The Swamp Dog Parlor has it all: classic resonator tone in a bell brass body, rusty vintage mojo, and one of the best-sounding resonator cones available. 

The Swamp Dog Parlor’s traditional resonator tone begins with a classic bell brass parlor-size body and RK’s own full-size hand-spun 9.5" cone. RK uses the same custom cone in its bigger sibling, the best-selling Swamp Dog. 

Thanks to the smaller body size and 24-¼” scale length, the Swamp Dog Parlor has a different voice than other metal body instruments. It has all the swampiness and midrange of classic biscuit-style metal bodies, but the unique design adds more treble shimmer, for extra top-end clarity. 

Recording King guitars never cut corners on great tone, and the Swamp Dog Parlor delivers classic sound and tons of mojo, whether you’re just discovering resonator, or you’re a professional player.
