PostForum Section: Pedal Steel   Posted: 11 Aug 2018 7:07 pm   Subject: Quick and Easy E9th Tempered Tuning
Just created two presets on my Peterson HD tuner (open and pedal/knees) using Bob's tempered tuning. Sounds good to my ear. Looking forward to hearing it with other instruments.

Appreciate the ideas, everyone.

The challenge with using a slide, as you'll see in the pics, is we're all used to arching our index finger to both provide pressure as well as bring the finger up wh ...

PostForum Section: Electronics   Posted: 8 Jul 2018 5:33 pm   Subject: Direct Box For Ext Speaker Out On Amp

You have to do a bit of detective work. Look at the black and red wires coming off the two 9v batteries. If you see the black wire from Battery A connected to the red wire of Battery B, the you're p ...
