As I often experiment with anything "steel", I sat down the other day in front of a digital keyboard and my steel to see which of the sweetners matched the keyboard best.

Playing single notes plus chords on the keyboard, I would play open single notes and open chords with no pedals and with A & B pedal, 0 fret. I was looking for what matched the best, according to my ear when using each sweetner.

This past weekend I did a gig here in town with me on steel and Danny Muhammad on bass (fantastic steel player along with about 5 other instruments and steel player for Ray Price for about 14 years). On breaks we discussed tuning different ways just as has been spoken on the Forum before, Just Intonation vs. Equal Temperament. The discussion sparked me to perform the experiment spoke of above using my Stomp tuner.

All sweetners did a good job, but I chose the EM9 & EP9 as my choice that sound the best with the keyboard, with the least waver sounds with the keyboard.

It seems the EM9 used the 440 string tunings with the exception of the 3rds which were tuned flat to 438.5 (per Buddy Emmons).

Anyhow, this is my findings and opinions.
