Replogle Resonators Spider Cone, Standard 10 1/2 Series
The Replogle Reso Standard “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 Standard “10 1/2″ spider-style resonator cone measures an actual 10.4375″ net cone diameter. The edges are rolled up to create a bead that reinforces the strength and durability of the cone edges and yields a slightly smaller diameter of 10.4375”. These cones may NOT be trimmed. The Standard “10 1/2″ spider resonator is perfect for some brands that use an actual 10.5” resonator sound well 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) 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.
