The TurboSSS is a Seydel Session Steel Blues Harmonica customized with TurboLids. The TurboSSS features corrosion-free stainless steel reeds, ergonomic TurboLids, and plastic comb. We trim down the Seydel Session Steel body in order to fit it in our custom Turbolids.
- Smooth ABS comb
- Recessed German silver reed plates
- Stainless steel reeds (last longer than brass)
- Finely-cut reed plates for optimized flatness
- Quality harmonica made in Germany
- Clear, full, bright sound for a traditional blues sound
Designed with musicians of all playing levels in mind, the TurboSSS's shape is defined by our TurboLids which makes it impossible to accidentally play your harmonica upside down. You can easily find it on a dark stage and won’t crush in your back pocket. With the variety of colors available, you can have a different color TurboSSS for each Key you need.

About PowerBender Tunings
Invented by famous harmonica player Brendan Power, PowerBender Tuning builds on the best parts of the traditional Richter Tuning while altering the scale to make the real juicy and important notes much easier to obtain throughout the whole three octave range.
- Same familiar breathing pattern in the upper-middle registers
- All draw notes bend everywhere, holes 1-10
- On the un-valved version you can overblow every hole 1-10, for full chromatic playing
- Overdraws and blow bends are no longer possible or needed on a PowerBender - they are replaced with simple draw bends
- On the half-valved version, a mix of normal draw bends and valved blow bends gives full chromatic-ism
- Top octave easy to play (intuitive) as many familiar phrasings can be adopted from the bottom octaves
- Easy to play in the common positions: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 11th, and 12th
