Lap Slide / Dobro- can finally stand and amplify!

Postby 5_iron » Sun Jan 22, 2012 11:55 pm

I know there are some lap sliders out there so this may interest someone. I finally sprung for the Fishman Aura pickup and pedal combo. No more sitting or standing in one spot glued to a mic :D Plus now I can use some pedal effects if desired, and it'll cut through the band mix just fine. This is a Beard Gold Tone square neck...$800 guitar plus a couple hundred for the aura setup.

For jams and stage deals this really opens things up for me...so I'm pretty jazzed.

Here's Little Martha kinda' bluegrassed up...gives a feel for the tone. It'll do more bluesy stuff too.
