The eternal question...what strings to use..

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

The last year has been an experimentation in the use of many different brands of strings. I find this useful because I have five different resos with each one sounding unique because of the cones installed in them , among other factors. Recently, I installed a set of so called 'boutique' strings made by Curt Mangan out of Cortez Colorado (866-463-2878) on one of my resos which has a legend cone in it. This guitar came alive with sparkling highs, brilliant mids and punchy lows ! If you get the chance, when deciding to change srtings, give these a try. You will not be disappointed. Curt

I am also on Facebook and Twitter. Check out my blogs on my home page.. Been playing Dobro since 1951..Stage,Radio, Television,Recording Studio,blues...folk,..rock. ..also pedal steel guitarist with 2 Sho-Bud heavily modified pedal steel single neck (3X8) OPRY Steel ( 10X8)..I.always reply to ...numerous recordings on private labels...since 1965 . 4 different dobros..1934,1982 2012..2014... Have not played pedal steel in over a year. Burned out after 55 years of playing it. Now concentrating on getting the best sound with my four resos...And how different cones react to different strings. Curly maple VS mahogany VS all others... This could take a lifetime !! Did Opry touring package shows in 1966-1967..
