Replogle Resonators, Biscuit Cone 9 1/2″ Series Retro
The Replogle Reso (B95A) 9 1/2 Series “Retro” biscuit-bridge style cone is hand spun in California. Mike Replogle uses a special hardened aluminum alloy for maximum strength, tone, projection and sustain. This is a replacement cone for resonator guitars with a tight or slightly smaller than true 9.5″ soundwell.
The “9 1/2 Retro” biscuit resonator cone measure an actual 9.375″ net cone diameter. The edges are rolled up to create a bead that reinforces the durability of the cone edges and yields a slightly smaller diameter of 9.375”. These cones may NOT be trimmed.
The Standard “9 1/2 Retro″ biscuit resonator is perfect for some brands and models that use an actual 9.5” resonator sound well (or less) construction.
Replogle resonators are hand-spun in California to exacting specifications and high tolerances. These are the same cones used since the mid-1990’s in US-made Dobro-brand guitars produced by the Original Musical Instrument Company (OMI) and the Original Acoustic Instrument (OAI) company under Gibson. Until recently Replogle cones have only been available directly to custom builders and manufactures and have been used by OMI, OAI, Gibson, Scheerhorn, Crafters of Tennessee, Beard, Owens, Wechter, Weber, and Regal (Saga Music) amongst others. Now, these “Original Equipment” cones are available directly to individual players and builders around the world.
The History. Mike Replogle learned the art of hand-spinning resonators directly from “the Old Man”, an old-school metal spinner that immigrated to the US and was the spinner-behind-the-scenes for virtually every resonator since the 1960’s. Replogle studied, practiced, and perfected his hand-spinning technique under the direct tutelage of the Old Man in his retirement, preserving the legacy of the authentic Dobro cones for future generations.
