Details

For those wondering what exactly a resonator is and why you'd want one?  It's a means of amplifying the sound of an acoustic guitar or ukulele where the sound is produced by a spun metal cone instead of the wooden soundboard of the instrument. It was developed before the advent of electronics, so that stringed instruments could be heard alongside louder ensemble instruments like horns and percussion. Now that we have electronic amplification it's really their unique sound and tonal quality that holds their allure.

This is an example of a wooden bodied resonator uke.  Crafted with mahogany top, back and sides to compliment the chiming tone produced by the cone.

The brand works with the long established luthier Phil Davidson to design and create each model which is tested and checked to produce an instrument that is both easy to play and provides a high quality sound.
