Overview

Recording King's classic tricone resonator has three 6" Recording King cones that transfer incredibly loud tones through the body of the guitar. The cones are positioned with two on the bass side and one on the treble side, giving an EQ balance with a sweeter, warmer sound.

This tricone is made from nickel-plated bell brass and features a screen coverplate and T-shaped bridge with an ebony and maple saddle. The bridge is connected to the center of each cone so that when the strings are hit, the vibrations run through the saddle and then into the bridge. This tricone has a distinct tone and long sustain characterized by brilliant overtones and a natural ambiance only found in resonator instruments.

Comments about Recording King RM-991 Tricone Resonator Guitar with Roundneck:

Workmanship and craftsman ship are great. Chinese made, but great. Materials are good. A part of me wonders if this will set of a Geiger counter or the finish wears off exactly in 9 months and I'm looking like Neo in the Matrix after downing the red pill.

Tone is great. Compatible to the videos out on this model out in youtube land. Down side is its heavy. Like bad Les Paul 8 lbs or so heavy. But it rings man. It rings, like the bells in my mom's old church in the motherland with its late 16th century bells.

The one I got seems warmer and smoother than the raw tin can effect so craved by connoisseurs, but I like it. If I go punk rock and really go with down strokes and go to town, the sheet metal ring comes out. It's not rainsongy hollow but not exactly the grit / rasp one would come to expect.

With a metal or glass slide. WOW. Mikey I think he likey.

Strings are pretty heavy, 13's or 14's. I'm still waiting on the email from Recording King to tell me what stock strings these things are equipped with. I suspect if I go Taylor or Martin route and throw 11's or 12's it sound crazy nasally.

The fact it's made in China, may turn down some people,but ever since Chinese factories paid money for American craftsman and women to show them the deal when it comes to Americana goods like surfboards, guitars, cars, electronics etc, some Chinese goods like guitars went from 80's Gibson and CBS Fender going out of tune every three seconds to getting better than Mexican / Baja Strat and reaching Fender Japan quality.

What would a Cali guy be doing with this? I saw it's good for blues and blues grass, maybe country. But the fly in the ointment is I use this for pop and currents. Could play blues and I would love to, I am still learning. Contrary to popular belief, Blues is hard like Classical Guitar is easy. Any guitar is hard but soul moving blues lick for someone who grew up DJ, hip hopping and beatboxing and music doxxing, it'll come later.
