The very best for your Tricone !
RichardO, 04.02.2015
National Resophonic (NRP, for short) make the very best (replacement) cones for your Tricone and yhe two sets I bought are very high quality. After much experimentation of cone design and aluminium alloys, NRP came out with their new improved cone, in perhaps 2009, or maybe earlier, and call it their Hot-Rod version. The older version were STILL the best you can get, then they improvemed them a lot more !
I think the NRP Hot-Rod Tricone cones are even closer in sound to original Tricone National cones (from the 1920's and 1930's) than even the 9.5" single cones that they do for their own guitars (and replacements for old National cones).
The 9.5" NRP Hot-Rod single cones have a slightly different sound than the originals (but still very good), but amazingly, I hear far less difference with these Tricone replacement cones, other than they are LOUDER than the original cones, and perhaps a fatter sound too. The set of three cones were 2g lighter than the set in my 1931 roundneck Tricone and 3g lighter than my 1927 squareneck Tricone - so should be even more responsive. Tey certainly sound it !
I bought two sets of Tricone cones AND two 9.5" single cones.
The nest you can buy !
Packaged safely for shipping from Germany to Scotland and these delicate items arrived unscathed.

upgrading van Recording King Tricone
20.01.2016
Wilde van elektrische lapsteel overstappen naar akoestisch. Kocht bij Thomann een Recording King Tricone, toendertijd (aantal jaren geleden), dacht ik, voor ca 440 euro. Erg weinig geld voor een tricone. Durfde het wel aan. Nog nooit teleurgesteld door Thomann. Heb nog even vooraf gebeld. Werd perfect geïnformeerd over de geluidsbeperkingen van het instrument. Hun eerlijk advies; gezien mijn budgetaire beperkingen eerst proberen. Later eventuele upgrading met National Reso-Phonic Tricone Resonators. Heb tijdje zo gespeeld (Hawaiian music en Blue Grass). Was niet echt gelukkig. Heb weer overlegd, nu gemaild, en toen de drie National Resonators gekocht en geïnstalleerd. Simpele klus. Het resultaat? Echt, en dat meen ik, verbluffend. Absoluut verbluffend. Stuk minder dan een moderne National Reso-Phonic Tricone, maar...... BETER dan een twintiger/dertiger jaren National Tricone, series one (tweede hands marktwaarde in de duizenden dollars/euro's), die ik af en toe voor optredens leen.

Om de authentieke toon in Hawaii music te handhaven gebruik ik bij samenspel een Sure SM57LC mic. Voor de Blue Grass, een duidelijk ander genre, gebruik ik een heel simpele, maar uiterst effectieve Harley Benton Transducer van slechts Euro 11,90, waarvan ik de pick-up ter hoogte van de derde hoogste snaar simpelweg met dubbelzijdig tape tegen de brug geplakt heb. Werkt perfect!
Met de toonregeling van de versterker corrigeer ik het grootste gedeelte van het verlies van ca. 20% aan dat specifieke, akoestische geluid.

Schön, dass man die NRP Cones nun auch hier ordern kann!
Markus6978, 30.05.2015
Zu den Cones muss man nicht viel sagen: sie klingen super und sind ein perfekter Ersatz für alte bzw. defekte Cones einer Tricone. Sie sind aber nicht ganz so präzise gearbeitet wie die letzten, die ich vor 8 Jahren bei NRP bestellte.
Man muss genau messen, ob sie mit 15,09mm Durchmesser in die eigene Tricone passen: In eine normale Continental oder Ozark Tricone passen sie z.B. nicht, ich habe dafür Dichtungspapier einsetzen müssen, da die originalen Cones 2,5 mm kleiner im Durchmesser waren.
Die Cones kommen in einem durchsichtigen Tütchen, das schützt sie grundsätzlich gar nicht, man darf deshalb nichts anders als die Cones ordern: ein guter Freund konnte seine Cones gleich wieder zurückschicken, weil er noch weitere Sachen mitbestellt hatte, die dann auf dem Transportweg die Schokoladenpapier-dünnen Cones demoliert hatten.
Also gut anschauen nach dem Auspacken!
