Greetings from the Netherlands

I was Tricone hunting on the internet and found by coincidence this awesome forum. Lots of good information about this here. I am a lap-style blues, bluegrass and Celtic folk player from the Netherlands. Dobro and Weissenborn. With Alan Laws which is a fabulous blues harp player originally from London UK we form a duo “The Mubirds” . For a good blues sound I am searching for a good squareneck Tricone resonator. I think I will go for an Amistar. One of the few factories that make there own body’s and necks.

Hoi Marcel,

Ik kreeg de Resolian net gisteren binnen. Ik had al op verschillen forums gelezen dat je wel wat moet aanpassen hier en daar, en dat heb ik dan ook gedaan. De neck stick wat afgeschaafd en een mushroom meer naar de neck verplaatst. ook het gat tussen de neck stick en de achterkant netjes opgevuld met een stukje mahonie. Nu nog een Hot Rod National cone met nieuwe biscuit. Nou ja, ik vind het eigenlijk ook wel leuk om te doen dus....

Groet, Rene

Yeh, sorry. I’ll try to translate this in sort of English.

I got my Resolian yesterday. I read on different forums about some modifications for this tin can. So I did a little neck stick modification and I placed one mushroom more to the neck and filled up the gap at the end of the neck stick with a piece of mahogany. It’s a big improvement. Incredible volume and a sort of echo box sound, very nice! Now only the stock cone needs transplantation with a Hot Rod National cone with biscuit. For me this is just fun to do this….

Another improvement idea: would it make sense to put a baffle (like in a dobro) in the waist of the guitar? Maybe I try this in the future.

I'm new to the site and not sure I'll use the right words but here goes. I watched your you tube vids and loved them. While I might not know the right blues lingo I know the sound I appreciate and you've captured it. I look forward to more.
