THE TRADITIONAL BLUES TUNING

Keys: A, Ab, B,Bb, C, D, Db, E, Eb, F, F#, G, LF, HG

The Major Diatonic harmonica is the most commonly used tuning for playing Blues, Rock, Country Folk & Jazz.

Major Diatonic harps are produced by several manufacturers using various names such as Blues Harp, Marine Band, Golden Melody, Big River, Special 20, Pro Harp, Folk Master, Star Performer, etc.

Although the cover plates are stamped with a variety of different names for marketing purposes, all of these harmonicas have the exact same notation layout as the Lee Oskar Major Diatonic.

The most important difference is in the quality of materials, construction, design and sound. Lee Oskars are the best harmonicas in the world, and that's not just our opinion.

All over the world, professional players prefer Lee Oskar Harps over any other brand.

Pleasantly surprised.

I've tended to write off LO harps because of the low price. I needed a lowF harp for a piece on the David Barrett site so I ordered the LO low F. Ron got it to me in 24 hours-not sure how he does it. Well I was very pleasantly surprised by the harp. I was all ready to start taking it apart and gapping etc, but it played great right out of the box across the whole harp plus all draw bends. I may have to start considering LO more seriously now Dan

Workhorse harps for all players

I was cruising around the site here and was surprised to see that no one had written a review for the venerable Lee Oskar harmonicas! So here's my take: I have a couple in standard Richter tuning, plus one of Oskar's Harmonic Minors in A (a gift from my wife, who somehow managed to connive with Rockin' Ron to keep it a secret until she'd gotten it and gift-wrapped it). I'm holding off a star, i.e., just giving the harmonica four stars, but for just a couple of comparative reasons. E.g., the tone isn't quite what Hohner has done with the Crossover (at a bit higher price, of course); unlike Seydel and Hohner, Oskar doesn't do any low tunings other than low F; the "Melody Maker" comes in only limited keys that don't include my most commonly used ones, Eb and Bb, so that instead of Oskars I have the Seydel "Melodic Maker" in those keys; and durability isn't what you get with Seydel's stainless steel reed models (again at a higher price, of course). That said, what Lee Oskar arranged with Japanese maker Tombo during an era when Hohner's quality control wasn't quite up to what folks like Steve Baker and Joe Filisko have now helped Hohner get back to, remains a dependable substitute, and a product that Oskar himself still monitors closely. The Lee Oskar 1910 works in any pro's gig bag as well as in any beginner's collection. (A perfect good-quality playable starter instrument.) Quality is consistent, tone and volume across the reeds is consistent on each harp, playing comfort is really good, and the Lee Oskar is a really good value, priced in the same range as the Hohner Special 20 or Seydel Blues Session. Plus it's easily player-serviceable, with replacement reed plates available in all keys. And one last thing: While I'd hope anyone buying a Lee Oskar orders it from Rockin' Ron, except for the keys and tuning all Lee Oskars are exactly the same, which means that authorized dealers don't need to invest a ton of money to have good stock on hand. So if you're on the road and need a diatonic harp in a standard blues key within, say, the next 45 minutes, you can pick one up at most big-box musical instrument stores. The Lee Oskar is like the Ford 150 pickup truck of harmonicas. Gets the job done without being flashy. If you've always stuck with another brand, pick up a Lee Oskar 1910 in a key or special tuning you don't already have in your harmonica case. You definitely won't regret it.
