G9201 resonator cone issue


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.


These guys might know:

6’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.
