How to turn a Pedal Steel into a Hammond Organ 

Today I’ve been working on a little mod for my Strymon Lex. An amazing guitar pedal and perfect for the Pedal Steel Guitar! I wanted to make a switch to change the speed of the rotary effect and after a few tries and burnt fingers, got it right!

A big thanks to Pedal Steel master Jon Graboff for helping me out with this one. I noticed he had made one in an interview back in 2011. He kindly gave me a lot of advice on this project.

Here’s a raw example of what it does. Feel free to comment or message me about it.

Live Nation, Lauren Housley

Last week i had the chance to play with Lauren Housley at the Live Nation office in London. We set up the same as the radio station (see previous BBC Radio post) ¬†and played three tracks for the office workers. More exciting news from this in the future!! but, for now heres a little photo of the session… Also nice to take a small amp out for once, my cream Fender Pro Junior and Strymon Flint for a splash of Reverb.
