John it is a beauty.. I have never played an internal resonator..is the volume and projection some where between a BG and OB banjo ?

It does not project in a focused way like a bluegrass banjo. It is still very much an open back. But a well-constructed IR enhances the tone because the chamber in the IR back encloses the bacon tone ring and actually "resonates." It creates a bigger or "wider" sound. I have said that it "fills the room - without being too much in your face."
