    Traditionally I have replaced the whole harmonica when they died, but with 3 dead ones at once the $12 savings each sounded appealing. Let me say right up front, these are excellent reeds and work as described. Be warned replacing them is more difficult that one would expect. The 3 screws holding the whole assembly together are REALLY tight to take apart and need to be REALLY tight when put back together. You will need a high quality phillips head screwdriver with a very narrow tip. A cheap screwdriver will bend before the screws strip. Conversely, the screw heads will strip if you don't apply enough downward pressure (while trying not to bend the delicate reeds!). It is a tedious, detailed little job and if you do it all correctly, everything is great, but there is lots of room for error here. An odd problem I encountered was the packaging. The reeds are sandwiched in hard plastic with an individual "pocket" for each AND a pocket for the 3 replacement screws. The sandwiching is loose and on 2 different packages the screws were rolling around in the pocket with the reeds and got stuck up under one bending it out of shape making it useless. Musicians friend replaced both promptly, but be sure to inspect thoroughly prior to installing or you'll get to do it all again. If you're not handy with tools spend the extra $12, get a whole new harp and save some money somewhere else. Give your old harp to a kid; they'll love it even if it's out of tune!

    Took a long time to install, had to do several times as very touchy to get just right. Never sounded as good as original. Several holes stopped playing after a week or so. Will definitely never do this again. When you consider you're only saving a little, and may or may not work, it's better just to get a new harp that you know will work right.

        Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Reed Plates:

        Sound great, play great. But a few issues

        First, the packaging. Mine arrived with one plate having slipped under the other, thankfully not damage as the little padding wedged between them.

        The two slots in the packaging should be seperated better, perhaps by a staple (Something Musicians Friend could do if so inclined...hint hint), or by a heat weld from the manufacturer.

        It really was dumb luck that they weren't ruined.

        The second issue is of course the screws. The "self tapping" isn't that great. The Lee Oskar site has a video on how to instal them, and yes they squeek the first time you put them in.

        Use a #1 phillips, anything else will likely strip the heads. A #1 may still strip the heads so be careful. I had one that was starting to stip, backed it out and switched it with another one that had already been put in place...that worked fine.

        Overall really like them

                  I've been harpin' since 1939 so I've had a chance to try most all on the market. Lee Oskar harps have become my first choice. They're durable, have a vibrant sound and respond well to personal techniques. Replacement reed plates are an added benefit for those who don't mind taking a few minutes to have a brand new harp for about half price. The key to easy installation of the replacement reed plates is to 1. read the instructions on the card that comes as the backing in the package and 2. Use a #1 Philips head screwdriver to avoid damaging the heads of the screws that fasten the plates to the comb. I prefer the short shank style with the large handle for good leverage.

                          I've used Lee Oskar reedplates for many years. Some perform very well, but a few don't seem to be gapped right, so they "stick" or don't respond well right from the start. I have to tweak these a bit--as I did with this set--but they seem to be OK now. I just wish I didn't have to mess with them.

                              Installed new reeds in Leo Oskar Harp and it still want play and took it apart three times and put it back together and still poor sound, very unhappy with new reeds.

                                If you tune your harmonicas, you know that eventually the reeds are shot. These save you a lot of dough if you play a lot. Lee Oscar harmonicas are up to $$$ now as are Hohner Special 20s.

                                  I've been a little disappointed in some Lee Oskar reedplates I've purchased over the last few years, but this one seems particularly responsive. I'm still surprised that the packaging is not very secure/safe for these reedplates.
