Resonator Mandolin

without comments

There are a number of different types of resonator instruments, including resonator mandolins.  Like resonator guitars and ukuleles, a resonator mandolin uses resonators, or metal cones, to create the sound.  These instruments were actually developed around the same time as the resonator guitar by the John Dopyera.  National, the company formed by Dopyera and George Beauchamp, was producing resonator guitars, mandolins, and ukuleles within a year of beginning operation.  The company continued to create resonator mandolins until 1941.

However, after Dopyera left and formed Dobro, he added a few resonator mandolins to their product line.  These mandolins actually used a slightly different resonator, a cone and spider resonator.  Dobro mandolins (a term still used to refer to resonator mandolins as a whole today) featured wooden bodies, while National resonator mandolins used metal.  Following WWII, few all metal resonator instruments were created, although some can be found today.

Modern resonator mandolins are quite affordable.  Recording King is one popular brand name, and you can find their RA-998 resonator mandolin for $338.  Vintage resonator mandolins, however, may be much more expensive, especially if you’re looking for an original National or Dobro.
