technique both can be done simultaneously and then the full and rich sound of the SAILOR STEEL Tremolo reminds of a big styrian accordion." - Seydel
Dave Gage Thoughts: Tremolo harmonicas sound nice and don't require much technical ability to make music. They are very limited in what you can play unlike a standard diatonic or chromatic harmonica, but they do sound good, are easy to play, and make a great gift for an absolute beginner.
