Found this cool book on dobro history. Published in 1991 by Bev King. It had that vintage fragrance!

I have two years of Resophonic Echoes magazine. 50 cents per copy.  1979-1981.  Bev King was a national treasure.

I’d love to borrow and scan those! I’ve been watching the auction sites etc for these too.

Bev was honored at the 2017 ResoGat. What a treat to get to jam with Bev and what a player! I will contact her and see if she has any of her publications still available. She closed her business several years ago but she may have saved a few things.

Michael, Oddly enough at the time of my subscription to Bev's magazine, I was living in Ayer, MA, close to your location I believe?

I was in the Coast Guard, commuting to Boston and playing my OMI I bought new in 1976. The reso bug bit me early!

Bev was kind enough to publish a fretboard chart that I (crudely) created in one of her issues.

Michael, wow yes, Ayer is literally 1 mile from my house.

Jan, I am an author and publisher of books on fly fishing history and DIY (reellinespress.com) and books about 3D printing (sublimepublications.com). I developed techniques to scan handwritten and typed works in order to republish one of my author's amazing books. If Bev is up for it, I'd love to republish her works as hardcopy or digital or both. She may have the original proofs, etc.

cheers,
Michael

I just heard from Bev and she appreciates all the nice comments from you guys. She does have a few copies of the magazine left and if anyone is interested in the Dobroist Scrapbook she does sell copies of it. She went on to say that she has an updated version from from the OPs post. Mark posted Bevs Country Heritage website address that you can order from however Bev said there was a problem with the payment method which doesn’t work but you can order from the site and she asks that you pay her through PayPal. She will give you the PayPal info when you order so be sure you give her your email address.
There are videos of Bevs concert at ResoGat but I am not certain where you can find those. I will try to track that down, it was an awesome concert and I would like to watch it again.

Thank you! I still have a number of issues of the magazine left, but mostly under the Country Heritage name (after 1982).

I reached out to Bev on Facebook Messenger on Saturday also and she returned my message with what's been said above. Nice lady and an inspiration to new players like myself.
