Article & photos: PG met with Robert Randolph, undisputed jam king of the pedal steel before his recent Nashville gig at 3rd and Lindsley. Randolph proved there is no end to what one can do with a pedal steel. Robert Randolph spends most of his time on his Mullen G2 Custom 12-string single-neck pedal steel that’s tuned (low to high) B–E–G#–B–E–E–G#–B–D–E–G#–F# and strung with .072–.060–.054–.046–.032–.030–.024–.020–.028–.015–.012–.015 gauged strings. He also keep a second Mullen G2 around that’s tuned a half step lower. When he wants to stand up, Randolph plays this Jackson G7 Custom 7-string pedal steel. The Jackson is tuned (low to high) D–A–D–F#–A–D–D and strung with .060–.046–.032–.026p–.021p–.017–.015 gauged strings. All strings are custom made especially for Robert by the DR String Company.  Learn more about Robert's setup:
