I have to agree. I don't play Lee Oskars because their sound, while good, is
not the sound I'm looking for in particular. However, I use harps in the
keys of A and D a lot and the back up spares i carry are Lees becuase I know
they will always be reliable. I haven't had a quality issue with one in many
many years. I bought two about a month ago and ...no problems. I wish MBs
and SP20s were as reliable.
