I just purchased yet another 2001 and it requires a complete rebuild and bath. Should I go back with the flat washer resonators as original or selmer style red plastic?

Size matters more than material. Talk to your tech. What do they stock?

What do you have on your other 2001 tenors? Do you want more of the same, or are you seeking change?

I have been through this and I promise you it absolutely doesn't matter. All that matters is that the pads and properly seated and that you the resonators are in and of sufficient size and properly installed on the pads. If you like the look of the metal as I do and can spring for the extra $150 or so then go for it, otherwise the plastic resos will be just as good.

YES exactly correct. SIZE MATTERS. Material of resos doesn't. You need a hard smooth surface, metal or plastic.

That is a deal, though it’s in Israel and the seller has limited feedback, so not without risk.

I saw that this morning. Nice closet horn. If I didn't already have 3 and one being overhauled I would definitely bid on it.

My tech has the domed and for only an additional $25 with the overhaul and sonic bath at $560. Thanks Larry

My other B&S have the flat metal resos and thought it would be nice to put domed one on since tech has them in stock.

You might try Nojouks resos (pronounced “noyek”). They are the crinkly metal ones. My tech likes them for maximum power.

I took a look at those as well as other Curt Alterac offers. My tech says he feels more comfortable using the ones he has in stock with the pads he has privately made.

He has overhauled three other tenors for me and his set up works well for me. I have had him use the selmer red resos on a Selmer SA80II and it played nice as well.

I went with domed metal resos instead of flat.
