Hiya,

I love the resonator, I am about to start a build and am really interested in how yours sounds and how the resonator/piezos go together...

Would love to see more detail or a diagram :)

Greetings from down south in Amsterdam.  That resonator you've constructed is a thing of true beauty,  I saw a metal bed pan the other day.  It got me thinking resonator too.  I has some very funny looks from people, when I started tapping it near my ear.

I'm in the process of making a 2 string chugger out of a "Diesel Unholy Cocktail box.  It's going to be fitted with a 3 pole mag bass pickup.  It has an American white oak neck with a mahogany fretboard. All locally sourced and hand crafted.  It's a squat, squarish, deep box.  It should b great for percussive slide playing.
