Cone of Resonation

I replaced a Wechter/Sheerhorn (China) cone with the Beard Reso Cone. It seems to be less shrill than the original which was what I was going for.

Easy-Peasy install.

Replacement for unknown cone in high-end round neck

By

Stewmac's communication on this was first rate. (I was concerned about tension screw fit and I requested measurements on tension screw.) I was able to use the customized Weber tension screw that came with the Weber adjustable saddle with this particular cone without problem. The cone was well made and fit my Weber resonator without having to do any trimming on the cone rim.

Didn't fit my Dobro without modification

I have a 1979 Dobro 60DS. I assumed (incorrectly) that it would fit my Dobro. Ignorance on my part, but it would have been nice if Stew-Mac pointed out it will not fit an OMI instrument (and possibly others). On the plus side, there was a marked improvement in tone. I don't know if I would automatically spend $70 on a new cone but the threaded insert on my (original) cone was messed up so I pretty much had to replace it....and opted for a "better" one rather than just a $13 Chinese replacement. Bottom line, I don't regret the purchase but I'm also smarter as a result.

Wow!

I put this in my old Rogue Dobro that was rattling. I had considered buying a new dobro, but this and the Replogle spider bridge took care of all the problems. Did require a little dremel work to fit, but that was easy.

Put this in any FR50 that comes in or anywhere near your shop. Sounds great and is a massive improvement over the stock cone. Better highs and cleaner lows, but the same over all volume.

Totally worth the money!

I upgraded my Hound Dog Deluxe Squareneck with this cone and it really sounds great. The sound is warm and rich and it delivers a nice punch and lots of volume. The replacement is straight forward, just follow the instructions found on the website. Keep in mind that the cone is very delicate, be careful when you install it.

I expected more.

I bought and installed the Beard cone and based on the reviews here, was expecting some sort of religious-like revelation. It was not at all like that, probably due to my lack of ôset up savvyö. My ôDobro likeö guitar is Chinese made for which I paid about $300. (You are lucky to see ANY rezos in this country!) It now has a Beard bone nut and the Legend cone. It is not louder, does not seem to sustain more, nor does it have a very different sound but where the Beard makes a difference is in clarity. Defiantly a smoother and more clearly defined sound. I only wish there was some expert here in South Africa who could ratify my installation efforts or get me more out of it. Happy. Tuners next.
