    I couldn't hear much, if any, difference.

    (But, I'm getting older these days, so it may be my hearing isn't as good as a younger persons.)

    No, me neither Keith. I think the tin lid is a nice idea that simply doesn't work. One chap reckons that resonators have to be curved and wooden, so I will try that next.

    Me thinks there simply has to be some space between the back of the pot and the resonator for this to work, no matter the material its made of else the sound waves are trapped.
    This space reserved for a smart or witty comment or a famous quote. It may also be used to promote my accomplishments should I ever accomplish anything worth sharing.

    Aha, the plot thickens...'some space between the back of the pot' sounds plausible. My wife has found an old circular copper pan,which is a perfect fit as a resonator, so I will see how that goes for a while.

    Hmmmm. An American biscuit is not a sweet (cookie). It is a type of bread (bun-like) that one drowns in gravy or slathers with butter.

    Very tasty but not reccomended for dieters.

    That would be a suet dumpling . I've had biscuits, delicious.Like savoury sponge cake . Dumplings are white flour and suet and water .
