Hello all! I posted this over on Doug's site, and would like your thoughts. Are there any specific parameters for the design of a tube input preamp/power amp for use with a pedal steel guitar. I understand the frequency response needs to be wider than a guitars' (more bass response), and the input impedance needs to accommodate the guitar depending on the pickup used. I read on a steel guitar forum that the first preamp doesn't need a cathode bypass capacitor. Do any of you play pedal steel guitar, and if so what is your favorite amp? Thanks!
