National Reso-Phonic Tricone Style 1

Stevetuc, 04.06.2015
I have been playing my National Tricone style 1 for some months now and decided to write a review.

The finish and attention to detail is superb. The first thing you notice is the weight of the instrument. Its heavy and needs some support to stop it sliding down when playing - you soon get used to this however.This model is made from brass and nickel plated. The fingerboard is wide and comfortable for a player like myself who is primarily a classical guitarist.
The strings provided are a medium set with .013 on the top which works well for DGDGBD tuning. The National case is very well made and of course embossed with the National logo.

I use a diamond bottleneck slide and the tricone really sings with that. The sustain is great for blues lines. I can thoroughly recommend this instrument and the pride of ownership you get from owning a National guitar. You wont be disappointed!

Magic !!!!

Bruno A., 14.08.2015
Having acquired 3 years ago a National replicon style O, I appreciated the quality and sound (sounds) of the guitars National, so it is quite naturally that I took an interest in the tricone. I made the step, and Ô miracle! Everything is at the rendezvous, the finish, the look and of course the sound ... less rough and with less projection than an O style but more versatility and brilliance and sustain! A sustain !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! To die ! Of course, it will still be necessary to play it so that the sound opens but it is already huge, both in slide and picking, you will not be able to do without ..... only delicate point, price, but I think in view of the finishing and the quality of the instrument that its value will only grow with time, a family father placement somehow :) without any regrets !!!!
