A unique instrument exceptionally well put together.
07.04.2017
A very unusual instrument part way between lap steel and pedal steel, more versatile than the former, and easier to move around (and much easier to play) than the latter!

Only alternatives are custom built instruments, which are even more expensive that this one!

Very well made ( as are most of Duesenberg's Guitars) and incorporating some neat ideas but still pretty expensive for what it is, but there aren't many alternatives!

Arrived very quickly in perfect condition, accompanied by the case in a separate box !

Die Laptsteel-Märchengeschichte
Robo, 05.09.2013
Elektrische Lapsteels wirken ja oft etwas unterbelichtet, einfach gebaut, meist nur ein Tonabnehmer, etc. Die Fairytale ist da ganz aus anderem Holz geschnitzt. Nein, sie ist eigentlich eine Fee unter den Schossgitarren.

Ein vollwertiges Instrument mit zwei tollen PU's, sauberst verarbeitet, klingt voll und punchig aber nie harsch.
Der integrierte Capo ist ein weiterer Clou. Die Details stimmen auch, so gibt es zwei Moosgummistreifen auf der Rückseite gegen ungewolltes Verrutschen auf dem Lap.

Aber der Hauptclou ist der Multibender.
Damit lassen sich pedalsteelartige Sounds erzeugen und der stimmliche Umfang einer Sixstring Lap gut erweitern. Ich habe gleich noch einen dritten Hebel geordert.
Es braucht etwas Übung, mit den Hebeln sauber zu arbeiten. aber das ganze System ist wie die Gitarre selbst sehr gut durchdacht.

Also Cowboys, zieht eure Steels zum Lapsteel-Duell.

Velká spokojenost
Bidlo, 19.02.2018
Jsem velmi spokojený se zvukem i zpracováním.
Pou¸ívám ji v hudb? Rock-country. Výhodou je osazení dv?mi sníma?i (singl a humbacker) a skv?lá multibender mechanika.
Nevýhodou je, ¸e v cen? není pevný obal a je nutné jej objednat samostatn?.
