Slab cut Walnut DeNeve

I got yet another DeNeve in the mail the other day...This one is a slab cut black walnut deal with 1/4" thick top and back, and 3-1/4 body depth...Gorgeous thing, with a real "contemporary" sound. It has less "twang" and more subtleties of tone, like a Beard or 'Horn. I had Dick ship it to Paul Beards on the way out to have the Aura stuff put in.

This is the 8th DeNeve I've owned over the years, the first few sounded really good, but were still sort of "rustic" in appearance...the later ones have shown a drastic upgrade in craftsmanship and appearance, and the sound is outstanding. For $1450, far and away one of the very best values in dobros.

So these city slickers came to the island looking for actors to be in a "movie", and I got signed up.
I play the uncle, the bride, and the dobro...hope you get a laugh!



DC Area Reso Gathering

In the event that the calendar posts get filtered out in some peoples views, I though I would post this here too.



Hey folks, a few of us DC folks are looking to put together another dobro gathering that I will be hosting. We've done this event twice before, with the idea to get a bunch of different resos in the house to sample and A-B. Lot's of fun. Last time we had 30+. The first one was written up nicely by Howard Parker on Reso-Guit.


Well were looking to do it again. At least three of us are in, and our instruments include 5 Scheerhorns, 2 Harpers, 2 Deneves, a Regal roundneck (modern), 1 Leadbetter Dobro 7 string. There should also be a handful of weissnborn style instruments and maybe an electric or two. I think I also a commitment from a 4th player who has a great 1930s Regal. The last gathering around 4 years ago even included special guest Mike Auldridge.
