Bev King  Dobroist's Scrapbook Book Reviews

Submitted by michaelmx (see all reviews from this person) on 8/13/2012

Where Purchased: Elderly Instruments

Overall Comments

This book is about all things Dobro: Instruments, builders and players. It contains a collection of photographs, short articles and reproductions of old catalog pages. According to the introduction by Ms King, most of the content of the book is reprinted from back issues of her 'Resophonic Echoes' and 'Country Heritage' magazines. Much of this material is quite rare and not found in other books. The topics covered include the history of resophonic instruments, short bios of some builders and players and concludes with a look inside the instruments. This final section includes some good setup tips.

Don't let the size and price fool you, this slim eight dollar spiral bound book delights, informs and entertains as well as any eighty dollar coffee table book. This book is by no means up-to-date, but it is a must-have book for any fan of reso guitars or collector of music picture books. I got my copy from Elderly, but it is available wherever quality music books are sold. If you don't have one, get one!
