Meet “Delta”. Delta gives a nod to both the kitchen and to Delta blues where the metal resonator guitar, or Dobro, was a staple. The “swampy” sound is a combination of wood &steel. The resonator is an original design using stainless steel cat bowls from a pet store as well as the blade from a vegetable grater and salt and pepper shakers for the sound holes. She has a maple neck & jatoba fretboard.
