I dont know if anyone ever includes these in their builds. My buddy started making these cones...they are hot! I know there are reso ukes out there, but dunno what builder thoughts are about them...here's a link

Cool. Looks kinda like a Dobro style cone but without the spider bridge. Any sound clips of them?
Polishing the brass might be a drag someday though :D

I admittedly don't know much about resonators but I thought the coverplate played an integral part in the tone of a resonator instrument. Is that not the case?

depends on how the cone is made...from my understanding, if the cone is made well enough, you dont need the cover plate.
