I've purchased harmonicas from here a few times; every time it came in perfect condition. Very happy with service!

Google ReviewArturas VaitkusReviewed 26/03/2023

Excellent customer service! My recent purchase required a couple of alterations in details and they were very responsive about it. Despite the changes in the order, the item actually arrived earlier than expected!

Lee Oskar Melody Maker Harmonica

£34.49

6 Keys available

The Lee Oskar Melody Maker harmonica is designed for playing melodies in second position that would otherwise require bends or overblows on a standard Richter tuned harp. Melody Maker tuning raises the 3 hole blow note 1 tone and the 5 draw note 1 semitone, allowing for the complete major scale to be played without any special techniques. Lee Oskar Melody Maker harmonicas are part of the Lee Oskar range of modular diatonic harps, made in Japan by Tombo. All parts are interchangeable with other Lee Oskar harmonicas, and replacement reed plates are available for all keys and tunings. The Melody Maker tuning makes this harmonica perfect for reggae and country music, but it also works incredibly well for blues, where the modified note layout enables easy access to certain bends that are difficult to achieve on standard Richter tuned harp.

The Lee Oskar Harmonic Minor tuning has a very soulful, Eastern European sound and was used for one entire side of Lee Oskar's highly acclaimed first solo album. This harmonica is tuned to the harmonic minor, which is mos prevalent in traditional Eastern European, Gypsy and Asian music. The harmonic minor differs from the natural minor, which is more commonly used in Western music, in its seventh scale degree, which is raised by a semitone. As an example, the E natural minor scale uses the following notes: E-F♯-G-A-B-C-D. The E harmonic minor scale is virtually the same, but with a raised seventh: E-F♯-G-A-B-C-D♯. That is to say, the seventh note in the scale is raised by a semitone, from D to D#. The effect of this small change is quite considerable; the raised seventh provides a distinctly Eastern sound, and makes this tuning perfect for playing traditional Eastern European and Asian folk tunes. Conversely, it is not generally recommended for blues players, who will be better served by major diatonic or natural minor tunings Lee Oskar Harmonic Minor harmonicas are labelled in first position and are designed to be played in this position primarily. Model: 1910H - Yellow Label Available in 12 Keys (Listed low to high): Gm, Abm, Am, Bbm, Bm, Cm, Dbm, Dm, Ebm, Em, Fm, F#m Manufactured by Tombo in Japan About Lee Oskar Lee Oskar is widely regarded as one of the world's finest harmonica players, and since the 1980s has been collaborating with Tombo of Japan to produce a range of modular harmonicas, of which this model is one. Lee Oskar harmonicas are unique in that their modular design enables any set of reed plates to be used in any of the harps. Although this approach has been imitated by other manufacturers, such as Hohner, with its MS Series, none offer the range of tunings that Lee Oskar does.... Read more
