Replogle Resonators Spider Cone, Classic 10 1/2 Series
The Replogle Reso Classic “10 1/2” Series Spider-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 the OEM replacement cone for Dobros manufactured since the late 1960’s and all the way through the Gibson days.
Note: The Classi “10 1/2″ spider-style resonator cone measures an actual 10.5625″ net cone diameter. The edges may be trimmed by a skilled luthier to fit a smaller 10.5″ diameter sound well, but we recommend using the Replogle D15 cone instead, with the smaller diameter of 10.4375”.
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) among 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.
