"Hi Rob, to build the guitar itself would be the same, the inference is the type of cone used, if you are buying ready made cones. If utilising something else for a resonator cone, biscuit bridge would be easier. Taff"

Hi All,i come with a question to you about the principle of a biscuit cone resonator:What is the interaction of string tension versus sound? I assume a aluminium cone needs a certain pressure on the biscuit to perform best? Exists a value for best performance? How to calculate the pressure from the string tension, because the angle from saddle to string fixing has an big impact.The reason why i am asking: My couch guitar fall down direct on the saddle - top broken.
