Traditionally I have replaced the whole harmonica when they died, but with 3 dead ones at once the $12 savings each sounded appealing. Let me say right up front, these are excellent reeds and work as described. Be warned replacing them is more difficult that one would expect. The 3 screws holding the whole assembly together are REALLY tight to take apart and need to be REALLY tight when put back together. You will need a high quality phillips head screwdriver with a very narrow tip. A cheap screwdriver will bend before the screws strip. Conversely, the screw heads will strip if you don't apply enough downward pressure (while trying not to bend the delicate reeds!). It is a tedious, detailed little job and if you do it all correctly, everything is great, but there is lots of room for error here. An odd problem I encountered was the packaging. The reeds are sandwiched in hard plastic with an individual "pocket" for each AND a pocket for the 3 replacement screws. The sandwiching is loose and on 2 different packages the screws were rolling around in the pocket with the reeds and got stuck up under one bending it out of shape making it useless. Musicians friend replaced both promptly, but be sure to inspect thoroughly prior to installing or you'll get to do it all again. If you're not handy with tools spend the extra $12, get a whole new harp and save some money somewhere else. Give your old harp to a kid; they'll love it even if it's out of tune!

Took a long time to install, had to do several times as very touchy to get just right. Never sounded as good as original. Several holes stopped playing after a week or so. Will definitely never do this again. When you consider you're only saving a little, and may or may not work, it's better just to get a new harp that you know will work right.

I've blown up too many harps. I have swung a hammer since I was a toddler, so a mere 50 years. I play harp same stroke/psi- these replacement plates are a bank account saver!

    I gig out all the time. I have to maintain an entire stable of harmonicas.
    These replacement reed plates are an excellent alternative to having to buy a whole new harp.
    For half the cost, you get a new instrument.
    Some assembly required :)

      Appreciate the Lee Oskar design, that allows replacement of worn-out reeds, without the cost of replacing the entire instrument. I have done this a half-dozen times, and will continue to order reed plates from Musician's Friend

            Low F is a specialty key and I use it for specific purposes. Glad I ordered when I did. A one month back order is frustrating. Hope I don't have similar issues when I need to replace the minor key plates. (The minor keys are my favorites.)

              Reed was clearly damaged upon receipt. Don't know if its the non-protective packaging or violence during shipping. Not the first time this has happened. Can't you please bubble wrap these things? I've noticed that even when not damaged, product quality control seems to be down a little. Oskars are still the best option, though. Plates have good sound and outlast all competitive models.

                  had a bad #7 reed advantage of Lee Oscar is that they have a great price on reed plates not a bad harmonica, but I like Golden Melody's and the Bushman Delta Frost more for their tone and sound and find they are more air tight. Musicians Friend has good service and delivery is speedy.
