That is how it should sound!

The Dobro Hound Dog is a very authentic sounding resonator guitar. Specially played with Slide or Bottleneck, their sound is fantastic for me. Middle, full of warmth, and especially with a very beautiful singing tone.

If you only want to play with the slide anyway, you can definitely decide for the Square Neck variant, which is then usually always served on your lap and with Slide.
Due to its normal neck, the Round Neck is also suitable for traditional chord movements. So if you want to make the country camp fire Schrammler, it goes quite well.
Quite good and not perfect, especially because my copy has an intonatory problem at normal mood. Until the 4th and 5th covenants, the unity of the chords is still quite in accord with chords, but then it is clearly audible. In open moods without Slide it is not quite so bad, but again, from the 9th Bund, it sounds very much like tuning. Overall, you have to be very careful in standard mood, and sometimes compromise. You can tell, that the home of this guitar is that slides in appropriate moods. I got myself an extra saddle for putting on the normal, which lets the strings get higher and play only with Slide.

The guitar is quite elegant, but it is quite stable and hard to build, but you can also pull the strings with high pitch. Also: this guitar is LOUD !! The resonator makes its principle as a mechanical loudspeaker all honor. I've never had a louder guitar in my hand.

The only thing I can completely dispense with is the built-in pickup. The bringts not at all. No matter what you connect it to, amp or mixer, the sound is tinny, and tends to quickly recouple. With a microphone in front of the resonator, it sounds wonderful and natural, but the pickup sound can be completely "in the tonne cloppen".
Therefore also no 5 stars with the sound and with the features, because you have to pay the pickup unfortunately synonymous yes.

This is also the only real cloud in the Reso sky. Otherwise a gigantic Reso guitar, as it should be, YippieYeah!

I wanted to have that

Now, of course, this resonator guitar is in the lower price segment. I had before the purchase however already times a copy of it in the hand and played. I want the sound. The price is portable for a resonator guitar with pickup. So I ordered some time later.

The first copy, the body, had originally been packaged but a scratch in the lacquer, was dusty lacquered and the strings were absolutely rotten. Thomann exchanged this guitar without problems and quickly.

Item 2 was now much better painted (not perfect), optically the part now looks really good, also had no scratches. The neck can be played well, the frets are not over. The mechanisms work cleanly and precisely. The strings, however, looked terrible again, the covenant and octave purity was creepy with these strings. The supplied EJ42 strings and a very slight correction of the neck curvature, remedied this defect.

Now the mood is perfect, fret and octave purity guaranteed, and the sound (without pickup) as I wanted it.

I also get the desired sound from the amplifier via the built-in pickup.

I am therefore very satisfied with the instrument and with the service of Thomann.
