Lace pick ups....

Thursday, September 5, 2013

I find that to get the natural tone out of my resos...using Lace pick ups ...set the amps with all the controls on neutral. Then pick the top two strings and listen for the sound   You want by gradually increasing the volume control. Then dial in the tone you want starting with the treble...then the mids...then the bass controls. Then add in a little reverb to suit your taste if you wish. Of course each amp or board mixer will be you have to dial in what you think is suitable for the circumstance.. Try to get the exact tone you hear from the reso  and write down the settings for each reso. Because each one. Has its own voice... You may have to dial in  different settings. Experimentation will ultimately pay off. Strings will have some effect on this if you switch brands.

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..
