Maestro Star Classic Resonators - Silver Plated Brass 11.5mm
Resonators are attached to the pad with a rivet and reflect sound back into the bore of the Saxophone. While there are a lot of theories in the Saxophone repair field about the different sizes, shapes, and types of metals used in resonators, it is often difficult to pinpoint with certainty the specific differences that resonators make. Generally, increased surface area of the resonator is attributed to free-blowing and 'brightness'. Less surface area is attributed to a 'darker' sound. Because the resonator is only one contributor among many factors in sound production, it is best to let the player decide what they like best. Music Medic Maestro resonators also offer an interesting aesthetic option for players looking to customise their horn.
From least surface area to most, Music Medic resonators go from: rivet, flat metal, domed, seamless domed, Maestro Classic, and Maestro Airtight.
Players who are seeking more projection will choose Maestro resonators. Maestro resonators are also available in various raw or plated materials, which will affect the potential resonance of the sound produced. The Silver Plating on these Brass resonators adds extra weight and therefore depth to the tonal core.
