New Line of Resophonics from Recording King

We learn via our friends at The Bluegrass Blog Recording King have released a series of resophonic instruments, including both tricone and single cone biscuit bridge models, a mandolin, and a ukelele. These are all brass-bodied instruments, and the guitars are available in round-neck and square-neck models. Look for more information on the Recording King website.

Weber reso models debut

The Bluegrass Blog reports that Bruce Weber's company is celebrating it's 10th anniversary by introducing a line of resophonic guitars. Apparently there will be models available in both square- and round-neck versions, as well as spider-bridge and biscuit-bridge models, all available in four wood combinations. Good luck to Bruce and the gang and thanks for giving the reso community additional choices. See the Bluegrass Blog and Weber's web site for more information.

For some reason though, they don't have an Ivan Rosenberg model.

For those who aren't familiar with Josh, here he's slinging the bro in a jam from Galax this past August.
