A few last minute comments
For $30 I think this is a worthwhile investment. You can hear the results in a mix with the recorded song above and it does offer an authentic dobro sound on the E9th neck.
I'm still not done trying different bars and placements of the Fish And Chips in the effects chain. I did try reversing the order of the RV5 and Fish as listed above and I
lost some of the authentic tone. I also found that placing the Fish between the steel and the Goodrich volume pedal greatly reduced the white noise but also lost some of the desired
dobro effect. This unit is not full analog bypass so if you leave it in line you will have some change in tone.
As another experiment I recorded my straight steel sound and ported it to Reaper. I then proceeded to try various Reaper EQ plugins with the same 7 bands of EQ and cut/boost as
the Fish And Chips. Nothing came remotely close to the Fish sound. This would have been handy for recording dobro sounds without swapping in the Fish. No soap and no dobro sound!
