Resonator Guitars, Slide Guitars & Dobros
   


Diddlebow The DIDDLEBOW and comes from the mountain folk. We don't know how far back. The Mountain folks are very inventive and come up with so many instruments which we are still finding.

This one is a one string steel guitar. It is 30 inches long by 1- 1/2 wide, two feet on it so it can set on the a table. It has one geared guitar tuner on one end and a single string is ran across the body through a tin can which is the sound resonator.

You can tune to any pitch. you use a metal or glass slide just like a steel or dobro guitar uses. You run the slide up the string and get a beautiful slidding sound used a lot in playing the Blues music and Country music. As you move the slide up the string, you will go through all notes in a chromatic scale just like a guitar scale.

There is no note you can't find.

Small enough and easy to carry. Try one you will enjoy
