Guitars Resonator: spider cookies and cones, by God!
More and more frequently these days, an instrument originally designed a purpose or genre will be adopted and adapted to a completely different area. This was the fate of the resonator guitar, which was designed Originally scheduled to be stronger than a conventional acoustic guitar to ensure that the instrument could be heard above the horns and percussion instruments in dance orchestras. resonator guitar, however, is endowed with a sound very different and original, and therefore has been adopted and integrated into the musical genres of bluegrass, country and blues.
resophonic resonator guitar, or guitar as it is sometimes called, is an acoustic guitar that uses one or more metal cones (resonators) instead of the traditional wooden harmonica CAP. These instruments can be divided into two subcategories, which are square-necked guitars and guitar neck. The former are designed to be played like a guitar lap steel (with slide), while the second can be played as a classical guitar classical guitar or steel. In addition to this division, there are three main types resonator designs: the "Tricon" only the inverted cone, spider and cone bottom only.
The resonator guitar original was developed during the 20th century and in 1927 the first instruments were manufactured under the brand national. These guitars are TRICONE variety, which means he had three conical resonators connected by a T-shaped piece of aluminum called a "spider" which supported the bridge. A year later, one of the founding members of the national division and began his own label, Dobro. The company launched a guitar resonator competition which had a single resonator under a distinctive circular perforated metal plate cover. The bridge was in the center of the aluminum plate on a spider with eight legs. Finally, says the vision with his own model for the resonator. This instrument was wood used in cookies on the top of the cone to support the bridge, instead of the traditional spider.
This rapid succession of innovations instrument occurred over about five years. At the end of the period, in 1932, owners of Dobro took control of National and formed the National Dobro Corporation. However, with the entry of the United States in the Second World War in 1941, all production by the resonator guitar company stopped for a while. Since the end of World War II, the label Dobro has gone through several hands, who used to produce resonator guitars. Dobro is currently the possession of Gibson Guitar Corporation. Today, Dobro common terminology used to describe an instrument an inverted cone, while the national general, an instrument with a non-inverted cone.
As mentioned, bluegrass, country and blues on the traditional territory of the resonator guitar. The first is generally used square necked Dobro guitars, while the last two neck at National Instruments. Because that the two styles of guitar can be played like a lap steel guitar is the position most commonly used by artists. However, round neck guitars can be played on classical guitar position.
