PostForum Section: Pedal Steel   Posted: 29 Jul 2020 10:09 pm   Subject: Thoughts about BMI pedal steels
Having worked on them and ZB's and about everything else the BMI is easier to work on and setup different copedents on than a ZB. It still uses flat bars to pivot the pulls but does not use the yoke ...

Mike is one of my very favorite steel pickers. He plays very tasteful for singers and doesn't play unnecessary things just because he can. He plays to fit the song and the artist. Great player!

The transformers on the stereo outs give a good meaty solid sound. Some of their bigger boards back then had transformers on every input channel. You have to buy studio preamps now to get that same so ...

I could never work any instrument in Willie's band and not because he kinda talks his way through the song but because he sings so far behind the beat. Players must have to seriously tune him out on s ...

Turned out the Zum pickup was bad; but it sounded great with the PP pickup.

That's right. I always tell new studio owners there is no right or wrong way to wire things. It only becomes wrong when one set of wires don't match all the others.

Probably the best bell cranks ever made when they employ this type of Doggone Dogbones. If I'm not mistaken I believe they fit MCI/EMCI bellcranks as well as Carter.
