Amplify your Dobro with Pride

I have a Dobro Hound Dog Deluxe roundneck that I tune to open E and play with a bottleneck slide. The pickup that came with it (a cheaper Fishman) was a nightmare to amplify. You really had to crank the volume to get anything out of it, and you had to dial the trebs down to 1 to keep audience members' ears from bleeding. Plus, it sounded tinny and metallic like a really bad, National Steel copy or a trashcan with strings.

This little beauty isn't cheap, but worth every penny and then some. I'd pay twice the price. I first, changed out the cone for a Quarterman, had a put on a bone nut, and then my luthier installed the Fishman Nashville.

Oh man, what a difference! Now, I plug it in (through an ART preamp to boost the volume a bit) with a flat EQ, and I get a sweet, fat, rich, woody tone. It really cries the way a Dobro should. I can now focus on playing my best without worrying about unwanted overtones or piercing, tinny highs.

A former bandmate heard it and was knocked out by the difference. "Man, what did you do to your Dobro?"

I have yet to record with it, but I expect it would work well for that too.

If you play a spider-style resonator, this pickup is a must. I would take it to a pro for installation, though, and although it's hotter than the pickup that came with the guitar, it's still passive and may need a little boost from a preamp.

I plan on getting another one of these for my Regal squareneck as soon as I have the bread. I may not play like Jerry, but at least I can approximate that tone!

Finally a resophonic pick-up with umf!!!

By Delta Mike Shaw

from Lodi, NY


  • Compatible W Live Band
  • Interacts Well W Pedals
  • No feedback
  • True And Even Voicing
  • Very hot


  • Difficult to Install
  • Tricky installation

Best Uses

  • Band Gigs
  • Direct In
  • Solo gigs

Instant gratification and wows through my Fishman SA 220 SoloAmp i.e True acoustic reso sound on steroids with no feedback at extreme volumes I would never never consider playing at. Then I plugged it into my pedal box and '64' Princeton at rehearsal with the band. This is the first time I was able express what I heard in my head with the full ensemble of drums, harmonica, bass, and keyboard. Again, NO FEEDBACK with a true reso sound. My band members were smiling last night. Sonic bliss. Thank you Fishman! Good-bye Barcus-Barry, Good-bye Highlander.
