I think I can answer that. Because I do us ...

PostForum Section: Pedal Steel   Posted: 19 Sep 2020 10:16 am   Subject: Anyone not lower their 4th string E-Eb?
Something that is very important to me is to try to have changes on most strings that allow me to land on a chordal tone no matter what fret and position (i.e. pedals up, pedals down, A/F, F#/Eb, etc. ...

That's awesome. I started on a Fender too, but then had a bunch of more modern steels. When I got my Marlen, it felt like I got back a little of that guitar-like tone that the Fender had.
