Best Choice.
Gaz., 28.05.2013
I play Harmonica with The Sunny Day Blues Band so I get through quite a few harps.
Over the years I've tried more expensive makes and models, with stainless steel reeds, valved, wooden/aluminium combs etc, hoping they will be better and last longer, but have always been disappointed with the results.
In my opinion, Lee Oskar's are the best value for money harps you can buy off the shelf. They are loud, have good tone, fast response and one of the easiest of harps to bend notes, so I especially recommend them for beginners.
The only other harmonica that I use regular is the Hohner special 20, which is very similar in all aspects mentioned, but the replacement reed plates that are readily available for the Lee Oskar, makes the Lee Oskar more economical.

First time to play Lee Oskar
TerryBull, 01.12.2020
I have been learning how to play the harmonica for a couple of years, so by no means am I an expert. This is my first Lee Oskar and at first glance it looks similar to the Hohner special 20 - similar price and build quality. In my experience it needs a little bit more air than the Hohner Special 20, but otherwise great sound, well made and you can be sure I will add more to my collection.

Good Sound
Nomad Z, 20.10.2014
I had a cheap diatonic harmonica in G for years and only messed about with it without really learning how to play. When I decided to take things further, research suggested that the Lee Oskars were good quality and maybe a bit easier for learning how to bend notes.

I can't comment on the ease of bending because I haven't tried any other good quality makes yet, but I am now able to do bends fairly well (and getting better the more I practice). However, the thing that stood out the most with the Lee Oskar compared to the cheap harp was the sheer volume and responsiveness. It is far louder, much more responsive, and brighter sounding. It's as if the cheap harp has something added to the reeds make it sound dull and lifeless. Although I'm by no means a serious harp player, I would not buy a cheapie again - even if just playing for fun, a good sound can make a big difference.

One thing I'm less keen on with the Lee Oskar is that I get some discomfort in my left hand, between the thumb and first finger, when using a microphone. It seems to be the edge of the comb at the end, which is quite square. It could be the way I'm holding it, but I note elsewhere that someone else took to sanding down the edge a little to make it a bit more rounded. I take this to be simply due to the shape (or maybe my technique) and not something specific to Lee Oskar. For my next harp, I might try one of the types with full width covers that have more rounded ends (like a Seydel Session).

Another plus point for the Lee Oskars is that repalcement reed plates are available for about half the cost of a new harp.

Overall, a very good harmonica which has inspired me to play much more than the cheapie ever did.

Great Harmonicas
Fourwinds, 16.09.2020
Got a few of these harmonicas now and although they can be relatively pricey they play and sound fantastic. The tone is clear, sweet and true. They sound great whether you are a blues player, rock n roller or a pop/rock player. When I first started using them my brother asked me if I had been taking lessons, I hadn't, they just sound better than most of the other harmonicas I had been playing. They are also really well made, I believe that all the parts are replaceable and for the money you won't get a better sounding or playing harp.
