Originally resonator guitars were the loudest and most state of the art stringed instruments available. they became very successful and sought after instruments because of this. the guitarist competing with the fierce cut of a banjo player needed a guitar that could be heard. the direct nature of the string vibrations being passed to the internal speaker cone which then resonates and amplifies the string sound, giving the guitar a unique tone. it was a break through in guitar design that is just as relevant today, despite the advent of amplification.
During those early years the Resonator guitar was a crazy invention embraced by the bluegrass and hawaiian musicians. this mechanical amplification, relying on the aluminium cone inside the guitars metal body captured musicians hearts, nothing comes close if you are looking for that resonator tone.
In more recent times artist like ry cooder and mark knopfler have immortalized this wonderful sound and now that resonator guitar tone can now be yours at reasonable cost with no compromise in quality.
