Tricone Resonator

without comments

Tricone ResonatorThe Tricone Resonator was the first resonator guitar created by the National String Instrument Corporation.  As the very first resonator guitar, it was quite innovative.  It was created by John Dopyera after George Beauchamp asked Dopyera about making a guitar loud enough to be heard over brass and wind instruments.  The first tricone resonator was built in 1927 and sold by National.  It features a metal body with three aluminum cores joined with a T-shaped aluminum spider.  This produced a very unique, loud sound that was incredibly unique.  Later models would use wooden bodies instead of metal, but they still had the loud sound that resonators later became known for.

After Dopyera left National, he formed Dobro.  He continued to produce resonators, but instead of the tricone model, he used a single resonator design.  However, the tricone model was still popular.  There are a number of different tricone styles that were created between 1927 and 1942.  They all had the same type of sound, but some had different engravings, fingerboard inlays, and other unique features.
