I play an LA Sax Big Lip X tenor sax, unlacquered. I’m not sure how old it is, and since LA Sax was bought by Geimenhardt, they aren’t able to tell me either.
Anyway, I haven’t ever come across resonators like these - they have Lila a baby bottle nipple on them. I’ll try to attach a pic.
Is anyone familiar with these?

I think the brand suffers from the 90's versions. These are nothing like those 90s horns. These are Made in Taiwan and as good as any other top Taiwan brand.
I know there is a lot of debate on this subject, but I think the combination of these resos and mine being unlacquered ads a warmness/darkness to the sound. But that’s my own opinion.
My only issue is that the low Eb key is too close to the D key. If I have the Eb key pressed a hair before pressing D, it gets in the way. But my repair guy said he can fix that by shaving a bit off the Eb key.
