PostForum Section: Pedal Steel   Posted: 10 Oct 2020 4:36 pm   Subject: 2nd string raise question
The first string goes to G# and the 2nd string goes to E. Some put it on a knee, I have it on a Zero pedal, which lets me raise them and then pull the E down to D with the whole tone drop of 2.

If you're not gigging (yet) and always practicing in the same room, I'd set the pedals thusly:

Before I'd do a DIY solution, I'd take it to a shoe repair shop, as most also do luggage repair.
You'd get a proper job as durable as the original.

The downside of using an off-standard setup is that you will be slower if you play someone else's guitar, and they'll be slower on yours.
I chose to put that change in a pedal, so that I can combine ...

My cabinet drop lessened by some 70 percent when I stopped pressing the pedals when I got to the stop.
A LOT of cabinet drop is the pedals tugging on the, ummm, cabinet.

It's a DPDT, center on switch.
I'm sure there are electronics supply companies in France.
Also, it's a fairly standard switch common in regular guitars.

I'd add it to P4 or perhaps a right-footed P7. I don't like having to hit a half-stop for the G note.

I agree with Brian; that didn't leave the factory like that.
I'd venture to say that the entire undercarriage is aftermarket, and fortunately by a cat who knew what s/he was doing.

It works well because it is full of solid mechanical stops.
Those with pull-release guitars will tell you that, once properly set, will be rock solid when it comes to tuning stability.

For what sort of value of "reasonable"?
The L-120 is a classic, but more expensive than the Moyo.
The Stage One is getting rave reviews.

I'd have to see these on my big monitor to make sense of it. But if a string lowers, something has to pull it back.

Sometimes Jerry will rewind Sho-Bud pickups, and sometimes he only rewinds his, and makes his own.
But if you tell him you want to sound like a Bud, he'll make you something close.
