    Pull String Party

    As to why I changed from the "lever style" to the "bellcrank style", it was to gain more adjustments to suit the individual player. With the bellcrank you get adjustable throw, adjustable strap tension, and it is actually smoother than the lever style. I came up with the current design after...

    Fred Walecki selling Bernie Leadon's (Eagles) B-Bender

    Ormond, you can check out the history of the Pull String at There is also a lot on the net in regards to Gene Parsons who actually invented it with Clarence. Plus the regulars on this forum are quite in the know.

    Fred Walecki selling Bernie Leadon's (Eagles) B-Bender

    I don't think this is the original that I did for Bernie which he used on some of the first Eagle's hits. It looks to me to be one of Gene's. Let's see what Rick is able to find out. I just spoke with Fred last week, too bad I didn't know about this I could have asked him! Timing is everything!

    Potentially dumb question- will binding be an issue when routing for a bender?

    There is always the possibility that the binding is not properly glued to the body and therefore, will come lose or tear out.

    When Gene Parsons closes shop...

    I doubt if Gene will ever close shop until it is physically impossible for him to see or move. As to what "company" should take it over when it does happen....well a "company" is in business for profit, not for the love of building something. That is rampent in this day and age of greed! When...
