MULLEN G2 SD10

This is a 2010 model and one of the best pedal steel guitars in today's market. Sealed ball bearing bushing on every cross shaft, new changer with fine polished metal and many innovations. It's a real pleasure to play this wonderful instrument developed by Del Mullen over five years of
research. Mine is mounted with 4 pedals and 5 knees and I use the same exact copedent on my Pedalmaster SD10.
Cette guitare est un modèle de 2010 et actuellement une des meilleures steel guitar du marché. Elle est montée avec des roulements à billes sur la totalité des cross shafts (barres transversales) et possède un changer ultra précis. 5 ans de recherches ont été nécessaires à Del Mullen
pour élaborer ce modèle. La mienne possède 4 pédales et 5 genouillères.

PEDALMASTER SD10

I bought this custom made model (made in California by Roy Thomas) in 2014. I adjusted the set up to my playing and added helper springs on all the raise fingers (raise helper). The pickup is a Tone Aligner humbucker.
J'ai acheté cette guitare en 2014, c'est un modèle custom fabriqué en Californie par Roy Thomas. J'ai bien entendu adapté le setup à mon jeu et ajouté un système d'aide aux cordes montantes grâce à des ressorts placés sous la guitare au niveau du
changer (Raise helper). Le micro est un Tone Aligner humbucker.

My amps:

PEAVEY Nashville 400

The standard pedal steel guitar amp. Mine has been altered with a Lemay mod put straight on the board to improve tonal balance and definition. I installed a Eminence neodynium speaker to save weight as well.
Le standard en matière d'amplification pour pedal steel guitar. Le mien à été modifié au niveau de l'amplification avec un mod Lemay ajouté directement sur le board pour plus de basse et de définition. J'ai également monté un haut parleur Eminence néodynium pour gagner du poids

PEDAL BOARD

MY GEAR (September 2018):

 

Telonics Volume

Optical volume pedal which allows several presets and profiles. Perfect tone and a wide selection of tapers.
Pédale de volume à lentille optique. Permets d'avoir plusieurs presets et profils de pédale. Conserve un tone impeccable et la progressivité peut être modifiée.

Bluesky Reverbe

Fantastic natural sounding digital reverb pedal with very effective dry/wet settings. I mostly use room and plate settings with long reverberation times.
Une reverbe numérique fantastique, très naturelle avec l'avantage d'avoir un Dry/Wet très efficace. Je l'utilise essentiellement en Room et Plate avec des temps assez longs.

Peterson Stroboplus HD

Pedal steel guitar is a tempered instrument, Stroboflip enables you to recall this temper so as to tune the instrument more quickly.
Une pedal steel est un instrument dit "tempéré" le stroboflip permet de mettre en mémoire cette tempérance  pour pouvoir accorder plus rapidement son instrument.

OLDER GEAR

Most of my effect pedals were designed in collaboration with the manufacturers, I changed pedals often but I stuck to the same basis. I somehow favor analog over digital, except for the digital reverb pedal.
La plupart de mes pédales ont été développées en collaboration avec les personnes qui les ont fabriquées, j'en ai changé souvent mais la base a toujours été la même. Je privilégie l'analogique hormis la pédale de réverbe qui est numérique.

Brad Sarno Tonic Tube Preamp™

a compact, portable, all-tube preamplifier designed primarily for the many unique needs of the steel guitarist, but it will be equally at home with bass guitar, electric guitar, or just about any amplified musical instrument. With the Tonic, you will achieve the ultimate in tone quality and
flexibility mixed with portablity and affordability. Unlike many "guitar" preamps, the Tonic is a clean machine, and is not intended to create overdriven tones, but instead offers extreme high fidelity vacuum tube tone. The Tonic Tube Preamp also has a NEW feature of an optional internal
digital reverb module. This makes the Tonic a complete, portable, stand-alone preamp solution without the need for a rack and external effects unit. The Tonic Tube Preamp™ is entirely hand built in St. Louis, MO - USA utilizing an efficient construction method along with high quality,
oxygen free copper, thick-trace printed circuit board technology. This efficient assembly process allows you to have the same pristine sonic quality of the Revelation preamp, but in a more compact package.

Cowl Delay

I love this analog delay pedal based upon the Blue delay. I use very short settings (about 200ms) most of the time. It's adjacent to the volume pedal on my pedalboard.
J'adore ce delay analogique, la base de départ étant une blue delay. Mes réglages sont très courts environ 200ms mais peuvent varier selon ce que je veux obtenir. Mon pédal board est conçu pour que je puisse y avoir accès directement à côté de ma pédale de volume.

Burzum Rat

This distortion is based upon the RAT but was widely altered, high impedance humbuckers (18,4 ohms) requiring a non-standard distortion pedal.
Cette distorsion est une base de RAT à laquelle des modifications ont été apportées. Le haut niveau d'impédance des micros Humbucker d'une pedal steel (18,4 ohms) ne permettant pas d'obtenir des résultats convaincants sur une pedale standard.

Power Supply

Stable and protected power supply, often one of the most overlooked item in the audio chain.
Ultra stable et protégée, souvent beaucoup plus important que ce que l'on peut imaginer dans la chaine du son.
