I'm looking for a Marlen pedal rod. Not sure what the age of the rod would be, but something that would match the pictures. Does anyone have one?

My Marlen pedal rods are aluminum and have those spring loaded connectors at both ends. Your rod looks more like a third-style Emmons rod.

Are you saying that this is not a Marlen rod?

I have had three Marlens, and none had your Emmons-looking rods.

That being said, I have a January 1964 Emmons that was built with some Marlen parts.

To what kind of fitting do your pedal rods connect? A notch or a nipple or a hole?

Chris - the rod attaches to a ball-type connector.

John - Yes, I contacted Michael and will order one through him. It's for a Marlen U12 that I'll be selling.

I meant how does it to connect at the cross shaft crank? Does the hook go into a hole, around a notch, or is there a nipple there too?

Michael Yahl is a great asset to the pedal steel guitar world.

He machines great parts, sources important parts for us and provides service swiftly at a great price. Sometimes you may need to wait to have him machine some specific pieces, but you can be confident you will get quality replacement parts at a great value.
