Besides the Bigsby Palm Pedals which are hard to find, has anyone invented B benders for a dobro. I would like to find some benders for the D (1st) as well as the B (2nd). With my small fingers I'm unable to "pull" the first or second string while playing like some of the guys with Georgia hams for fingers. If anyone has any Bigsby Palm Pedal "arms" they are not using I'd like to purchase them. I can mount my Bigsby Tele base on my dobro. Smile
