The Money Shot: Mule Resophonic Single Cone Resonator
Mule Resophonic instruments are hand-built by former Huss & Dalton luthier Matt Eich in Saginaw, Michigan. His beautiful, 1930s-inspired creations are achingly cool, and this Single Cone Resonator is no exception.
A steel-body, single-cone, biscuit bridge resonator with a slotted headstock option and a neck that joins the body between the 12th and 13th frets, the Mule has an old-time tone that’s so evocative it transports you immediately to the era of crackly 78rpm blues on shellac.
Head to UK boutique store James’ Home Of Tone (homeoftone.co.uk) to order, or visit muleresophonic.com to hear various models in action and find out why players of the calibre of Kelly Joe Phelps and Charlie Parr rate Eich’s guitars so highly.
