My cheap roundneck resonator import just turned into a higher profile guitar thanks to the Beard Cone. When the set up is done and strings are back on place, the difference is already noticeable: The sound is bassier and high notes on the 12th fret and beyond sound clearer. The full power of the cone will be achieved as the guitar is played throughout the upcoming weeks and the cone fits more and more the structure of the guitar. It already sounds good, it will get even better. Let down: The cone is very thin and fragile. Its easily bendable. Use caution setting up your guitar. It may not fit your guitar for some minor inches - in my case 0,07 inches/2 mm. Again, use caution and steady hands, and trim around the cone to obtain a shape that fits inside your guitar without forcing it, otherwise it will bend. Overall: It is worth for the difference of sound you obtain in your resonator guitar and get it closer to a real Beard or National.
I built a Dobro without a sound well, it is also Dreadnought size. I tried the biscuit bridge which was perfect but would not work with my design. I'll use the Spider bridge instead. The Beard cones are very well made and I would rate them as one of the best available
