How much more difficult is a dog bowl resonator to build compared to a regular cbg? Thanks, Bill

I've converted a scrap 12-string to a reso using a 10" aluminium ring-shaped cake tin. There's a plywood ring around the aperture, and a fair bit of extra wood work inside the box.

I shimmed the neck to tilt back by a couple of degrees, and made a trapeze tail and a biscuit bridge.  Intonation is adjusted by moving the bridge.

It's big, it's loud, it's bloody heavy!

That's cool.

I've thought of doing the same before. How does it sound?

I did not get the sound I thought I would out of a dog bowl. I 86d the body, gave the bowl to charity, and used the neck on another git. I had some good luck though with a 4 inch shower drain cover and a tin underneath. I thought maybe the dog bowl was just to thick and heavy. I am late in on this thread, but I say experiment. I may not have done something right, or something else. I have heard others not so happy with the bowl, and some have great luck with them. I am over resonators these days.

Those look nice.

Thank you!

Just curious here.  I've noticed almost all CBGs have sound-holes anywhere but under the strings…See More
