NPSD (New Pedal Steel Day) !!!

Post by andy » Wed Dec 23, 2020 9:12 am

Here's hoping the steel fans around these parts see this!

I bought a new to me MSA D10 a couple months ago off of a friend of mine. It is really great! These old MSAs are known for being stable and very well built and engineered, and heavy!! Most steel forum people all say they have a lacklustre tone compared to the Emmons and Shobuds of the day but I have been very happy with it. It has an E9 and a C6 neck like my old Fender 1000. The biggest difference is the number of strings. The 1000 is a D8 and the MSA is a proper D10! Plus I now have all five pedals for C6 neck. I only had two C6 pedals on the 1000. I'll try to upload a little video if I can figure out how :fp:

It’s a little pouch for storing picks and bars and such.

Phantastic. :-* :? :-*
The cool thing about fretless is you can hit a note...and then renegotiate.
