Recording King has added another resonator to its lineup, the Dirty 30s Resonator in Matte Black.

Joining two existing color iterations of the Dirty 30s Resonator – Sunburst Matte and Wabash Blue – the new model follows two parlor-sized additions to RK's product range that arrived last year, the Parlor Metal Body Resonator and Swamp Dog Parlor.

Construction-wise, the Dirty 30s Single 0 Resonator boasts a spruce top with a white wood back and sides, a pedestal-style soundwell with a hand-spun 9.5-inch European cone, a nato neck with a 20-fret ovangkol fingerboard and a biscuit bridge.

Says Recording King: “The f-holes are placed to optimize bass and treble frequencies as they exit the body for the perfect dry, throaty resonator tone.”

Other features include a a 25.4-inch scale length, vintage-style plastic button tuners, contemporary C-shaped neck profile and a rosewood headstock overlay.

The Dirty 30s Single 0 Resonator in Matte Black is available now via selected dealers. For more information, head to Recording King.
