I would like to hear from those who own and/or have personal experience with a resonator bass. Until recently, I didn't know they existed! I normally play an acoustic upright and also own a P-bass, an acoustic electric and an electric upright. I am looking for something that will allow me to jam with two or three acoustic players (old-time, bluegrass & gospel) and still be heard. I am in my 70's and get tired of dragging "the beast" everywhere I go to play. Usually an amp is a no no, so that leaves out the full electrics. The acoustic electric is okay to work out songs on or play with one guitar, but lacks volume unless hooked up. (Of course amps are heavy too.) Will the resonator bass give me what I want?
