My experience from many years of reso-playing ( both slide & fretted ) has been that spider-bridge & tricones both need at least mediums to sound good & meaty, but a decently-set-up single-cone biscuit-type should work fine with lights - that's assuming a good quality cone, of course; I suppose it has to do with the different bridge designs transmitting the string energy in different ways, & the biscuit-type being more direct/efficient than the other 2, or so I've always perceived.
