The Recording King Parlor Metal Body Resonator resonator puts traditional reso style into a small body design that packs a punch.
True resonator tone begins with a classic nickel-plated bell brass body and RK’s own full-size hand-spun 9.5" cone. This is the same custom cone from RK’s best-selling resonators like the Swamp Dog.
Thanks to the smaller body size and 24-¼” scale length, the Parlor Resonator has a slightly different voice than other metal body instruments. It has all the swampiness and mid range of a classic biscuit-style metal body, but the unique design adds a little more treble shimmer, giving it extra top-end clarity.
Recording King guitars never cut corners on the building blocks of great tone, and the Parlor Resonator delivers classic sound, tons of vibe and roadworthy reliability whether you’re just discovering resonator, or you’re a professional player.
