“I love my Gazell Method harmonicas! The action on each harp is perfectly set up, and the valves allow for so much versatility. As a traditional blues player, having blow bends on the low end and draw bends up top has pushed me creatively and opened up so many fresh, exciting possibilities.”   Rob Stone

Gazell method harmonicas are currently available in three models.


The PT Gazell Model 1847 Noble, (the exact one I use) the 1847 Silver, and the Session Steel. The Noble and Session Steel are manufactured as in stock production models.  The default tuning is Richter. All models are available in the following keys: Low C through Regular F. The Silver will continue to be offered until the remaining stock is depleted. After that, the Gazell method Silver will be offered as a special order.


The Gazell method means your diatonic will be half-valved with the same material I researched, suggested to Seydel, and use in my personal instruments. The reeds are shaped and gapped to my specifications at the factory in Germany to best accommodate half-valved playing. The downloadable PDF below has the note layout and a more detailed explanation about half valving.


Both the Noble and Session Steel models feature the Gazell method full rounded cover plates.  The ergonomic feel and more rounded tone these covers provide, are a perfect match for half valved playing. The Silver has the half flat covers.


​All Gazell method diatonics ordered through this website are checked and further adjusted by me personally for optimal performance.


In addition to Richter tuning, I also offer two alternate tunings as an upgrade option:


Gazell method ~ Paddy Richter.. #3 hole blow note is raised by 1 whole tone.
Gazell method ~ Country Tuning...#5 hole draw note is raised by 1/2 tone
