Medford, OR (PRWEB) June 27, 2008
Online music gear retailer Musician's Friend is collaborating with harmonica legend and manufacturer, Lee Oskar, to launch a commemorative harmonica set marking his company's 25th Anniversary. Musician's Friend is offering a pack of five, major-key, diatonic, gold-plated harmonicas(keys of A, C, D, F, and G) packaged in a wooden, velvet-lined, black lacquer box. They're engraved with Lee Oskar's signature and Oskar's CD, Collection, is included free. The deluxe set is available only at Musician's Friend, which coincidentally is also celebrating its 25th Anniversary year.
As the harmonica player in the chart-topping band War, Lee Oskar developed a unique tone that made hits such as "Low Rider" and "Cisco Kid" instantly recognizable. In the 1980s he joined with Japanese harmonica manufacturer Tombo to improve upon harmonica designs creating a line of harps that provide consistent performance, brighter tone, and are easily refurbished by using replacement parts. The Lee Oskar/Tombo harmonicas have since earned a reputation for their consistent quality and superior playability as witnessed by their use by artists such as Dan Aykroyd, Van Morrison, Beck, Clint Black, and Junior Wells. In addition to the complete Oskar set, Musician's Friend also has available a single Oskar 25th Anniversary Harmonica in the key of C.
Lee Oskar harmonicas incorporate an innovative, airtight design that maximizes their sound with more flexible reeds that make them very responsive and easier to play. Oskar's harps permit smooth note-bending, while their covers and reed plates are simple to remove and replace with the Harmonica Tuning and Tool Kit, making it practical for harmonica players to recondition their harps rather than discarding them when they develop bad reeds.
