    Not to my dark side.
    The fabulous Naiant Mics, perfect for acoustic instruments!

    If you don't have DavidK's CD, you are a loser.


    My tunes. Thanks!

    You're safe. You bought one without a resonator. So you're more like Pete Seeger than Earl Scruggs. Of course, that makes you a lefty. But I suppose that's better than a hillbilly.

    Looks like an old National lap steel!

    The Wildwood Troubador was what I really meant to buy. But somewhow I seemed to be about $800 short at the time... But this one is a special order entry level Chinese Gold Tone - kinda like a Stelling Goodtime but a little more banjo. It comes with "guitar type" (blecchhh - on a banjo??) tuners, but you can order it with planetary banjo tuners, which is what I did. Its a good learner and should be here next week.

    It's actually a newer Morrell lap steel. One of these days I'm going to get a real pedal steel. In the meantime, it's the lap steel with a volume pedal, some reverb, and prayer that nobody is listening too closely.
