Subject: Tech: dobro strings?
From: BK
Date: 22 Dec 02 - 05:06 PM

Just got a new round neck spider bridge "dobro" (generic; resonator guitar); it sounds fairly sweet as is w/the original factory bronze strings still pretty fresh. The trebles sing out better than the base (wound) side. anybody have any experience w/resonator guitars & advise on strings? I like simple fingerpicking, doubt if I'll try "bottle-neck" any time soon... What abt very bright, vs phosphor, bronze - or monel? stainless? "white" bronze? banjo strings?

Advice??

Thanx, & cheers, BK

BK,

Rick Fielding put my sister on to some strings that are designed specifically for dobro. They are made by Newtone, who make the best banjo strings that I've tried. They have two styles, National and Blues Master. Check them out here: 12th Fret

Rotosound "Country Gold" strings seem to sound OK on mine. They're very "twangy" strings anyway, so that's fine for a resonator. They're not ideal for slide though - the wound strings have thick windings which makes for big ridges and therefore a lot of string noise.

Steve & Graham; Thanx for the info; I'm (at best) a simple fingerpicker & strummer, so slides are not in the card for me anytime soon - if ever.

Cheers, BK
