          Besides the standard Marine Band shape, this holder does a great job on the Hohner Golden Melody.
          Those who have trouble loading a harp into the Lee Oscar holder are not doing it properly, for goodness sakes, don't go hacking off chunks of those industrial strength springs. (You might need one some night if you break a spring on your van on your way home from a gig!)
          1) Tilt the harp so that the top ridge at the back is under the top bar of the holder.
          2) Hold the harp gently at both ends with thumb and forefingers.
          3) Push the ends of the follower down with your middle fingers.
          4) Snap the harp in place with your thumb and forefingers. It goes in easily.
          5) To remove the harp simply reverse the process.
          I often change harps every number. No sweat.
          I just love this holder because, unlike the others that I have, it holds the harp very well and does not allow it to move...something that drives me stark raving mad. I have enough to think about onstage without having to worry that the harp will not be in the right position when I am ready to blow. Some of the reveiwers have written that the holder is too high and interferes with them singing into the mic. I do not have this problem at all. Maybe just a difference in styles. I highly recomend it.
          Worth every penny of the money MF charges for it.

          This looked like the answer. It's a well-made harp brace, alright, but the springs are the kiss of death. They're unnecessarily too strong! I had to cut off two revolutions of coil to make this product half-way useable. I'd go for a third turn except I fear it might make it too sloppy. The bottom line is, I can't switch harps quickly as I can with my old Elton brace. Not without almost standing on my head while struggling to insert a harp. I don't believe the Elton is being manufactured anymore. It was a great investment. With the 30 year-old Elton, I just pop the harmonica into my lips, open the clamp with my fingers and drop it in. That's about four seconds. It's puzzling to think that both Steve Earle and Bob Dylan seem to have no problems doing a harp-change with their own Lee Oskar holders. Also, I've noticed that my Elton is the exact perfect height for my playing. The newer Oskar, seems a bit high and needs to be bent and angled a tad to lose the extra height to my lips. In fairness, it's a sturdy harmonica-brace, very well-made and fitted with good wingnuts. Would I buy another one? I don't think so. My brand new one still hangs on the wall after two years; and five minutes'-worth of trying to use it. My Elton, hopefully, has another thirty years left in it. Too bad the springs killed the Lee Oskar unit. They almost had a great product.

                    i like it for the most part. it will only hold a standard size harp. i use a longer harp some times and it will not fit into this harp holder. i may not have bought it had i known that.The springs are "really stiff" also.

                      The Lee Oskar holder definitely does what it was designed to do...it holds your harmonica in a death grip. It is a bit difficult to pull down the bottom lip, but it can be done by holding the harp in your mouth and pulling down both sides equally. Other than the industrial strength springs, I have no complaints.

                      Upon first inspection, I felt this to be just another inferior piece of equipment. But I soon realized it to be well engineered, doing its job admirably. I've been playing the harmonica for many years and this holder is top notch. There is a learning curve for this product but once youget by that, it's clear sailing.

                      I read the reviews on this holder and I got kind of scared reading all the reviews about how strong the springs are. But I decided to just go ahead and buy it. And I'm glad I did. Yes they are a little on the forceful side, but as I was using it, the springs began to be easier to push down. Not sure if the springs are breaking in or if I'm just getting used to pushing it down. But it is the best holder I have ever used. End of story.

                      I have been gigging with this harmonica holder for a year now and it still works great. The springs are tight but you get used to it. My only complaint is that the wing and screw used for tightening on the right side weren't twisting right. They kept getting stuck. So I tried to take it all the way off but it absolutely would not budge. Eventually, I took it to Lowes and got them to cut the screw off and find me similar pieces for only a dollar each. Works great now!

                      I love the Lee Oskar Harmonica Holder, it is great and it doesn't move around when I'm playing guitar. The problem is when I try to put my harmonica in, it does kind of scares me because it looks like the springs of the holder will come right up and hit my fingers, but it hasn't happened yet. It is definitely the best harmonica holder out there.
