Heavy is a bit too... well, heavy.

Pros

  • Solid
  • Sounds great

Cons

  • Difficult To Use
  • TOO HEAVY

Best Uses

  • Pedal Steel

Comments about Dunlop Stainless Steel Pro Tonebar:

The "heavy" model of this tonebar might be best suited for a pedal steel. Using it for a lap steel as I intended is a bit tiring on the wrist, too slow for doing fast licks, and somewhat difficult to trill with.

It is a fine hunk of very polished stainless steel. And, I am absolutely in love with its tone.

Point is, you should get a lap steel bar with cutaways for your fingers so you can get that speed and articulation that a lap steel guitar thrives on. You wanna concentrate on what you are playing rather than how heavy the thing is to pick up.

It would probably be best to work up to a heavy, by training with lighter bars until you can whip this 11.5 oz beast around well. It is not heavy in the sense of weightlifting... just awfully tiring to play with for any real length of time, and simply too slow to really rip it up. Get a lap dawg style bar and you will be happy you did. (doesn't have to be that brand)

    Comments about Dunlop Stainless Steel Pro Tonebar:

    Wish Musicians Friend would give you the specs on these so you know what you are getting. I blundered on to the right choice for lap steel. I got the medium which is 3/4 inch in diameter, 3 1/4 inch long, and weighs 7.5 oz. on my cheap kitchen scale.

      Comments about Dunlop Stainless Steel Pro Tonebar:

      After years of playing regular fretted guitar, I recently decided to add the steel guitar to me arsenal. I bought this bar to go along with my entr level steel guitar.

      This works. It's small, but big enough to cover my 6 string guitar. It's smooth, slides along the strings quietly.

      It did take a bit to learn how to hold it, and maybe I am not using the accepted technique, but I have figured out a way for me to hold it.

      Nice!

      Comments about Dunlop Stainless Steel Pro Tonebar:

      Being new to a steel guitar, I didn't really know what I was ordering. I was looking for something a little bigger to fit my hand. This is more suitable for a pedal steel, but I can't fault the product. It's just fine. I think I'll order a Dunlop Long Dawg, seems more what I need for a lap steel!
      Features are fine. Not many variables on a piece of round stock with a bullit nose.
      Dunlop. Fine turning and good chrome plating.
      Good value for a pedal steel tone bar!
