Thomann is the cheapest & most reliable outlet I have found for this product. I have tried many harmonica brands & Lee Oskar are, in my opinion the best value for money by a short head. Having said that, I have found that new plates are not always perfect & occasionally have a "sticky" note. I still think that the harmonicas & the spare parts are extremely expensive given the fact that they last such a short time. I have twice tried emailing the company direct to complain but have received no reply.
Firstly, Lee Oskar harmonica's are excellent value, they are loud, need less air, and make bending notes very easy. Secondly, the large Key Letter in white is clearly visable at each end of the comb in 1st and 2nd positions, this makes them extremeley easy to read in gig venues that are dimly lit. Thirdly, the replacement reed plates make these harmonica's very economical, and they are easy to fit. Highly recommended. I've used Thomann several times now, and each time customer satisfaction is their priority from start to finish.
