The Lee Oskar Melody Maker Harmonica is incredible for playing melodies in 2nd position (cross harp). Melody Makers™ are one of the best harps available for playing standard, single-note melodies. They’re great for playing COUNTRY, R&B, POP, WORLD BEAT, AFRICAN and REGGAE.

This tuning makes it easier to play many songs…that can be difficult, or impossible, to play on a standard Major Diatonic…in 2nd Position (cross harp).

All of the notes that Lee Oskar are missing on the Major Diatonic range are right there on the Melody Maker™! These harmonicas provide a complete major scale, in cross harp, for playing exact melody without bending.

Yet, the draw notes can still be bent for that bluesy feeling!

Melody Makers™ are designed to be played in 2nd Position (Draw), not 1st Position(Blow). In 2nd Position, melodies can be played with an expressive, fluid style that is extremely difficult to achieve in 1st Position.

  • Model: 1910MM – Blue Label
  • Available in 5 Keys (Listed low to high): C, D, E, G, A
  • Manufactured by Tombo in Japan

1 review for Lee Oskar Melody Maker Harmonica

  1. Sid

    I have the Melody Maker in D, and it is combination of McCoy’s Country tuned harp and the Paddy Richter, plus another hole change. This harmonica was made popular by Lee Oskar. The overall effect is unique to playing in cross harp position. It plays completes two and half ocatves without the need for a bend in cross harp position. It is closely related to the Tony Eyers’ Major Cross Harp. The harmonica is named in its Cross Harp position.

    It has wide holes, plastic comb, 12 TET tuning, it is an interesting take on harmonica, and it opens horizons to different genres of playing music
