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!

the description in the ad said for larger handed players but it is for longer fingered players. This is 3/16" longer than the 925, it has a wider base and a wider top but the height is the same as the 925. I have large hands with large sausage fingers, while wider and longer were nice my main need is my finger and thumb are wider than this bar is tall making it very hard to keep them off strings. if this bar were 3/8" taller it would be perfect. wish they would give measurements in descriptions. !! I gave 2 stars for the poor description in the ad not for the bar itself, if the bar were built to fit my hands it would be great !! I would recommend to a friend if they had normal hands or long fingers.

      Same overall dimension as the standard Lap Dawg bar, except a little longer. It fits my long fingers and hand well, but if a longer one is available, I would like to try that.

        Comments about Dunlop Long Dawg Professional Steel Players Tonebar:

        Got this to use when playing my Rogue Lap Steel. Got the Long Dawg because my fingers are a little long, so this seemed logical to get. First time using a Tonebar as this is the first time that I have played a steel. Took a little getting used to, but the longer I practiced the better I got at handling the bar and getting the sounds that I wanted from the steel. Gets some great sustain when you learn to hold it and move it just right. Very satisfied with my purchase.

          Comments about Dunlop Long Dawg Professional Steel Players Tonebar:

          I use this steel for both dobro and lap/console steel. I noticed a definite improvement in intonation and comfort when I got this bar. The sound is nice. The finish is nicer/smoother than the Stevens that I had before. I need ticket another as a backup as I'm notorious for losing/dropping these things.

                Purchased with my first lap steel guitar and I couldn't be more pleased. This guy is super heavy and you can hear the improvement in tone. Once you are accustomed to its weight, you will love the feel and grip he provides. I recommend this slide for players with long and slender fingers for optimal control. Extremely satisfied with the quality. BUY IT.

                Comments about Dunlop Long Dawg Professional Steel Players Tonebar:

                There's truly nothing wrong with this slide. I am a novice lap steel player, and this is the first slide I bought. I read the reviews beforehand, and since I am a big guy, I thought this would be the perfect slide for me. Either the reviews overestimated the size of this slide or I underestimated the size of my hands. My fingers get too crowded to fit in these grooves. This is a nice slide, if your hands are average-sized, but those who have bigger-boned, wide hands like I do will have to buy something else.

                      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.
