I lower 5 & 6 on both my push pulls and didn’t do anything special and don’t notice the slack. I lower 6 on RKL and 5 on a vertical. I also have the 6th string that pulls back up a half tone w ...

Thanks Paddy, he doesn’t want the Franklin pedal. Do you know of a C6th pull Incan put on it? Pedal 9 is pedal that drops bottom C to A, 8 was nothing and 7,6,5, and 4 are normal C6th set up.

On a D-10 with nine pedals, what is the extra pedal usually do on C6th? Have one I’m tweaking out and has 9 pedals but 8 isn’t doing anything so need to put something on it, lol.

Yes, they are separate changes on separate levers so they must be tuned individually. Just one bell crank only for each pull. The longer pull tunes at the end plate stop screw, the shorter pull tunes ...

John, I read your question as for instance, 6th string, lowering a half tone and a whole tone. That's what I call a double lower. Yes, it can be done with a screw tuner just like for the 4th string ex ...

Dennis, there should be a pull rod with nylon tuner thru it connected to a bell crank on second string lower. As Billy said, then you can adjust the feel for a half stop.

You have to use A pedal, its what they been calling a fake split but I think its real, lol. There are several moves like minor that you can't get with it but I always use it with A pedal anyway.
