Age explained his rationale for moving the discussion to its own section. His board, his choice. Seemed pretty rational to me, given the overall board is PRIMARILY concerned with SLIDE chromatics. He didn't ban discussion of the SLIDELESS chromatic; he just moved it out of the PRIMARY discussion section.

Thank you, Age!

I'm sure there will be a lot who like it but (for me) there is Zero attraction.
For that price I want a button.  But that's just my opinions of course.
Carry on............

Pricewise, you have to compare it to a Seydel Deluxe Steel, it's £40 cheaper. ;)

Very true, Keith. Technically speaking, the Nonslider IS a Seydel Deluxe Steel Chromatic, just no valves nor slide and with a quite, ahm, peculiar mouthpiece instead. :)

I really love my Nonslider. Since I have bought this harp I don't play my other harmonics anymore. I can take the harp and can start playing. No warming te valves, no cleaning of the slider anymore. And for me as a newbie on the chrome and as a pucker it is easier to play the Nonslider as to use the slider. So I'm happy with this harp 😃

Thought I'd share this combination where the Nonslider Chromatic can really shine: on a rack.

OKOKOK... As God once told Moses, You better print a retraction boy.
OK maybe not exactly those words.  However, I decided to take a closer look.
No wind savers(?)  That is perhaps a little appealing. But I still have issues
with the price. So until Seydel sends me a Test Unit I think I'll have to
live without one. No worries, I have Plenty-O-Toys to keep me happy. ;D

Nice playing Hein 8) - I think that the non-slider sounds more to me like a chromatic than a diatonic in tone.

I now have the Seydel Nonslider with the slider mouthpiece for the Steel Deluxe and there is no noticeable sound difference.  They are the same chromatic!!.  With arthritis in both hands, I find the nonslider to be less painful as I can balance te instrument with both rather than most of the weight on my left hand.  I've ordered a rake to see if that will help more.

Here's another setting where I kinda feel that the Nonslider can have its merits:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-WbJ5cjEL2Q

No fishing for compliments or likes, just trying to show what can be done on this peculiar instrument: the tone can be smooth, somehow like on a regular jazz chrom, yet you can also change and sculpt your tone much more than on a regular chrom. I think it's this malleability that I really appreciate with the Nonslider.

All the best to y'all!
Hein.
