Great looks with solid projection and tone at an affordable price.

Recording King has been a well-regarded secret among professional resonator players for the last decade. Now anyone can get a professional-quality resonator at a great price in the Recording King Rattlesnake. The hand-spun Recording King cone is a world-class tone engine for classic reso tone and volume, and the open pedestal-style soundwell creates a uniquely loud and broad sonic palette. A removable handrest for quick adjustment, bone nut, and Grover tuning machines round out this instrument. All that's left to add is the actual snake rattle for true vintage mojo.
