"Wrapped it in aluminum? Why? I have a problem with my LPG using a flat humbucker mounted on the top if the license plate. Bad feedback and hum. Would shielding the pick up work better?"

Jerry Jordan replied to Doc Helliday's discussion Thoughts on the Wickedbucker?
"A graphic EQ pedal, used with an acoustic simulator pedal or preset, could make a lapsteel sound like a reso.,,.looking at what the big boys use, it is usually a magnetic pickup and a pre-amped  piezo blended together to get that dobro sound…"

Thoughts on the Wickedbucker?

Any of y'all have any experience or can recommend the Wickedbucker for a Reso biscuit style?I'm looking at flat pups for a project with a resonator biscuit and ran across the Wickedbucker as a possible cheaper alternative to (outrageously) expensive Krivo, Lace, National or even Sixtus (not too bad $) flat buckersTheres a lot of videos for the 1st 3 and the Krivo seems to capture the "Reso" sound the best I got plenty of "plain" 'ole electrics around, so i'm trying to avoid something that will…See More

"Thanks for the fast reply Jerry, and awesome name (My Dad's name)!I have a few rods floating around from standard acoustics and whatnot, however this is my first ResoHow would you mount it to the biscuit?"

Hey y'all,I chose to ask this question here rather than the Reso Hangout forum, since I get the impression over there they are a little less DIY (erhm budget minded) when it comes to gear. Makes since, you got an expensive antique instrument, really, what is a $200 dollar pickup investment at that point? Whereas I bought a cheapie Asian biscuit style resonator.Question: Between a Wickedbucker ,floating jazz neck pup or hotplate (maybe with a lipstick pup, lawd knows I got a few)What would you…See More
