Default Resonator guitars

Hi wonderful expert musical people

I am a guitarist that is confused by resonators -- these are the proper metal one's I am talking about by Dobro and National and a whole host of copy cat versions.

There is a confusing array

Single cone
Set up for slide
Set up for pick ( I need pick)

many makes like Ozark and wierd names I have never heard before.

I read reviews and there are divided views on which is best.
Ozarks look great but dont sustain
Dobro's require a remortgage of your house - family - dog - sell the wife etc.

Then there is the range of biscuits in a wooden box which to me dont sound right.


I'm seeking one that sustains - nice action for normal play (not slide) looks good -- doesnt mean I have to sell my family to science. Budget = 900 max --- $1700



Hum likes to have a nice "Noise to Signal" ratio
To "Hum" is to be noticed Quality hum is when it pours out of Electrostatic speakers

Is this the right page?


I am really not sure because the posted link is completely unspecific. I found a really good article that gives a better explanation. The page may be found here:


Hope this helps
