I’m trying to put a decent top tension together.
So far, all I’ve got is the pot.

I realize it’s a long shot, but I thought I’d check with everybody to see if there is a decent resonator out there, looking for a good home, on a Prucha TT pot.

Check with Clancy Mullins. He's a member here and turns out some fine work. I recently saw a top tension resonator in the classified ads that he was offering for sale. If it's been sold, he will probably have another one for sale soon.

Thank you Mark!

Clancy Mullins responded to me via PM, and I've heard that he makes great TT resonators, and this is another endorsement for his work.
I'm considering ordering up a new resonator from Mr. Mullins, Mr. Gill or Mr. Prucha, and I will have to do that if I can't scare up an orphan resonator.
I do love to recycle the neglected, inactive or homeless parts when I can find them.

I saw a very nice walnut "Massif" resonator on a Prucha TT Bat, I believe, at Greg Boyd's shop in Montana.
I am not sure of the differences between these craftsmen's work. I got the impression that Mr. Prucha uses one piece to turn the back, and then "tunes" it, like the back of a violin...
is that right?

The two Mastertone pre-war resonators that Steve Gill made me are just perfect in every way, and he is a pleasure to work with.

I read nothing but great things about Mr. Gill and Mr. Mullins and Mr. Prucha here on the Hangout.
