I came across this neat old cake pan and thought it would make a kool resonator. I have no intention of building one, but if anyone is interested in using it it's yours free. All I ask is you pay actual postage. I'm not out to make money, just don't want to see it in scrap heap. Its roughly 9"x9"x 4" deep

Hi Will, I'm not sure that the shape and other features of that pan lends it to sound enhansment, as I see many folds and corners and very little in the way of uninterrupted surface areas to vibrate.

just a thought. Taff

Kool, I’ve seen a few over the years made from those square pans & they work great? Blind Doughboy uses stuff like that all the time, In cbg’s we don’t roll by the rules anyway, right? Cheers :)

AGREED ;-D 

Hi Will, just saying that a pan with a large hole in it ain't gonna resonate as good as a a solid surface. But if the other guy's have tried it and it works I'll be guided by them. 

I realise there are no rules in building these CBG's, but I think there are a few rules that will lead those that choose to follow them to a better quality of sound, if that's what they want.

Taff

Would need a cone in that hole unless the removable piece could be used in a fixed position.

Uhhh, why aren't you making a resonator with that pan? What's wrong with you? Start building it now. LOL

LOL I hate to admit it, but I've been eyeballing and thinking about what to do. If and only if, but not very likely (way too big of a list too do) I'd cut a thin veneer piece to fit the bottom and strips to hold the middle piece up. I used a tuning fork on it. I'm not an expert, it sounds pretty decent. I already get strange looks at the local thrift shops with that damn thing LOL , I walk over to the kitchen section and start testing a bowl flipped over into another or a bunt pan, cookies tin or God knows what! All I know is when I tap that tuning fork and touch it to the bridge location I get some strange looks as well as barely audible comments like " wtf was that!" Or my favorite one "I don't think he's right in the head"! I heard rumors of being banished, don't know if it would be me, the tuning fork or both! With all that said, gotta admit it, seeing a full grown man tapping on bowls and such is a little strange! The up side to all this, WIFE DOSENT SPEND MUCH TIME IN THERE! Why didn't I think of that years ago! Downside she's online shopping too much!

LOL  I'm guilty as well.
