Pedal steel guitars helped define the sound of country music with a history that goes back to the 1940s. Evolving out of the popular Hawaiian and lap steel guitar styles of the 1920s and '30s, innovators like Paul Bigsby, Buddy Emmons and Zane Beck began adding new features to steel guitars like pedals and knee levers which expanded the musical range of these instruments. Played with a sliding bar on an open-tuned set of strings, the various features of a pedal steel guitar allows the player to modulate and alter different notes which creates a distinctive twang. This sound proved central to the popular country style of the '50s and '60s, and remains a central feature of country stages and studios in Nashville and beyond. Whether you're looking for a starter pedal steel with one neck, or a vintage classic with two, you can find your next pedal steel here.
