GHS Strings is delighted to introduce their newly updated Pedal Steel string sets that include revised gauging as well as updated packaging.

Based on feedback from pedal steel builders and players, GHS noticed that the tuning used on these instruments has slightly changed in recent years. As a result, the design team revisited their pedal steel string sets, updating them to reflect this updated tuning. Now the E9 Tuning sets include a 012 string (previously 013) and the C6 Tuning sets feature a 015 string (previously 012).

The revised string sets are supplied in GHS’ Nitro-Pack airtight packaging, which carries the “Anti-Corrosion Guarantee.” If you ever open a pack of strings and find one oxidized or corroded, GHS will replace them free of charge.

The GHS Pedal Steel string sets retain all the same great tone and longevity across the range, now combined with more modern tuning. Whether you prefer the bright sound of stainless, the warm attack of nickel-plate, the modern edge of nickel-iron or the smooth tone of pure nickel. GHS pedal steel sets are ready for your repeated pitch bending and playing.

  1. This is good news for pedal steel guitarists. The high F# .013 works fine with the old “G” knee lever, but since the trend since the 90’s has been to raise the string to G# on that lever (along with a D# to E change). The .013 was prone to break, so a lot of players started using .012.

    On the C6th neck, the change of the first string from .012 (G) to .015 (D) was long overdue. Buddy Emmons introduced it in the 70’s. Today, players using it outnumber the old school 2 to 1.
