    Michael Messer Resonator Guitars Slide Show

    4:08

    With over thirty five years experience of playing, collecting & reviewing resonator guitars, I have been working with a small guitar workshop to create what I believe are the most authentic & playable 1930s style resonator guitars at affordable and realistic prices.

    The body dimensions, neck profile, headstock, spun aluminium cone & set-up will give the player the classic tone, volume & feel of a 1930s metal-bodied resonator guitar. I believe these are the only budget priced resonator guitars available that can boast these features.
    Michael Messer

    MICHAEL MESSER BLUES -- steel bodied classic 1930s design. Available as 12 and 14 fret models. Spun aluminium cone, 3 on a strip open tuners, steel body, grey-burst 1930's style paint finish, mahogany neck, rosewood fingerboard, bone nut, maple bridge.

    Walking Blues on a Michael Messer Lightning Reso

    3:50

    I love this song so much and so I decided to record my version (because that's what youtube seems to be for).
    This song was written by blues legend - Robert Johnson. I base my version on Eric Clapton's MTV Unplugged rendition.

    For those of you interested, my guitar is a Michael Messer Lightning and I'm using a Moonshine slide

    Michael Messer Blues MMB 14 fret, demonstration by Jan Haasler

    2:57

    This is just to demonstrate the sound of that great Duolian style resonator guitar I purchased from Michael Messer. Deep, singing and plonky sound. I love it for it's close originallity (referred to the real vintage brand). Perfect blues machine and beyond (for any slide-, fingerstyle and bottleneck guitar related style).

    Sorry for the incomplete viedeo. Suddenly the camera's batterie was off.

    Michael Messer resonator Guitars and Highlander Pickup Demonstration by Jan Haasler

    9:11

    This a video to demonstrate the MM guitars (Michael Messer Blues 14 fret and a Michael Messer Blues 28 Triolian style guitar with a wooden body) equipped with the Highlander IP-1x resophonic guitar piezo pickup running through a L.R. Baggs preamp...
    The output is great and you can get a decent resophonic guitar sound amplified, even better with an external preamp wich i still recommend using (without it you still have good eleçtrified tone with your national style guitar; using a mic is the best approach though i think).
    Used a Mi chael Messer Blues (14 fret) and a Michael Messer Blues 28.

    Michael Messer Blues 28 demonstration by Jan Haasler

    3:33

    This is a quick demo of my Michael Messer Blues 28 wood body Triolian style resonator guitar. It sounds quite different from the other steel bodied Duolian style guitar of course. It has a more mellow, nasally and you may guess - woodier - tone that I like so much.
    Concerning my taste it combines the single cone biscuit style and a bit of the tricone sounds perfectly.
    The improvised example is mainly in open G with a dropped C bass (key of C)

    Michael Messer Blues 14 fret, demonstration by Jan Haasler, resonator slide guitar

    5:03

    Here I came up with a quick video that demonstrates the sound of my Michael Messer Blues 14 fret Duolian style guitar. I played a couple of riffs in open D with the unbelievably longlasting Michael Messer strings (I switched the tunings as often as never before and none of the strings broke yet since 2 month).
    Better quality, durability and closer sound to old originals than the Gretsch Alligators i used to play (they have a different philosophy behind of course).

    This is just to demonstrate the couple of MM Guitars I purchased recently. This is neither a commercial nor do I own any rights concerning this brand.
    Great, great guitars to me with a personal customer service and best set up. Having the budget price in mind I guess other brands are no real match to this valuable instruments. . .

    Rollin & Tumblin - Michael Messer, Manish Pingle, Gurdain Rayatt

    7:20

    Recorded live at the Troubadour Club, London, September 2013.

    (With special thanks to The North American Guitar and Mark Pavey)

    East meets West in this new musical meeting between two virtuoso players of both slide and steel guitar.

    Formed in 2013 after Michael Messer and Manish Pingle met during a festival in Mumbai, this trio is a not only a coming together of like-minded musicians, each with high profile reputations in their own spheres, but also an inspired exploration of the ground between Messer’s blues and steel guitar and Pingle’s classical Indian slide guitar.

    Adding the polyrhythmic virtuosity of the highly regarded tabla player Gurdain Rayatt, the two guitarists have created a unique trio that appeals to everyone interested in instrumental brilliance and the musical connections that flow from the Ganges to the Mississippi Delta.

    Messing around on a Michael Messer resonator guitar that my student Jason Derbyshire bought online. Delivered to my home as Jason was moving house. So well packed and in a beautiful lined hard case plus a flared hand made slide. I played for Jason the day the guitar arrived, nice setup, so ready to play.

    Resonator comparison - Fender, Regal & Michael Messer

    4:46

    A shootout between 3 resonator guitars:
    - Regal RC2
    - Fender FR50
    - Michael Messer Blues
    There are 2 examples of slide guitar playing using the 3 guitars - one example used a pick while the other just uses fingers. The first example is a 12 bar blues in open D in the style of my band's song 'Credit Card Blues; the second example is my song 'When I cry'. At the end of the video there is a short excerpt of Credit Card Blues from my band NORTHBOUND and the recording is taken from out debut album Wish I was Home. The Regal was the guitar I used for this recording.

    Please leave some comments to tell me what you think of the guitars.
