View Full Version : Pickup installation for a RECORDING KING RESONATOR

12-18-2011, 08:46 PM
I got my son a Recording King Resonator for Christmas. I want to install a pickup for him but not sure which way to go. I found two companies that sell pickups for Resonator guitars: www.kksound.com and www.schattendesign.com Each of the companies sells two different styles of pickups for Resonators. Do any of you out there have any experience installing pickups on a resonator? Would love to get steered in the right direction by someone who has done this before. Thanks

Sorry, I can't help you...
...but I thought the idea of a resonator was so you wouldn't need to amplify it.
I had that same uke and it was Loud.

You are correct Paul, it is loud for a uke, but not as loud as his band. Will have to plug in to be heard over drums, bass and lead singer.
He plays in a cool little band called, "Grounded". They are really good for kids aged 9-13. They have already played one show and look forward to playing more.
