internal or external pickup for dobro?

Recommended Posts

Just considering the choices for dobro pickup system for gigging use...I don`t want to drill any holes etc.,

so under my consideration are now few choices:


Schatten NR-2 Pro

K&K Pure Resonator BB

K&K Meridian external mic

Audio Technica Pro 35 Clip on mic...quite reasonable priced mic.

DPA4099G external mic ...but this may goes far out of my budged range:(

Gold Tone ABS system..I found this recently from reso nation topics...it looks versatile...any owners here?

-my gig situations are mostly with guitar amp and PA...and the nearest natural sound is the goal i`m aiming for.

-any experiences/recommendations are highly appreciated.

-also other choices than mentioned above are welcome...

IMHO, the only way to amplify a Dobro is with a mic.


This is quite interesting but more for recording than a live performance...

I have heard a few guys around here that had good dobro sound, and it turned out they were the internal dobro one, pretty sure the k&k. Plugged into a guitar amp no less.
