I am holding Bashful Brother Oswald's Dobro, which he called "Herman"
Os' played this instrument for over fifty years with Roy Acuff's
Smokey Mt. Boys. It is a model 27 roundneck model that was
always tuned in "A" , which adds to it's unmistakable tone.
I had the privilege recently of meeting Mike Webb, who is
the present owner of "Herman", and he was gracious enough
to let me play it . It was the only time that the hair stood
up on the back of my neck from my own playing !
