Hi, I was wondering if that was the norm. When I push on my ab paddles my knee is on a angle with the knee levers. Is there a way to fix that ? Just Checking
Thanks,
Fred

Typically the left knee left is positioned between the 2nd and 3rd pedals and then the left knee right is between 5 1/2 and 6" away from that.

Not sure I totally understand your question. But, if you are sitting "properly", meaning your right leg goes straight through the levers parallel to the end plate on the guitar, and the center line of your body aligns somewhere around the 15th fret, This will naturally put your left leg at an angle going through the left knee levers. A picture of how you are sitting would help.

I bought the most perfect D10 and I had same problem and realized I should have either moved pedals over 1 place or switched to day set up and my problem would have been solved. Bob M

It's not hard to move all those things around and get em exactly where you want. Just gotta dig in. Take pictures and make drawings. If you understand one changer linkage you understand them all.

Knee levers don't need to line up with floor pedals. They need to align with your legs as you are sitting comfortably at your steel.

Let me ask, are you a new player? Jeff Newman taught in his classes that when you sit at the steel, the buttons on your shirt should line up with the 15th fret. You have to get that far to the right to see the high end frets. If this is where you are sitting, it would be impossible to have your left knee lined up straight with the ABC pedals. Your left knee is going to be at an angle to the right so the knee levers should be to the right of the ABC pedals also.

Usually you can just change the angle of the dangle to make them work. Very Happy
