Shubb SP2 - Extra Mass Tone Bar for Lap Steel
About this SHUBB SP2 - Extra Mass Tone Bar for Lap Steel, Dobro and Weisenborn.
Shubb guitar steels are designed by musicians with the special demands of today's playing styles in mind. They offer unique design features not found on any other bars, including cutaway ends for improved control, and a semi-bullet tip which facilitates movement across the strings.
The original Shubb-Pearse Steel designed by John Pearse is favoured by many 8-string lap steel and Hawaiian guitarists for its extra length and a cutaway bullet tip.
The Tech Features
Shubb SP2 Extra Mass Lap Steel Tone BarBy: Mike on 14 September 2015Shubb make a number of variants of lap steel tone bars, each one has a slightly different design. The SP2 is a really nice design with a semi-bullet tip that is good for selecting single notes on your resonator. Most players of resonators buy a few different bars in search of the one that suits them best, I am no different. The SP2 is a really nice bar and might be the perfect one for you, however if it's not suiting you, then Shubb (and others) make bars in slightly different configurations. You might need to try a few out before settling on the one for you, however the SP2 is not a bad starting place, and you might just find it's a keeper.
