I have this, made by Zum. It's a separate pickup with electronics that clips onto the leg of the steel. I'd sell it for $125.

I've seen people do that. It avoids the sympathetic ring of unison strings. I have B to C on a separate lever on my D6th, and I often use it with my A pedal. But I don't see anywhere to put it on this ...

Ditto that. It'd get a lot of youngsters to the level of their incompetence and encourage as many to go on to S10 or 12.
And it will look the same to the women.

Can anyone argue that steel guitar wouldn't be in a lot more musicians' arsenals if S-6s or S-8s were popularized and mass produced? And let's not BS ourselves that many musicians wouldn't be just fin ...

There is no equivalent of a B6th mode, Pete. You don't have to lower your root strings to switch from "9th mode" to "6th mode".

It's D9th (like E9th with a string added betwee ...

Laughing Funny, I was going to suggest that! It also gives you the freedom to raise or lower the 9th string with your left knees, for fast runs.

Josh, I have pedal that lowers my 5th string a half step. Releasing it quickly gives a similar effect. If it lowered a full step, it would sound just like what I'm hearing in that track. I haven't tr ...

Since posting this originally I have found it best to lower string 10 C-B and string 11 A-Ab on P4 rather than have to use it with RKR. It also gives me back the normal E9th, Bs to Bb change.

Musescore doesn't do pedal steel tab. There are ways to hack it, though. See https://musescore.org/en/node/106041.

Many modern guitars do lower the middle G# to G. It's done with split tuning on the G# to F# lever. Combining the lever with a raise pedal makes it a G# to G change. Modern guitars have a method to ...

I think it's worth emphasizing that P4 is designed to work with RKR engaged. The split is not an afterthought. RKR turns the low strings into standard C6th intervals, and P4 is the very standard C6th ...
