DO NOT BUY IF YOU PLAY CHICAGO BLUES!!!!
19.08.2015
Great sounding harp but totally USELESS if you play like Jnr Wells or Sonny Boy or any other blues harpist! You need the diatonic standard. I bought and had to change the reeds which requires three hands and tiny fingers!!!!!
ONLY BUY IF YOU KNOW IT IS WHAT YOU NEED. (NOTE; IT SAYS ON THE PACKAGE "NOT FOR CHICAGO BLUES" BUT THOMANN DONT SAY THAT. THEY SHOULD!

Ein neues harp-Gefühl!
Andreas A., 15.10.2009
Habe mir mal aus Testzwecken den Melody Maker gekauft, und das Ding hat in der Tat völlig neue Features! Man kann damit problemlos von der Dur-Tonart in die jeweilige Moll-Tonart übergehen ohne aufwendiges Benden oder sonstige Tricks.

Damit hat man jede Menge neue Variationsmöglichkeiten mit der harp. Zudem ist die Lee Oskar vom sound her meiner bísherigen Marke überlegen; werde nach und nach auf diese Marke umsteigen, zumal die Verarbeitung ebenfalls besser ist.

Das einzige, was man den Lee Oskar-Leuten noch stecken sollte: der haarfeine Spalt zwischen Abdeckung und Luftlöchern ist für einen Bartträger manchmal etwas schmerzhaft, wenn da nämlich ein Haar steckenbleibt, das dann beim Weiterspielen rausgerissen wird. Kann man allerdings selber mit nem feinen Silikonstreifen abdichten.

Attention: Melody Maker=accordage deuxième position!
Thom7429, 01.07.2016
J'ai commandé cet harmonica sans trop savoir quelle était la particularité de son accordage. Étant habitué à jouer sur des harmonica à accordage standard, je dois avouer que jouer sur celui ci me demande un certaine réflexion, et par conséquent je ne lui ai pas encore trouvé une grande utilité.

Pour ce qui comme moi ne savent pas trop la particularité de l'accordage du Melody Maker, voici l'explication:
le Melody Maker est accordé en deuxieme position (ce qui correspond à la tonalité de sol pour un harmonica en Do), donc voici les spécificités de cet accordage:

Harmonica Do Standard:
____1-2-3--4-5-6--7-8-9-10
S__ C E(G)C E G C E G C
A __D G B D_F A B D F A

Harmonica Melody Maker en Sol (donc 2eme position de Do normal):
____1-2-3--4-5-6--7-8-9-10
S__ C E(A)C E G C E G C
A__ D G B D F#A B D F A
donc un harmonica Melody Maker en Sol correspond à un harmonica standard en Do sur lequel on à la note La (entre parenthèse sur mon schéma) qui est présente alors qu'il faut faire une altération pour l'obtenir sur un harmonica standard, ainsi que le Fa# (trou 5 aspiré) puisque la tonalité principale est Sol. L'intérêt étant donc de pouvoir obtenir ces notes plus facilement, ou bien pour des morceaux ou l'on veut une mélodie douce et pure sans l'effet caractéristique audible de l'altération, donc peut être plus pour des ballades traditionnelles que pour du blues qui, lui, utilise abondamment le bending!!

Et voici donc un Melody Maker en Do:
____1--2--3--4--5--6--7-8-9-10
S__ F_A (D)(F)(A)(C)F G B D
A__ G(C)(E)(G)(B) D E A(C)G
donc ici on peut constater qu'on à:
1/2octave; 1octave complète; 1octave complète; 1/2oct
et les notes soufflées/aspirées inversées par rapport à un harmonica standard, qui lui, a trois octaves dont la première et la dernière sont à compléter par des altérations.

Sinon coté qualité de fabrication, aucun reproche à faire Lee Oskar fait de très bons harmonicas!!

J'ai enlevé deux étoiles, en attendant de trouver un morceau pour lequel cet accordage me sera vraiment utile!! :-)

Voilà, J'espère que mon avis et mon explication vous serons utiles. Pour les débutants j'imagine que ça risque de vous embrouiller la tête plus qu'autre chose, donc pour faire bref si vous débutez, prenez plutôt un accordage gamme majeure standard!!

Tolles Mundharmonika-Tuning für Irish Folk Musik!!!
irish-like, 19.11.2009
Die Lee Oscar Melody Maker haben eine fantastische Stimmung für Melodie-Spiel in der irischen Musik! Sie beinhalten eine komplette Tonleiter in der jeweiligen Dur. Das ermöglicht das Spielen von Einzel-Noten, was mit herkömmlichen diatonischen Mundharmonikas sehr schwierig bis unmöglich ist.

Ich benutze diese Mundharmonika zur Begleitung der Mandola oder Bouzouki. Die Stimmung der Melody Maker ist genial. Sie eignet sich super für Tunes und Intro´s oder Zwischenspiele in Irish Folk Songs.
Der Klang und die Spielbarkeit sind phänomenal! Auch Musiker die von Blues Harps her kommen werden sehr schnell mit der Stimmung der Melody Maker klar kommen.
