    The benders on this make it sound so cool.

    Pretty cool.

    I saw that over the weekend on one of the steel forums. Really great idea.

    I've done a few steels using the Dusenberg Multibender bridge and they are nice little compact units. Dusenberg USA does sell them, but at almost $600 a pop, I don't think they really want to sell any. I've been getting mine from Rockinger in Germany for around $300 shipped.

    Tom,
    Your work is beautiful! But,,,, at $600 bucks for a Multi-Bender, I'd just add a bit and buy another used S-10 Shobud if I wanted a "Bender" steel. If I want to play steel with a bender, I sit down behind one of my pedal steels. Wish I weren't so broke,,,, I'd buy one of your lapsteels in a minute, but without the benders.
    JB, SGF.
