      The Dunlop Long Dawg Tonebar gives steel players with big hands their own version of the popular Lap Dog. Like the original, the Long Dawg tonebar is designed for progressive players and features a larger radius for added sustain and vibrato and a body designed for a more comfortable grip. The Dunlop Long Dawg delivers better speed and clarity for hammer-ons and pull-offs.

            I started playing my lap steel because I had wrist surgery and can not fret a six string. A friend told me about this type of slide and helped me pick it out. This works well for me as I have trouble holding a round slide.

            Comments about Dunlop Long Dawg Professional Steel Players Tonebar:

            I'm New to the Lap Steel and wasn't sure which Bar to purchase. I read a few reviews on Musician's Friend and Decided on the Long Dawg from Dunlap. Its nice and smooth and its Heavy, Which I think is good for someone just starting out playing the Lap Steel. I have a few slides that I play with my Guitars and they are just to light or I have to apply to much pressure to get the sound I'm looking for. But With the Long Dawg, Its pretty much just lay it on the strings and the sound is there. Like any thing it takes time and Practice. Give It a Try I think You Will like this Bar, It covers the Strings has a Great feel and does its Job. Enjoy!

              I own numerous slides. Always on the lookout for more steel guitar weapons. Length,shape,weight,balance all work great for me. For the price, hard to beat.

                Comments about Dunlop Long Dawg Professional Steel Players Tonebar:

                Bought the Dunlop tonebar to go along with a used Regal RD-30VS resonator guitar. I've played acoustic guitars nearly 40 years and this is my first real experience using a tonebar with resonator guitar. This Dunlop has nice heft, and it's easy to judge the position of the 'leading edge' by sight when playing the resonator; there's a subtle difference between the tone given by the large radius as opposed to angling it in the direction of the bridge. Although I'm still getting accustomed to holding the bar, it has a nice, sturdy feel to it, and it provides clear & even tone from the strings. For single-string work, this one has squared ends that can be used to perform pull-offs. As a new/learning resonator player, I'm pleased with the Dunlop Long Dawg Tonebar.

                  This slide is very good. I don't know a whole lot about what slides should be like, but i really like the added weight that this one has. I also like the extra length that this slide has because i have big hands. The tone qualitly is very good too. I dont really know what to say about this slide except for the fact that you won't be upset if you buy it. Its a good slide.

                  Comments about Dunlop Long Dawg Professional Steel Players Tonebar:

                  Pros: Well balanced, easy to hold, nice length.Cons: None yet.At 3 1/16" long, this bar is just right for my big hands. The wide top makes it effortless to grip, and it is perfectly balanced. I was afraid that reverse slants would be tricky due to the sloping ends, but that is not the case. It's very easy to quickly get a grip on it in almost any position. It may take a bit of getting used to since the sloping ends make it feel shorter, but the playing advantage they provide more than make up for that.
