This Tone Bar is very easy to use and it is nice and heavy. It works beautifully and it can be manipulated very easily without dropping it. I use a strange holding method. I've tried to hold like all the pretty white people that play these dobros or lap steels do, but I can't. So my method works just fine.

I have bigger hands so this is a little small for me, but overall the weight is right, nice smooth finish, needed to be knurled on to though for better control, it is a little slippery...

      Comments about Dunlop Lap Dawg Chromed Brass Tonebar:

      I am a guitar player, new to playing a lap steel. I tried to use a guitar slide to play didn't work well. The Lap Dawg works much better and has a nice bright tone to it. It is easy to hold and control. One thing that I must say is that it is hefty. Enough to make your wrist know that it is there. Also it would be easier to use if one end was curved upward slightly (IMO). On another note, I noticed that if I use a Mud Slide I get a mellower tone. This was also a good sound. Dunlap makes a Mud Slide Lap Steel tone bar. I have not seen one in any store.

            The improved design makes the LapDawg easier to handle for faster single note runs. Forward and backward slants become easier to manage cleanly.

            The end of the bar needs to be rounder...smoother.
            Possibly the lipstick style bar would be better. Or a bar whose ends are more rounded.

            Comments about Dunlop Lap Dawg Chromed Brass Tonebar:

            I am using this on my latest acquisition, a nice Joe Morrell Pro 6 string lapsteel guitar, and am getting great sounds using the tonebar.

            I had no idea the Tonebar would be as heavy and masssive as it is, and I've had difficulty using it and it quickly tires my left hand. I mentioned this to other players and they say that I'll get used to it, and that you want a heavy tonebar to give it solid tone. They also said most of the time the tonebar rests on the strings and it is often moved while resting on the strings. An observation of my friend's playing appeared to show exactly the opposite, with frequent moves of the bar off the string requiring almost constant lifting. Like anything else, I'm sure I will adapt to the tool and have no reason to think otherwise.

            This chrome-plated brass is quite beautiful to behold and if anything should change my initial opinion of this I will update the review.

                The weight is perfect. Very comfortable and gives (to my ear) a nice rich tone across the strings.
