Acoustic Bass - Regal Resonator vs. Olympia ABG

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by SpruceApple, Feb 20, 2003.

  1. A lot of people seem to say that the Olympia ABG and the Regal/Johnson resonator basses produce good volume for acoustic jams and are both good values.

    How do the tones compare?

    I haven't been able to find a resonator bass to play, but have listened to them on the Folk of the Woods website and they seem a little thin. I like the tone of the Olympia, but the size of the instrument is a little uncomfortable.

    I'd appreciate opinions from folks who have played/heard both.
