Hey folks. So I want to make myself a simple little three string cigar box guitar, and I want to know how much trouble I'd have to go through to stick a resonator in there. I've seen pictures of folks making resonators out of altoid tins and pie pans and crap like that, but I just have no idea how exactly a resonator works.

Anybody mind helping me out here?

I just learn the formula, apply it to a key, and use said notes on fretboard. Why? Cuz I'm not a pussy.

Try--tedcrocker.com/cbgreso. Best design I've seen.


THIS. This is exactly what I'm talking about. I just can't wrap my mind about the mechanics of the device from the pictures, though.. D:

This is what I'm thinking from looking at these images..

Two metal bowl-shaped things seated in one another, one of which protrudes from the front of the instrument slightly and acts, in part, as the bridge..

I'll shoot the guy an email, lol.
