WBS germany manufactures for over 10 years Steel guitars, Pedal Steel guitars.
the service offered by WOLFGANG BEDNARZ is a rare quality. anxious to tailor the instrument of your choice. the potential security service is appreciated.
this manufacturer is one of the few in EUROPE and best known rightly so.
I has two STEELS a D10 (double 10 string E9 + C6) and S10 (single 10-string E9) and no problems so far.
sleeves are purely indicative, the strings being 3 cm on average. The handle is a simple tracking. all played with tabs right hand and left hand bar steel
see above for the handle or handles if 2 x 10 open string given in E9 and / or C6.
microphones are low impedance or high depending on the model and gives a lot of very different sounds.
I use an amp EVANS RE200 well suited to this type of instrument.
found most frequently PEAVEY 400 Nashville in international conventions.
all types of music are available for this instrument ... country, jazz, blues, rock, pop, etc. ....
My favorite sounds are the very warm sound, round blues drive good bite.
too many effects can harm the instrument, so the action is required.
I had my first approaches a Steel Fender 400 that failed the agreement unfortunately .. Fender these were assembled from parts of SHOBUD U.S. and the company did not continue in this direction.
Pedal Steel Guitar may seem expensive indeed. it is harmonically between the guitar and the keyboard. much richer than a guitar but much less a keyboard (simply because of the possible ten fingers).
its manufacture (craft) requires long hours and special care which is reflected in the average price .. beginners models are 900-1000 eur. and pros to 2500-5000.
