Mick Jagger has announced that he is launching his own range of limited edition harmonicas in collaboration with Lee Oskar Harmonicas. The Rolling Stones frontman says that he’s hoping that “some of them will get into the hands of young harmonica players who turn out to be the legends of the future”.

“I started to learn the harmonica after hearing the greats of the blues such as Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson”, adds Jagger. “Since then I’ve played harmonica on so many tracks and at countless gigs over the years. To now have my name on a range of Lee Oskar harmonicas is fantastic news”.

Oskar himself – best known as a member of the band War – chips in: “We are THRILLED to collaborate with Mick Jagger and WhyNow Music on this unique project. Why? Because of Mick, an artist I respect enormously”.

“When I started Lee Oskar Harmonicas in 1983, it was my dream to create harmonicas that would not only exceed my standards but also be embraced by other music professionals”, he goes on. “It is a dream come true that someone with Mick Jagger’s success and level of artistry chooses our harmonica system. I am honoured to be a part of this very special collaboration”.

A total of 2500 of the instruments will be available in ten different keys from next month, exclusively through the aforementioned WhyNow Music. Each will set you back £49.99.
