This gets confusing...

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

All these years..(68 !) and I still hear different resos and the sound of them makes me wonder...have I found the sound I am always searching for...

Out of this..I have determined that the 'secret' lies somewhere between my actual playing technique and 'The Cone" !

I like the traditional sound as well as the modern sound in a reso. But as the years go by, I am inclined to prefer a more 'modern' sound since the cone to me is what produces what I like .

I know there are so many variables I could discuss, but the time has come to go with my instinct. My Appy reso is the best sounding of my five resos. I had it built in 2014 by Tom Warner with a 'Legend' cone at in the studio with ear phones going through the board, it surpasses all my expectations. It ia a curly maple guitar and along with the other four resos that I use in the studio, I am still at it after all this time.

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..
