I am having trouble with a fellow who plays a Showbud pedal steel guitar. He is not happy with the sound he is getting from the guitar ( a high 2.5 - 4K raspey sound ). I have tried to remove some of the frequencies with the EQ and removing the high end off the amp,,, any sugestions, other than telling him to buy a new steel?? Any help would be appreciated. I'm using a Sure 57 ( offset ) just off the speaker, and an AKG 3000 about 2 feet off the front of the amp.
