OVERVIEW

Well-suited for blues, rock, country, folk, and jazz. They're more airtight, easier to bend, and better sounding than many harps. Modular design.

Built in Japan to his exacting standards and incorporating new techniques and materials, it was in 1983 that Lee Oskar introduced his new harmonica. The radically different harp design grew out of Lee's frustration with the lack of quality and consistency in the mouth harps of the day. The design also benefited from Oskar's insights as a seasoned recording and touring pro.

The Dane's Design
Central to Oskar's design is a smooth plastic comb that doesn't swell like traditional wood combs. Aside from being easier to keep clean, the plastic comb is impervious to the swelling of conventional harmonica wood combs that can tear up the player's lips. By making affordable replacement reed plates available, Oskar's harps can be easily refurbished. You no longer need to toss out a harmonica because a reed or two has gone south. Replacement reed plates are available for every model in the Lee Oskar harmonica lineup and installation is easy since they mount to the comb with just three self-tapping screws. The reed plates have wide chambers and narrow dividers for faster, easier playing. A precision-molded, recessed bed holds the reed plate securely to prevent air leakage and project a bigger sound. The corrosion-proof, stainless steel cover plates are also engineered for excellent projection and tone. (Replacement cover plates are also available.) Lee Oskar harmonicas are tuned to 441-plus hertz for a brighter sound. With equal tuning by octaves, Lee Oskar harps have excellent intonation for blowing highly articulate, single-note leads.

More Keys and Modes
Lee's innovation didn't stop with a better-designed harp. Recognizing the need for harmonicas tuned in other than the major and natural minor diatonic scales, he introduced the Melody Maker and Harmonic Minor series that make it easier to play melodies difficult if not impossible to play with a standard diatonic harmonica. Another indication of Oskar's hard-won knowledge as a touring pro: Each harp is clearly marked in bright white on both ends with its first- and second-position (straight and cross-harp) keys. Each harmonica box is color-coded according to its series and also displays its key prominently. If you've ever struggled to find the right harp on a darkened stage, you will appreciate this simple yet essential touch.

About Lee Oskar
Even if you don't recognize Lee Oskar by name, if you've listened to pop radio much, you've probably heard his highly personal mouth harp style on War hits like "The Cisco Kid," "Low Rider," and "Why Can't We Be Friends." Oskar's staccato phrasing and uncanny tone-put to great use blowing horn-like unison riffs with saxman Charles Miller-gave War's funky stew of Latino, Caribbean, African, jazz, rock, and R&B elements a distinctive lead voice. This was especially true after the departure of vocalist Eric Burdon. The former Animals singer had been a focal point for War on early hits like "Spill The Wine." The band's eclectic and fluent mix of genres proved a rich fount leading to a string of '70s and '80s hits, usually with Oskar's distinctive harp riffs providing the signature sound.

Designed by a master of the harp.

Just did a gig with my son playing guitar,me the Lee Oskar and my 12 year old granddaughter her first keyboard in public.It lit up the whole affair and of the 4 acts we were thanked profusely as the best and energized the audience who up until that were politely listening but with no enthusiasm. The party was a Taiwanese-American Society Annual dinner.Afterwards some of the earler musicians who were Taiwanese students at a local University clamored to have their pics taken with "the Rock Stars". It was the first ever so clear note that I played on the Lee Oskar that set it all off.Thanks and I am 81 btw.heh

Though beyond novice, I'm still something of a harp newbie. This Oskar was my first venture outside the Hohners and I found it somewhat disappointingly "weak" - though others might say "mellow" - especially compared to my favored Special 20's -

      I have three of these in different keys. G,C, D. I like the tone of these but my hands have a hard time holding these. the shape doesn't fit my hands very well. I like the fact that the reeds are replaceable. I haven't had to do that yet. But have taken the reeds out and cleaned them.

          Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Harmonica:

          I have been playing harmonicas since 1973. The first were Honer Marine Bands and Blues harps. Later I went to Special 20s. The problem was when they eventually failed I had no recourse but to replace them with new harps. I purchased my first Lee Oskar in 1991. I like the sound and how they hold up under hard playing. I also like the idea of replaceable reeds. As any harp I have used can get sticky, I keep 2 of each of the more common played keys available when on stage to avoid the dreaded missed note. I have all the diatonic keys, including the sharps and flats and some of the natural minor keys. I will continue to purchase the replacement reed sets as needed. They are a great workhorse for my style of playing.

              Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Harmonica:

              Just did a gig with my son playing guitar,me the Lee Oskar and my 12 year old granddaughter her first keyboard in public.It lit up the whole affair and of the 4 acts we were thanked profusely as the best and energized the audience who up until that were politely listening but with no enthusiasm. The party was a Taiwanese-American Society Annual dinner.Afterwards some of the earler musicians who were Taiwanese students at a local University clamored to have their pics taken with "the Rock Stars". It was the first ever so clear note that I played on the Lee Oskar that set it all off.Thanks and I am 81 btw.heh

                  Okay, so I'm not a pro harmonica player. I can't even call myself all that experience on the harmonica. I got a Blues Harp in the 90's, and I hated the way the thing felt on my lips (hard wood comb and extended reedplates). I played it a hand full of times and quit it. Last year, I wanted to learn again to accompany guitar and vocals. I got another Blues Harp, thinking maybe it was just not the right time. Still hate it. Bought a bunch of cheaper harps. Hated them. Then I got a Lee Oskar in G. LOVED it! Felt good in my hand, and the reed plate thing isn't an issue. So I got an A also. Then, feeling perhaps I should keep experimenting I got a couple of Big Rivers, thinking that the plastic comb would be better than the Blue Harp's wooden one. It was better on my lips, but the danged corners are too sharp for the way I hold a harmonica. So, back to the Lee Oskars! I have a Golden Melody on the way as another trial, but honestly, I don't expect much. I can see me just having a case of Lee Oskars in every key...and calling it a day.

                      Well made -- doesn't trap beard/mustache hair when played along with a guitar using a holder.
