The Aria 6 String Lap Steel is a rare instrument, the model of which I've used was made in 1965. The studio that I worked at before the one I'm currently at had this, and I still use it every now and again as I still work with the producer that owned the studio. I don't know much about the make up or the origins of this lap steel, but it's got dual single coil pick ups. It comes with it's own legs for standing it up on it's own if you so choose but I'll usually just put it on my lap without the legs.


Playing the Aria 6 String Lap Steel is a real pleasure and it feels good to play and doesn't hinder playability in the least - if anything it helps those just starting out. The pick up has tone and volume control knobs, although petty much what you hear is what you get since there isn't much in depth control. This doesn't matter too much as I find the inherent sound to be quite good...


The sound of the Aria 6 String Lap Steel is pretty awesome as I've used it on a number of recordings for both my own songs and for other bands. I'm not the best lap steel player in the world, but have recorded with it myself and have also had more experienced players use it on some of my recordings and others. I've primarily used it with a '65 Fender Deluxe Reverb and usually have it up with a few pedals like a T-Rex Replica and Dr. Swamp for extra effects. I love the sound I get with this steel.


You won't find too many Aria 6 String Lap Steels out there, as the one I've used is the only one I've ever seen. I don't know how many were made, but there isn't much information out there about them on the web so I think it's safe to assume it's quite rare. I'm glad that I have access to one but if I didn't I'm sure I could replace it with something comparable somewhat easily. If you do come across an Aria 6 String Lap Steel it's a great instrument and one to check out and/or buy if possible.
