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!

This is a follow up to my last comments. I've been playing harp since '72 and have tried everything out there. Lee Oskar is my all time favorite and I have been doing reed changes for several years (you have to have the tool kit). However, all of a sudden the workmanship is pretty bad and the offset and alignment is way off. You've got to be very lucky to get them playable. I just got two in terrible shape and one of them the misalignment was clearly visible through the plastic container. I sent MF a photo and after numerous contacts over the past three weeks nothing has happened. It's like they think I'll lose my resolve and just give up. What MF is good at is taking your money and shipping you product. Pity the fool who requires follow up service because they are really terrible at that. I'd steer clear of the reed replacement because before you know it you will have lost enough money that you could have bought a new harp. I doubt I will ever order a harp again (or anything for that matter) from MF. Go to a store where you can immediately try out a harp and make sure it's in tune and plays.

    Lacking smoothness

    Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Reed Plates:

    I have been buying this brand for over 20 years, love them, dependable, long lasting and easy to blow. I'm disappointed in these reed plates - don't seem to be the same quality as a full harp - much more difficult to play.

    Not worth it

    Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Reed Plates:

    See comments under features.
    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:

    I blew out my C harp and thought I'd try to repair it myself. I ordered the reeds and in about 5 minutes I had fixed the harp and now it plays like new. Just be careful when you are retightening the screws that hold the plates on. I held the unit up in the air as any excessive pressure on the reeds can cause them to go out of tune or become damaged.
    Well it seems like everythng is expensive these days, but it seems crazy that a harmonica, and/or set of reeds can cost so much to produce.

      Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Reed Plates:

      Harmonica reeds just wear out eventually. It's nice to be able to reburbish a good quality harp at about half the price of new one. I started playing Hohner and migrated to Lee Oskar because of the price. I've come to like to feel and tone of the Lee Oskar as much if not more than the Hohner.

        Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Reed Plates:

        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.

          Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Reed Plates:

          Replacing your own reed plates is extremely satisfying after the frustration of playing with fatigued reeds! It is easy but you must handle reed plates with care. If you can learn to play the harp, believe me, you can replace your own reeds!

          Installed with no problem and works as well as the original plates. Better than buying a new harp.

          Comments about Lee Oskar Major Diatonic Reed Plates:

          I've been playing Lee Oscars for 25 years, this is the first time I bought reed plates, and I will be buying them from now on.
          Very easy to replace.
          Could not believe how out of tune my harp was.
          When I started playing, a new harp cost this much, but if your comb is good, this is a money saver .
