Just wanted to let yall know that I have aluminum 6 inch resonator cones now.

Exact Same design as the brass version you have seen around.

They are super

They are the same price as the brass cone $25

Difference in sound is pretty good they are quite a bit louder and have a more classic reso sound in my opinion. I transplanted one into an already built brass cone guitar after playing the brass for a few minutes and then switched and was very pleased with the sound of the new cone in it's place.

Any ways thanks for all who have purchased the brass cones from me in the past and here is something new for ya to try.

Happy Building!


Oh yeah if you want to hear one in one of my guitars I added a short demo of it on my page entitled "AlumiLowecone"
