RESONATORS

RESONATORS | Derringers Music Store | Adelaide Australia

Derringers Music has a great range of Resonator Guitars. n 1927, Dopyera and Beauchamp formed the National String Instrument Corporation to manufacture resonator guitars under the brand name "National". The first models were metal-bodied and featured three conical aluminium resonators joined by a T-shaped aluminium bar that supported the bridge—a system called the tricone.
There are three main resonator designs:

  • The tricone, with three metal cones, designed by the first National company
  • The single-cone "biscuit" design of other National instruments
  • The single inverted-cone design (also known as a spider bridge) of Dobro brand instruments and instruments that copy the Dobro design

Many variations of all these styles and designs have been produced under many brand names. The body of a resonator guitar may be made of wood, metal, or occasionally other materials. Typically there are two main sound holes, positioned on either side of the fingerboard extension. In the case of single-cone models, the sound holes are either both circular or both f-shaped, and symmetrical. The older tricone design has irregularly shaped sound holes. Cutaway body styles may truncate or omit the lower f-hole.
