To date I have never used any of the reso models but now want to give them a try. I would be interested to know what type of amplification people use, especially if using an HD500. Do you use amp models (if so, which ones) or do you treat them like the acoustic models and go direct?

 

Thanks, in advance.

There are two reso models that sound very 'acoustic guitar' like; the Shorthorn definitely is pretty smooth.

 

The banjo and sitar are the most eclectic of the bunch; they can be pretty funky sounding, cool to use them as a 'lead tone'.

The tone knob for the sitar model controls the volume of the drone strings.

 

I can't remember the tricone or the dobro is also similar to the acoustics in terms of playability.

I actually moved the two 12 string acoustic guitar models into the reso bank, and put the Shorthorn and one other reso into the acoustics bank.

 

If you really want to get authentic with the banjo, you can do an alternate tuning to mute one string, and tune the other strings to the G-D-G-B-D banjo tuning! You can even bring the octave of the lowest string up an octave and bust out of the finger picks.

I run all acoustics & resos 1st thru my voicelive 3 on a global acoustic patch> FRFR thru my Bose L1 Model II - sounds awesome (also in the *8000+ tones download there's a patch called "maggie may 12 & mandolin" that I like - the 12 is just vol pedal vetta juice & plate...& the mandolin is thru a Gibtone 185 -I run my guitar split between voicelive & pod so I can go direct to PA & a line to amp....nice to blend
