National RM-1 hot plate

    I am considering a Hot Plate for my RM-1. Would appreciate comments by those who have heard a RM-1 with a Hot Plate or played same. Does installing the Hot Plate affect how the instrument plays when not amplified?

    My RM-1 had a hotplate installed when I bought it so I don't know if would sound any different without one. I will say that IMHO it has great tone and is plenty loud when not amplified. I've only plugged it into a couple guitar amps but thought the overall sound was warmer when amplified.

    I had mine first without and installed the hotplate. No difference in the acoustic sound.
