Major Diatonic THE TRADITIONAL BLUES TUNING.
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.

Replaceable Reed Plates

Equal Tuning by Octaves
Excellent for single-note lead playing Why throw out the whole harmonica because one reed has become fatigued?
Lee Oskar provides you with a better option. Simply purchase a "new" set of reed plates and create a new harmonica at about half the cost. The original comb and cover plates are recycled into the rebuilt harp. This simple process involves only three screws and and two nuts and bolts.
Now that makes a lot of sense!
Replaceable Reed Plates in every key are an exclusive feature of Lee Oskar Harmonicas!
