  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
