Here's some pics and videos of my hand spun brass resonator cones. They are 6 inches across and need to have a 7 inch wide box minimum to fit in. We hand spin them on a lathe out of bras sheets right her in Texas. They are a little sturdier than a normal cone so there is no need for a sound well or a cover plate. If you do add a cover plate it would be for looks only but that's fine too! Installation is pretty simple just cut a pretty good 6 inch hole in your box and lay the cone inside and fasten it with some bolts and nuts. You need to be kind of careful if you are making a fretted instrument to get the center of the cone exactly where the bridge needs to befor intonation unfretted instruments just go crazy do it however ya want Ha!
I sell these cones for 25 dollars and I take pay pal
If you are interested in one or two of these just add me as a friend on here and send me a message and I can tell ya everything you need to know!

This page says your cones are brass and 6.5" O.D. Do you make a 7.25" O.D. spun brass cone? Do you think it would take the downward pressure of 30" bass strings? Would it accommodate a 3" biscuit for the bridge? The normal string spacing for this bass is 2&5/16" from E to G. I like the look of your brass cones and covers. I would like to use them to add a resonator to an acoustic bass guitar if they would work. Thank you for your time and attention. My email remains GZboat@yahoo.com
Hi Lowe, I am interested in adding a resonator to a Applause acoustic bass guitar. Your spun brass cones look very cool and they have an integral mounting ring, correct? That would really simplify my build. Do you ever, or would you consider, building a cone in a larger size, say 8.25" to 9.5"? I'd need a cone, cover plate, biscuit, saddle, and trapeze. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated. If you want to continue this conversation privately, please just email me at GZboat@yahoo.com. Thank you for your time.
Hi Lowe, used to live in Rockwall many years ago. I am new to cigar box nation but am quit interested I making a 3 string resonator with your parts. Can you get back to me and let me know pricing for cone, cover, Bisket and any additional hardware needed. I am also looking for plans that would assist in the build. I have a PayPal account and have purchased items from Dan Sleep.
I am ready to order at least one brass cone and a cover. I am not sure how to install a rod piezo under the bridge on one of these and I also don't know how to pay you with PayPal. Yes I have and account. can you email or call me? My number is 501-627-5344 I'm still in Ft. Smith AR. Thanks in advance! You da man!!!!
