About Resonator Guitars

Resonator guitars have always been popular in Blues, Country and Bluegrass genres. Resonators sound as distinctive as they look, providing a large metallic tone. They are often played using a bottleneck slide as they work well together. Resonators are acoustic guitars but the metal construction and unique sound they produce sets them apart.

Some models, such as the Gretsch G9230, have bodies that are made partly of wood but have the metal 'resonator cone' section. Others, like the Ozark Steel Body Resonator have completely metal bodies. Although not seen as regularly as acoustic or electric guitars, many musicians still choose to include a resonator in their music.

Whether it's to add some vintage flavour to a song or take your music in a new direction, a resonator could be just what you're after.

 

Why Should I Choose a Resonator Guitar?

  • Authentic vintage style tones
  • Stunning deco inspired designs
  • Great for blues and country playing

Frequently Asked Questions about Resonator Guitars

Question: How does a resonator guitar work?
Resonator guitars have a steel cone in the middle of the guitar which acts as a speaker, giving more volume and projection to your playing. Resonators were created before electric amplification and were designed for guitar players to be heard over loud bars. In using a steel cone, the tone also changes drastically from a typical wooden acoustic guitar. Resonators have a distinctive mid-range sound which lends itself beautifully to finger picking and slide playing.
Question: Can you play a resonator guitar like an acoustic?
There are two types of resonator guitars: square neck and round necks. You can absolutely play a round neck resonator like an acoustic guitar although it definitely sounds better fingerpicked rather than strummed. Square neck resonators, however, are designed for playing like a lap steel using a tonebar.
Question: How can I amplify a resonator guitar?
Although you can install a pickup in a resonator guitar, it’s not that common to find factory made electroacoustic resonators. In most cases, a microphone pointing at the cone will be the best way to capture that unmistakable sound. This works both in the studio and on stage.
