Not long ago I overhauled a Buescher. It had all the original snap in resos. I punched the holes out bigger on some regular pads after removing the plastic resos. I shellaced the pad in and put the snap back on. I have another horn that someone removed the snaps and spuds. My opinion on the snap in resos, is that they are much smaller compared to normal resos. Thus if the purpose of having a resonator is for the sound enhancement then the undersized snap in resos don't really make sense. The next Buescher that I find overhauled without the snaps will be no big deal to me. It wont effect my decision on buying it. I won't remove them if they are there because of resale. I care a lot more about the norton springs being present than the snaps.Curious why its a big deal to some.
