Harmonica Racks, Harmonica Holders
Playing the harmonica with a harmonica rack can be a very enjoyable thing - guitar/harmonica is a wonderful way to play - and so is piano/harmonica, drums/harmonica - really anything that doesn't make your head stay in one place!
But the harmonica rack's comfort and responsiveness is a very important thing.
The Lee Oskar harmonica holders are great - especially if you are mostly playing 10 hole harmonica. If you are only going to play 10 hole harmonicas, then the narrower (Lee Oskar) size is best.

You can get wider harmonica racks that will accommodate more holes, such as to fit the Steve Baker Specials (GREAT harmonicas!)

A few tips on harmonica holders (neck racks):
Try to get one with TWO wing nuts or tighteners - they are easier to tighten down.
Never let someone grab the rack and pull it down when the wingnuts are in the tightened position - this strips the screws, making it virtually useless. (Perhaps you might find this a problem with frenzied fans frantically fighting for a souvenir).And be sure you don't do this yourself by accident, ok?
See, if you can't tighten the screws down all the way, then you are going to "lose" the harmonica right in the middle of a song
- it'll be too far away for your mouth to reach it while you are playing - not a good situation!
Also, get the harmonica holder positioned correctly before you start playing your song - its easy for it to be off to the side a little bit and then you won't be able to hit your notes quite right when you want to.
