G. (from Wellington, NZ) about repairs required for a couple of recently purchased Hohners, I followed his advice and bought my first Seydel. I was so impressed that within a week I bought another one! In a word, they are superb. Over the decades I have played more than a few different brands, from my first Huang Star Perfomer to higher quality Susuki, Lee Oskar and Hohner. None compare with my Seydel 1847 Classic.
Seydel is the oldest harmonica maker in Germany. You can buy them in New Zealand through Shearers Music Works in Hamilton.
