Heaven (clip) -- electric Scheerhorn -- Billy Cardine w/ The Downbeat Project

1:08 minutes (1.04 MB)

Here's another sampling of this elec Scheerhorn. I spent so much time experimenting with setups during the 3 recording sessions for this project that none of the tones really sound the same, but they are at least as close as I could get to what I wanted for the tunes. I backed off the overdrive on this one a bit.

Electric Scheerhorn -- Billy Cardine and The Downbeat Project

Hey reso-buds, there's been some talk in the past about the electric Scheerhorns and what they are all about.  Here's a clip of mine running thru a fender tube amp.  I've done a few different things with it in the studio, including mic'ing the instrument itself, which has an acoustic quality...nothing like a regular reso, but pretty cool for certain things and can be helpful blended in with the amp sound.  


This group, The Downbeat Project, is from C'ville VA.  They havent really gotten out and played too much, and their MySPace page is from 03, BUT were almost done with this record and looking forward to playing some next year, between Burners gigs and some other stuff I've been putting together.

Scheerhorn Guitar recording

OK now that it's under way, I'm working with Tim Scheerhorn & Randy Kohrs on a recording about Tim , his guitars & the effect it's had on the reso world. The proposed players are Tim Scheerhorn, Randy Kohrs, Rob Ickes, Andy Hall, Sally Van Meter, Lou Wamp, Justin Moses, Billy Cardine, Mike Witcher, Bruce Boughton, Jimmie Stewart & me. Only Scheerhorn instruments will be used, his reso-guitars, lap steel, the one banjo & the one flat top.Five or six cuts are being worked on now with the rest after the holidays. The players were told to bring any type tune they want, nothing barred.
