Triolian Electric Dobro

without comments

The Triolian resonator guitar, originally built in 1928, was one of the first resonators to appear on the market.  It was National’s first single cone guitar.  It got its name from the mini tricone setup that the prototype instrument used.  However, the prototype turned out to be too expensive to build, but the name stuck.

National produced these guitars in several different styles, including a wood body one, a metal body one, and various models using different specs.  The final Triolian vintage model was made during 1938.  It was the first model to use a pickguard, but it was soon discontinued and replaced by the Collegian.  A few National Triolian models were made between 1939 and 1941.

There are actually some Triolian Electric Dobro instruments.  These guitars may not always have the Triolian name, but they use the same setup—a single core.  They’re often a little bit quitter and mellower, especially those made with wooden bodies.  Most use National cones and coverplates, even if the bodies were not actually created by National (many weren’t, which lead to some oddly shaped instruments).  The electric Dobros available today make use of more standardized bodies that do not have this problem.
