D Major Diatonic Harmonica

 

 

The Major Diatonic harmonica is the most commonly used harmonica in the World and for good reason, its tuning make it perfect for playing Blues, Rock, Country Folk, Jazz and virtually any other style of music that you can think of.

All major 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 in hallowed company amongst the best harmonicas in the world, and that’s not just our opinion.

All over the world, Lee Oskar Harps are the choice of professional players.

You may not recognise Lee Oskar by name, but you’ve probably heard his highly distinctive harp style on classic hits such as “The Cisco Kid,” “Low Rider,” and “Why Can’t We Be Friends.” Oskar’s staccato phrasing and uncanny tone — put to great use blowing horn-like unison riffs with saxman Charles Miller in Eric Burdon‘s seminal band, War gave War’s funky stew of Latino, Caribbean, African, jazz, rock, and R&B elements a distinctive lead voice.

This was especially true after Eric Burdon’s departure. The former Animals singer had been a focal point for War on early hits like “Spill The Wine.” The band’s eclectic and fluent mix of genres proved a rich fount leading to a string of ’70s and ’80s hits, usually with Oskar’s distinctive harp riffs providing the signature sound.

Lee Oskar wanting something different from the harmonica and unable to find it in the other brands and models of the day, developed his own instrument with a host of innovations which he introduced to the World in 1983.
The new design also benefited from Oskar’s insights as a seasoned recording and touring artist.

Your new Lee Oskar harmonica should provide you with an instrument that will not only inspire you but give you a lot of musical pleasure.
