Here’s another demo of the Pedal Steel Synthesizer – a new hybrid instrument design that combines elements of traditional synthesizers and pedal steel guitars.
It’s designed by Merkaba , which already sells a $35 guitar sustainer, the Sound Stone. The Pedal Steel Synthesizer incorporate the company’s Sound Stone sustainer technology into a pedal steel design. In addition, it adds analog delay, filter, and a string bending pedal that lets you play minor and major chords.
The video features the prototype of the Pedal Steel Synthesizer. Merkeba expects a production version would cost around $1,200 USD. They’re starting to share previews to determine if there would be a market for the Pedal Steel Synthesizer.
