Resonator Acoustic Guitars

Resonators have a very unique sound. Though it is effectively an acoustic guitar, the metal resonators lend it a far brasher tone, with a slightly boxy (in a good way) mid-range. Aside from the increase in volume, the resonator’s unique tone cuts through most mixes and performances far more easily than a regular guitar.

It became a popular choice for blues and bluegrass players, though since its appearance it has found its way into country, folk, rock and countless other styles.
