Does anyone here know of links and videos to hear Appalachian Dobro's being played and recorded well, and how they sound in a group and such?
I've been looking and it's hard to find them.

Are you looking for the Tom Warner or Tony Langley built Appalachian guitars? Tom’s come up every once in a while but I don’t know if I have ever seen a Tony built Appalachian ever being sold other than by Tony himself.

Here is a video of James Kerr playing the myrtle Appalachian Tom built for me. I sold it to him last year and man can he make it sing.

Enter "appalachian dobro" in the search box at I have a source for a good video, but I'll have to get the player's permission to link to it.

I'm confused - are you saying the source for the good video isn't on YouTube?

Yes, that will keep you busy for some time.

I have a relatively new Appalachian guitar. Would be happy to record something for you if you reach out to me.

Like jmike suggested, enter Appalachian dobro or Reso on YouTube search and there’s many to listen to. I played one at a workshop years ago and thought it was great. Keep in mind that what you’ll hear in the videos is influenced to a great extent by the style and hands of the player as well as the acoustics and recording gear. There is no substitute for trying one yourself. Overall, I think you will hear that the Appalachian is capable of sounding great.
