Re: NGD Lap Steel ! (reply)
Lately I have been thinking about getting a lap steel. I may have gone mad, but it seems they can be had for pretty reasonable prices.

Re: 8-str OMI Dobro value? (reply)
Jim asked on one of the reso forums and got his answer. An 8-string OMI Dobro sold recently for $650, and I'm assuming this one is cleaner, but the ballpark high end seems to be about $900-$1100. The 8 and 10 string models just aren't...

8-str OMI Dobro value? (topic)
I just don't play this instrument much, looking into parting with it.  1984 OMI 8-str squareneck Dobro, was converted from a 10-string.  Easily reversible w/saved parts. VGC+ conditon incl OHSC, sounds/plays great.  Any/all thoughts on...

Re: Need advice on buying a resonator for "conventional" playing  (reply)
I personally don't like resos for strumming - not enough bass and too much treble - but I do sometimes put my Beltona tricone in standard tuning for fingerpicking. Also, my Republic Miniolian is strung with nylons in standard tuning,...

Re: Ready to take the plunge  (reply)
I agree it may be in the nature of resoponics to "gather" sounds, especially transient percussion spikes. I've played a lot more in a band context with my round-neck '34 Nat'l Style O mic'd [bottleneck style] than I have with any...

Re: Delphi Vintage Steel (reply)
Thanks Neal. The Bendaway will be home at the beginning of next week: I am really looking forward to it. I am wondering how it is going to compare with my former NRP WB Triolian. No 'hotrod' cone in this one, but on the other hand it was...
