I just had Doug build one for me (4x5) with standard Emmons pedals, but the levers were slightly unorthodox and my own custom spec. He did this for me at the regular price for an Encore, but I don’t ...

One thing you have to be careful of is that the SE9 setting is for standard cabinet drop of a lot of pedal steels. The old MSAs are very robust, and because of this the cabinet drop will not be as mu ...

Yes, indeed.
I found it (or at least close)! It’s a Wilsonart laminate, and their part number is Y0026. They call it “Tutti Frutti”, a rather poor mis-spelling of C-L-O-W-N-B-A-R-F, if you ask ...

If you are breaking right at the tuner, check the tuner through-hole for burrs or a sharp edge where the string would be exiting. Multiple wraps is also a VERY good idea on the plains, especially the ...
