    The "biscuit" of resonator guitar is an Epiphone, Acoustic.

    UTILIZATION

     Is the neck  enjoyable?
    Very comfortable for my small hands it is a pleasure. It is true, I do not like the "logs" is a matter of taste but also in morphology.
    Basically, the "Cookie" allows efortless ¨explosions¨of the notes.
    With a bottleneck, the narrow neck needs attention, but also settle the original action because it is too low .. (well it did for me was the era) .. .

    Basically, the "Cookie" allows efortless ¨explosions¨of the notes.
    With a bottleneck, the narrow neck needs attention, but also settle the original action because it is too low .. (well it did for me was the era) .. .
    - Access in high notes (last fret) is it easy?
    Not much but I would obviously not. It's like any non-cutaway, there is no Access in last fret over highway ...
    - Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
    The instrument is very comfortable and lightweight. I would say that of course, you feel good on the biscuit.
    The body is less bulky than a fender 50 Fr (for comparison in the same price range). The instrument remains prs body and personally (always a question of morphology) that suits me perfectly.
    - Gets it easy to sound good? ...
    Ahh the question! Our answer this question when talking about a  resonator guitar is not obvious, so if in addition we talk of a new instrument 400 Euros, well ..... it not obvious at all!
    To begin we must say that when you buy a Reso is not bought an acoustic guitar! The sound is very particular.
    Some of my friends (sales in stores specialiss), criticized the Biscuit, but I enjoy reminding them he does not play this type of instrument Bluegrass ....
    Reso I would say that, in general, transforms your playing ..
    You can play it as a folk, but if you get to see it as something alternative.
    To summarize the sound of a reso, it's a casserole! after you had to see what you want to do .. or what he will do to you!
    Cookies fully meets for its price, demand.
    Ds its grip we feel that he has the personality .... but of course this can not please everyone ...
    In this price range I prfr to FR50 (acoustic) and other Johnson, Samick ... etc. ..
    Precisely because of its handling one feels that he has the personality and the more the more he plays rvle ..
    The bass is deep enough but mostly dirty, and if you start to play a plan to the "Dallas" by Winter or "Bordertown" by Chris Whitley one can easily be fooled  considering the price of the cake, er of the Biscuit!
    But hey, this is not a national either ..
    To summarize I would say it is less easy to play at the beginning, that  mentionnedcompetitors , but it is for me the most burned.
    I give it 7 because it is not obvious at first to get out the substantial marrow ...

    SOUNDS

    - Appropriate are your style of music?
     Having a "powerful"  folk style i logically leaned, a few years ago toward resonators guitars. And it was love at first sight!
    The Biscuit, which was my first rso, accompanied me to the south!
    Today (and even if I have a gibson dobro) is still on many compositions, although I do not use anymore with Bottleneck ...

    - What are the sounds you prefer or hate?
    I would sayi had fun without  Bottleneck because its dirty sound respond very well when I dig in .. (so to speak!).
    It has a well has it, and that's what I was looking for.
    With a Bottleneck, it's responding to requests.
    However, if you are looking for a tool exclusively for slider, it will be useful at the beginning, but not in the long run ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    - How long have you use it?
    3 years (already?)
    - What is the particular feature you like best and least?
    I love his size and his personality ...
    - Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
    Yes almost everything those available in this price range ..
    - How do you report quality/price?
    The quality/price ratio is excellent for me (bought 325 Euros), because even if over time, we realize the lack of definition in the slide, its endearing personality makes it up ..

    - With the exprience, you do recommend this choice? ...
    Yes, I would do it again because  both for beginners in bluegrass, or a seasonned pro who  does not want to ruin himself for a second résonateur, it has the advantage of offering a real alternative in this range Price ...

    Purchased in USD. Trs hard to find in France.
    For the price really looks like a cel Dobro (nothing to do with its competitor Fender).

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is comfortable trs. It is not as certain standard dorbro, not tiring to play.
    CHAC is the acute nikel. We could not ask for more for the price.

    SOUNDS

    I play blues, folk ..... I also use it in the studio.
    It even competes with big ERRF.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have 3 years. I like his sound. "I had tried before at the Gibson Dobro of the era but not the means ncessaires dobro I bought this because it was similar to those that made me drool.

