I found I was using my lap steel with palm levers less and less, so I eventually built it into my new resonator guitar. (See the above thread.)
Now I use it almost every day.

Tom-
I haven't really gotten into the Deusie...I started playing dobro and use that as my "more portable" rig...but I do still like that tuning. I just need to dedicate enough time to develop the muscle memory to make the levers be second-nature and play cleanly while holding them...not a big deal, but not instantaneous...it is a good "mini pedal steel" instrument...

...but what I'll do instead is sell the instrument, if anyone wants it...the dobro is really pulling me in...I haven't taken the Deusie out of its case for a very long time...anybody out there interested? This one has a custom hard case, roller nut and nice palm lever for the third lever, makes it a lot more possible to play with 3 levers...


...and thanks for the comment on The Stubborn Lovers, I'm just lucky to play in a band with 3 singers who have the voices of angels...

...then get the best of both worlds and buy the Deusie that's made specifically for Dobro. Winking

Here's a vid of the Fairltale played by Luke Cyrus. It's actually a promotional vid for the Lehle volume pedal, but if you pick up the vid @ about the 1:45 mark, there's a clip of the guitar being played with the benders.

Hi, I love these things.. Been playing them for over ten years.. I have both models. I can't believe I'm just getting around to this, but I'm sitting here trying to lower my high D string a half step. (I'm doing variations on open D low to high D A D F# A D). What the hell am I doing wrong? I thought the middle hole on the bender angled it so it would lower the note and not raise it, as it does when you string thru the end of the bender. Get me? I want to lower the high D to a C# for a major Dmaj7 kind of thing.

This is going on the fairytale but I'm using the 3rd bender that came with the Pamona. It's fits but there are differences.. But I don't see how these differences would affect the problem of the string not lowering. Right now, the tension has just buried the bender into the bridge instead of keeping it up ready for a bend down.

Hope I'm explaining this well enough.. Btw I moved over to my Pamona to see if it worked on that one.. I strung it up thru the middle hole on the 2nd string and same deal. What am I doing wrong??

Thanks Steve! I can't play the clips without buying flip4mac.. Lame.. Is it something you could easily explain..? I know it's something simple and dumb that I'm not seeing yet.. Thanks again- Jess

Here's a Duesenberg (new model) being played throughout the entire 1 hour concert.....Calexico Live......cut to 23:00 for one of the tunes and 4:00 for another......not very much lever work but you get the idea of how it sounds......

Jesse-
You don't have to play the clips...just read the instructions and look at the picture...

Here's a close up of the Duesenberg that I modified for the resonator guitar that I built.
