Tone Bar Dobro

without comments

If you’ve never played a Dobro or resonator guitar before, you may have no idea what a tone bar is.  A tone bar, also called Dobro steel, looks like half of a metal tube.  It’s usually held in the left hand and used to play the Dobro by pressing it against the strings.  The reason for this is due to the way a resonator guitar is made.  The strings on Dobros are up and away from the fretboard, not held down against it like on a traditional guitar.  By pressing the tone bar against the strings in different places, the player can create different pitches.

Why use a tone bar?  Well, you don’t have to—you can use pretty much anything to play your resonator guitar or lap steel guitar.  However, a tone bar is created especially for this task.  A steel tone bar makes the strings resonate longer, which creates a very distinctive sound.

Tone bars are fairly inexpensive.  You can find one for $25 or $30.  Some have different cutaway designs or weigh a bit more, which changes the sound you get.  A few brand names include Shubb-Pearse, Dunlop, and Stevens.
