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:

      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!

      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.

      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.

          Been using Lee Oscars since I first found out about them many years ago. Being able to replace the reed plates saves me a lot of money. When I first started playing, harmonicas were about 1/8th the price of today. Not the case anymore.

              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.

                I gig out all the time. I have to maintain an entire stable of harmonicas.
                These replacement reed plates are an excellent alternative to having to buy a whole new harp.
                For half the cost, you get a new instrument.
                Some assembly required :)

                  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.

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

                  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 .

                            I've been using and playing Lee Oskar Harmonica's since 1991. For years I've never had a problem with their harps or replacement plates. However, lately it seems that the quality differs from one set of plates to the next.

                            Recently I ordered G plates only to have them delivered and they were defective. Musicians Friend did the right thing and sent out a new set of plates overnight. Although not defective, these plates still seem to need to be broken in as they don't play that well. It it as if they are sticky? Maybe it was a bad batch?

                              The big question, as we all know, is do I choose Honer or Lee Oskar? I say Lee Oskar.

                              Oskar's reed replacement is a good idea. I like the feel and sound of LO a bit better and find them a bit more durable. But, I've always found harmonicas to wear faster than I think they should - so maybe its just a fault of my style.

                              Honer's still fill a few spots in my harp pack but as they wear out they'll be replaced with LO. Not that the Honer's are bad, and I can see some preferring their less bright, or more mellow sound, but though the years I've slowly migrated towards LO.
