Product Description

The Dobro resonator guitar has been an American classic since its arrival in the early 1920's the Dobro Hound Dog Roundneck resonator guitar ups the ante with modern appointments. The wood resonator or resophonic style guitar became a national phenomenon thanks to Dobro pioneer Bashful Brother Oswald, who became the instruments virtual ambassador, performing it weekly on the Grand Ole Opry for over 60 years. The resonator guitar is still an iconic instrument for bluegrass and traditional American music. In the last decade, popular artists in country, blues, and bluegrass have rediscovered the beautiful and challenging Dobro.

Historic Tone With A Twist

In addition to the bridges ebony saddle which sits atop a maple base, the full warm tone of the Hound Dog Roundneck is enhanced and projected by a proprietary nickel plated Dobro cone with a nickel fan cover plate, round sound holes with screens, and classic f holes.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Best deal for quality dobro"
Sound: Loud sound as expected from a dobro. Love the mahogany for tonal woods though. I tuned the guitar out of the box and was able to warm to the subtle nuances of the guitar. Its more responsive than my Tacoma c1c chief, so the chords need to be played crisp. However, there is more give since the twang sound of not fully connecting on a chord sounds wonderful. Finger picking it still sounds great too. IpFor made in China and 350 bucks it is a great intrpodiuctpry real actor, the build quality compliments the hearty sound. Ease of Use: There has not been much of a learning curve from the acoustic or electric guitar. Certainly plays differently, but its all fundamentally the same and is a good option to addd strong rhythm lines on recorded tracts - or lay down ground work on new songs being written. Quality: Heavy, thick mahogany. Feels great in the hands - probably 3/8 an inch cut just judging from the f holes. It looks like the neck was attached, which is obviously pretty common not to have a one piece guitar. I can't imagine someone looking for an introductory dobro would be upset with this purchase new. Value: Certainly The Wow Factor: The unique sound - it adds another layer. Overall: Beautiful looking out of the box, action wasn't as high as expected - ready to play out of the box. I've been playing guitar daily(30min-4+hours) for about 4 years, and have been playing less consistently for much longer. This is my first dobro, I just play for enjoyment and not professionally - mostly blues/folk. That's my background for you so you have a better idea where this review comes from.
Style of Music: Blues/folk
