Saturday, December 29, 2012, the world said farewell to a legend, and I began to mourn the loss of my dear friend and lifelong inspiration, Mike Auldridge. With family at his side, he did leave us, but will be forever missed and remembered by those who admired and loved him. Though it is no consolation at this time, I am grateful that his art was left behind.
I will always cherish the hours of albums which remain, and know, with certainty, that they will continue to inspire and bring joy to young and old alike.

This Cone design is a result of many years of refining the process of hand-spinning cones The Legend Cone TM is Triple Spun from a specific aluminum alloy. The shape has been modified from a traditional style cone to produce a clear bell-like tone and lower resonant frequency. The Triple Spun process and highly polished finish improve response and sustain. Like all Beard cones, I personally spin each one by hand to exacting standards. The Legend Cone will improve the Volume and tone of any resonator guitar.
