G9201 resonator cone issue

1

Just picked up a G9201 Resonator. Has a pretty hard string buzz and I suspect a compressed cone. Anyone know where I can get a replacement? Is there a better upgrade?

Thanks Slim. Saw that one, just wasn't sure if an original from Gretsch would be better.

So.......here’s the latest incarnation of my Gretsch reso. New Hot Rod cone and bridge, Lace Ultra Slim humbucker and Vol/Tone controls. The string buzz is gone and it’s really loud and resonant.

You're a braver man than I, Powdog! I've considered getting an extra coverplate to install a pickup and pots, but yours are drilled right into the body! I bet it rips

I had a pretty bad rattle/ buzz from mine as well. I don’t remember exactly what I did to fix it, but it did involve fiddling With the cone a bit. I think I just moved it a tiny amount.
