The new resonators are available in both roundneck and squareneck styles.

Hayward, CA September 28, 2015) -- Recording King introduces four new wood body resonators perfect for traditional blues, bluegrass and roots players. The RR-51, 55, 61 and 65 deliver historic resonator tone and style with designs based on history's venerable resophonic instruments.

The new resonators are available in both roundneck and squareneck styles. The RR-51 roundneck and its squareneck counterpart (RR-61) are all-mahogany resonators finished in vintage-style brown satin. The hand-spun Recording King spider cone delivers powerful resonator sound immediately familiar to roots music aficionados. The traditional-style soundwell and soundholes are placed to optimize bass and treble frequencies as they exit the body for the perfect dry, throaty resonator sound. The mahogany neck and body give the 51 and 61 classic “hog” style warmth in either roundneck or squareneck versions. A bone nut and bell brass tailpiece complete the classic design, and accentuate the crisp metallic resophonic tone players demand.
