This morning I checked out this interesting interview on DunlopTV. The interview was with Robert Randolph. I wasn’t familiar with him at all. He plays a 13 stringed pedal steel, and definitely can rock the thing. I was immediately sucked into his diverse playing style. He can go from pristine melodic country twang to gritty rock blues.
In this interview he goes into how he go to play the pedal steel as well as some of his gear, including his Fuchs amp and his ‘secret’ pedals. Here is the DunlopTV episode posted by jimdunlopusa:
Here is a shot of his pedal board, thought it would be interesting to see what he uses. I was able to ID all the pedal, except for one. It’s the baby blue pedal (possible compressor) with the spigot graphic. Looks like it says “WeLoP” on it? If anyone knows what that pedal is, please comment below and I’ll update the post. UPDATE – It’s a Jam Pedals Water Fall Chorus (Thanks John)
