This is an instance where you should be adding your response to the original thread rather than starting a redundant one.Someone back in 2003 asked about Noyek resos: ====>>>
I'm looking to give a little edge and brightness to my sound. Does anyone know if these resonators will bring the desired effect??? <<<====
Yes, this horn sounded different, but it would have sounded different with oversize resos of any material. This has been discussed ad nauseum.BUT, as you see the size of the Noyeks are huge! I think this is contributing a lot to why this set up sounds so "brash and forward". Maybe smaller Noyeks would have left more room to mellow out when desired?
So if you think putting Noyek resos will "brighten up 'yo sound" maybe maybe not but I can say in this experiment the horn sounded very different because of them.
You need to control the experiment and have only one variable: size or geometry (flat, dome, wavy, etc.) or material. Size matters most.
