Quick Reference Guide
Best all around choice. Enhanced Projection, Richness, and Volume. Darker sounding than Nickel.
Brightest sound. The most edge. A noticeably more edgy sound than brass or silver. Great for R and B, rock set-ups. In general, nickel resonators make for a louder horn.
When used in combination with a lower baffle and big bore mouthpiece, nickel can be great for mainstream jazz - more power while maintaining a darker sound.
Similar to Brass in character due to the bass product being brass.
STERLING SILVER (SOLID)
Very similar to Brass in character. Added expense would be a consideration. Can be in matte finish.
Great sound qualities due to the gold in the finish.
SHAPE: DOME OR FLAT
Largely a personal choice. Either one sounds great. For further description see the "In Greater Detail and FAQ's" page section.
Enhanced presence and volume of sound.
Spun Finish: The textured, spun finish for which Reso-Tech is well known. More tonal color characteristics by virtue of the spun finish's subtle effect on overall sound.
Matte Finish: The appearance is a uniform matte finish. Same basic sound but with the cool, natural, subtle look of flat metal similar to the original Selmer nickel resonators.
Spun Finish Nickel Plated Resonators could be considered the creme de la cremes of the Nickel Reso-Tech resonators. They make for a brightness and different complexity of sound of the more aggressive finish.***
***Combination Nickel - Spun finish. An incredible resonator with edge and buzz to the sound. We proudly state that there is NO other resonator like it...
