New Innovation! …. Customize the sound of your biscuit-bridge resonator guitar with a Rosewood biscuit.
Replogle Reso biscuit bridges are now available in Rosewood! The time-honored tone of this hardwood provides the strength and volume of the normal maple biscuit, but adds a brilliance and tone that only rosewood traditionally can deliver.
Mike Replogle says, “Rosewood is a tonal hardwood that is used for good reason on acoustic guitar fingerboards and bridges. It enhances the string’s vibrational transfer and adds a customization for the resonator guitar that hasnt been available”
Why does the biscuit matter?
“Luthiers and manufacturers may upgrade their resonator cones and other parts, but then they install a soft piece of wood on the bridge and/or saddle… usually made from available scrap,” says Mike Replogle. “That effectively undoes all the hard work and kills the reso’s tone and projection. My hand selected, quarter-sawn hardwood completes the circle and give that final push for the best tone and projection possible.”
In addition, Replogle Biscuit bridges are beveled on either side of the saddle slot. “Beveling the biscuit decreases the mass that can deaden the cone along the bridge contact area”, says Replogle, ” and that extra response allows the vibrations to better transfer to the cone”.
Replogle Biscuits fit the Replogle Saddles (Please note that we recommend pairing the Replogle biscuits and saddles for best results)