    - Made of Core
    - 19 boxes, the 12th round bead
    - Channel through
    - Mcaniques that do not move trs

    Note trs a good quality of manufacturing: the finish is impeccable, nothing Exceeds, no apparent default. on the other hand, classical default: the NEC is a nest fingerprint but is not really his fault.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is in the middle: the shredders will be difficult, but a dobro is not for a, and find a rhythm stick trs enjoyable use. on the other hand, do not (or little) the fact of accder in boxes 12 +: the heel of the neck and the lack of pan shot blocking game in the left hand (or right if your left handed) ...

The action is slightly high pass the 7th box, but nothing rhdibitoire, and only the electric guitar will be a lightweight effort to adapt.

    These remarks are valid for a tuning "classic" and a set of the same ilk, however if you want to use their true nature, it will open G and bottleneck! And without achieving the quality of a National (a is a mid-range, even when, right), a hard! And few complaints have deficits above really short ...

    SOUNDS

    In sound, I would put the record straight: I put 9, to stay a little * * goal, but if there had me, I would 10.

    Why? Because a dobro is not a folk: the sound is more powerful, more mtallique, a little 'dirty', too. Some people think a guitar twists sche gives a soft, warm, but also The variety of sounds available, dobros are a bit part. Personally, I use it as a folk, and I sound like the satisfaction of person when I listen what I do, there is half the people who do not, thinking that I 'I doctored the sound, and the other half who loves ... This kind of guitar is most often intended to slide in open G, and strangely, in this case the least * a * shocking the audience ...

    By consquent if you are looking this kind of sound, go for it. If you are looking folk, do not take a biscuit, but if you have the possibility the story try to make your own IDE.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had 5-6 years now ... And I love it! The sound is dirty, mtallique, almost cold. It has its own identity etchange a little fawn's playing: I was dj noted that for a given piece I do not play in the same fawn if I was playing on a folk or the Biscuit, it's a fact.

    In dpart, I wanted a classic dreadnought: I tried an Art & Lutherie (very good, by the way), the Biscuit silent on display in recent weeks, and I liked, but silent out budget. From buying the A & L I dj essay in other stores, I tried a small test of the Biscuit, like "you never know" ... And I fell madly. So, I left with: the shop made me a little rduction (c'tait the day of the fte music, aad help!), And I ate p thy for 2 months.

    So Obviously, this is comparable with other dobros: and it's all good, especially ramen at a price. Sr good, keep at the top it's a mid-range, and a 2000 National finer sound. But if you like it once, you will love forever. Do I repeat a silent if she steals / breaks (I never lose it!): Yes, a thousand times yes!

    A condition of the find because are bigger default is to be mconnue and therefore not distributed.

    A good compromise

    Epiphone BiscuitPublished on 05/03/10 at 14:04
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    I do not have to provide tech info, I bought this dobro that was hanging in a music store for months ... no record, oxidized strings .... but a good price.
    the handle is very nice, just adjust properly
    bending the ivory color makes it rather soft to the touch and the frets are wide and comfortable
    No microphones, it is unfortunate but considering the price ..

    UTILIZATION

    Same remarks it has (very much) for his money ... for what is sound, it often blames the stuff but never use your fingers .... Surprised??
    with a little practice, you get a sound quite easily and compresses slightly metallic, with a little less shine a metal dobro more heat ... but pure blues ...

    SOUNDS

    I love the way its steel ball that turns into a bucket of zinc ...
    Even if it makes a little Pissed off some ... it does ..
    you can play "Sittin On The Top Of The World" loop but avoid Ry Cooder ........ it lacks a little sustain
    Perfect for singing for my taste ..... how "Empire State Express"


    OVERALL OPINION

    I wanted a dobro to the side roots, new sounds and work the bottleneck in open ...
    I use it for 5 years so irregular ....
    I would still like to try him stick a piezo or another, just to see but I think it would top ...
    Unless it's an ultra bottleneck or a clone of Bob Brozman, this little dobro allow you to express yourself on new records and sing your blues when you feel the need quite honest, realistic, and given the price, you not even hesitate to take him on vacation ..
