This is the difference!
Weight is attached to Sirius in order to add stiffness and mass inside the main body.Due to this, it is succeeded to create a sound that has never existed.
Harmonica contains many harmonics, and this harmonics forms the bright and flowery tone. Depending on the design of reed and the material and design of body, the ratio of this harmonics changes and it makes the sounds peculiar to each model.
Harmonica body with low rigidity such as plastics is characterized by light and bright tone emphasizing relatively middle to high range notes by the body vibrating and the element of harmonics that shapes the tone is absorbed. It also features a sound that spreads from the body that vibrates and sound like the entire instrument. Furthermore this bright tone is more emphasized depending on the shape of the reed.
On the other hand, since the body with a high rigidity like metal body is hard to vibrate, it makes sound without losing harmonics such as low note range. As the body does not vibrate, it is possible to obtain the sound from a small delicate to a big sound with core.Sirius is the ultimate standard of Chromatic Harmonica combining well-balanced sound that is thick with core and moderately spreading sound, which were developed by the reed design cultivated in Fabulous series and the newly designed weighted body.
