Incredible For Playing Melodies In 2nd Position (cross harp). Melody Makersare 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 were missing on the Major Diatonic 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

 

Comparision:

Major Diatonics are key-labeled in 1st Position.

However when played in 2nd Position
the Key of the Harp is not the same as the key of the music.

Helpful key selection chartsare packed inside every Lee Oskar Harmonica.
