Bob -- very interesting. I've got a Japanese bottlecap, brand name "Maya," whose resonator was lost decades ago. I've just bought a Bart Reiter opeback and I'm learning clawhammer, but it strikes me that in this Maya I've got the makings of a pretty good camping/backyard knockabout openback. I've been thinking about doing pretty much what you've done, lining the rim. Does your modded Epi make a reasonably good openback sound without the resonator? As is, the tone is harsh and metallic unless I tone it down with various muting strategies -- pieces of sponge, bandanna, etc. "Riley Stokes" actually Bruce Thorstad, Dresser Wis.
