An easy way to fit a lowe cone ( or any reso cone) with a modified thru neck.

1, glue in a hardwood strip firmly onto the bottom of the box

2, add another piece of hardwood to bring up the height (if needed). You could add a shim to get a bit of neck angle to it.

I fixed the neck down with two screws before attaching the fretboard. make sure the screws go into the hardwood strip on the bottom of the box.

Just beautiful!  How about  sound samples, acoustically and electrically!  Thanks.

thanks robert!

That was great, merle.  Nice full-bodied growl!  I've downloaded it to my collection of cbg videos.  By the way, is your resonator cone one of those $25 items we often see advertised on our "favorite" website?  Thanks!

Awesome Merle, thanks for posting this!

 

Robert, you can buy the cones from Old Lowe by clicking the ad on any Clubhouse page.

besides drooling over the various builds, i find this answers a question i was just asking. the more i navigate this site the better i like it. thanks for this.

so that cone sits right on top of the wood on the bottom of box- in other words it doesn't just hang to the top vibrating?

there has to be a gap so the cone can resonate freely. i think from memory the gap is about 6mm on this one.

the real trick is to have a thicker soundboard so the cone rings out. get a cone from oldlowe and have a try!
