I have two mid-eighties ZumSteels that are in amazing shape and sound. My only complaint is the pedal noise of one of the guitars, especially when recording. Is it just a matter of adjusting the pedal on the shaft? I have never done this type of adjustment. Hoping that someone could give some advice.

Thank you in advance for considering this,

ZumSteel U-12; William's U-12; Evans Amp (15" speaker); Goodrich volume.

If it’s the pedals themselves rattling you might take them apart & apply oil or light grease to the shafts. If it’s the pull rods rattling underneath the guitar, you might make you some of the foam rubber dampers that come on the guitars originally.
