I use preamp out to a cheap mixer. A dummy plug in the power amp input cuts the signal to the speaker (Peavey 400 or Special 130). I get good tone through the headphones, and mix in tracks or radio fo ...

After struggling to get the sound I wanted with settings like these, I pulled the "pull-bright" switch and now it's great. Anyone else use pull-bright for pedal steel?

If you don't mind using 2 pedals, Zoom MS-70CDR has good reverbs and delays, and Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive has good clean boost and overdrive. Plus, the Zoom does some other things (chorus, tuner, EQ, ...

If you wanted to hold onto that fine rig for future use, and still practice with it, I'd try a couple of things. Talk to the amp builder about tube options to reduce power. Or just try a different sp ...

Thanks for the info Godfrey. I just have to trust the online retailer's claims about burn-in, matching and testing. I figure they've weeded out the ones that are bad from the factory.
