These days largely used for slide playing, it easy to forget that the Resonator was the first amplified guitar, created at a time when guitar was mostly relegated to a rhythmic role in the Big Band era. The introduction of the Resonator cone allowed guitarists to compete in volume with other instruments for the melodic role, forever changing guitar's role in Western music.

Restoring the heritage of the original first resonator instruments, the team at National Reso-Phonic measured old resonator instruments of all makes and designs, and produce reproductions alongside new designs under the "National" brand name and trade mark, as originally used by the National String Instrument Corporation.
