Love it!!
Anonymous 22.09.2016
I have wanted a resonator for some time now as I've long been a fan of old time blues and slide guitar.

I tried out a few different ones (mostly Gretsch and Epiphone models) in a local guitar store and I knew the Hound Dog just sounded and felt the best. Luckily Thomann had the same model listed for a fraction of the price so I ordered it the minute I got home (the glory of internet shopping).

When it arrived it sounded every bit as good as the one I had left in the store. Also, aesthetically beautiful to look at. Currently learning some nice fingerpicking blues on my new addition.

Pros:
Slick, sounds great (for the price)

Cons:
Have to play sitting down cos it's ridiculously heavy!!

Great Value for the price.
Frederick337 02.03.2020
As a resonator guitar for the price I paid it is a good value for money instrument. It is very basic in construction, hardware etc.
It stays in tune and plays well. It is comfortable to hold and play. It needed a few minor adjustments which is ok as every guitar has his or hers specific requirements, action height string gauge etc.
The tone is ok but not fantastic but thats what you get at this price range, A very playable guitar and a good addition to any collection if you only play resonator now and again. It records well and does what it says on the box. I recommend it anyone who wants to a resonator to mess about with. It is build very well and is a sturdy construction.

Qualität aus Fernost
UlrichK 09.11.2009
Die DOBRO HOUND DOG ROUND NECK ist ein hervorragendes Instrument. Im Gegensatz zu einer Ganzmetall-Resonatorgitarre bietet die HOUND DOG den warmen Klang massiven Holzes, gepaart mit der Lautstärke und dem typischen Klang eines Spider-Resonators. Die F-Löcher machen das Instrument auch optisch zu einem Hingucker.

Zwar gibt es die HOUND DOG auch mit eingebautem Tonabnehmer, dann muß aber auf die F-Löcher zugunsten sogenannter "Teesiebe" verzichtet werden, die auch das Klangverhalten beeinflussen. Hier könnte ein nachträglich eingebauter Tonabnehmer Abhilfe verschaffen, so bleiben denn die ebenfalls für den warmen Ton mitverantwortlichen F-Löcher erhalten. Aber die Qualitäten der Gitarre liegen ganz klar im unverstärkten Bereich.

Die Verarbeitung ist 1 a und läßt all jene vestummen, die der Fernost-Produktion mangelnde Qualität unterstellen. Die Grover-Mechaniken arbeiten einwandfrei und auch der Resonator scheint von ausgesuchter Qualität zu sein.

Alles in allem ist die HOUND DOG ein Instrument, das optisch wie klanglich überzeugen kann und hat im Vergleich zu anderen Gitarren dieser Bauart in diesem Preissegment klar die Nase vorn.

Pas mal, prévoir le réglage
Fred575 03.01.2014
Reçu tout à l'heure, donc premières impressions
Jolie apparence, sobre, brut même, satinée/mate, j'aime bien
Elle me semble un peu lourde
Par contre, la guitare a besoin d'un bon setup....
Trussrod desserré complètement...., je le retends
Cordes toutes ternies, de faible tirant inadapté au style, je les remplace, Attention au placement du cône pour l'équilibre du son
Son chaud, jolie projection, belle présence si on lui rentre dedans, mais le sillet plastoc donne une étroitesse de jeu qui convient aux doigts de fées et pas à mes grosses pattes, je l'enlève de suite pour le remplacer par de l'os, avec un meilleur écart
Evidemment, le son est de suite plus net, mieux défini, un upgrade indispensable à mon avis pour améliorer la belle
Pour l'instant, l'action est encore réservé aux athlètes, je verrai cela plus tard
Globalement, je suis satisfait pour le prix, mais autant tout de suite remplacer le sillet d'origine en plastique par de l'os et en profiter pour améliorer l'écart de cordes, le résultat en vaut la chandelle
Pour les non bricoleurs, un modèle peut être à éviter, vraiment pas plug and play, ou bien si vous avez un pote luthier sous la main......
