My Best Resonator...

19.07.2016
...also my only resonator :-) If a National is too much or a little excessive for your needs as it would have been for me then this is an excellent cost effective alternative that I found highly playable and with a great sound.

Nice action, a little too low maybe but allows combination of slide and fretting. So personally I like it as is and probably won't be changing that. A little wider at the nut than I am used to from a more normal acoustic guitar but I like it in this style of guitar.

The sound is personal preference but to me I found this great, especially with a glass slide gives a more relaxed, laid back sound to my ears but also sounded nice, bright, sharp with brass slide.

As can probably tell, I would recommend this instrument to anyone considering a resonator guitar. Probably as with all these types of guitar it marks just as soon as you look at it! So you will want to keep a nice cloth handy if want it keeping its good looks, and it does look very good!

Recording King Tricone 991

Nicholas W., 08.01.2015
I love this guitar when it arrived was finished to high standard no cone buzz and extremly well set up. one thing i did was change the strings to Elixir resonator strings made a huge difference to the volume which was already LOUD but the coating on these strings lets the slide glide creating less friction and string buzz. If I could change one thing i would like to see a magnetic pick up fitted as i will need some poer for gigging. I bought on line a Lace ultra slim resonator pick up this just made it sing. anay faults well its heavy i find it easier to play when standing as its bottom heavy like all metal resonators and has a tendency to slip back. I just love this guitar its a serious peice of kit and art.
