I know i can be the most distracted person in the world, but for years ive wanted a pedal steel, from the early 90s when i had an alternative country band.
Its always been a little out of reach based on them being hard to find and stupidly expensive.
Now there's a decent one wothin 1.5hrs drive from me that i could afford (there are probably more responsible uses for my money but...)

The question is do i have the discipline to learn the complex instrument and will i have the outlet for playing it?

We obviously all have different situations/background etc - but whenever I do something a little crazy like buying a new instrument, it always gives me ton of new ideas, inspiration and possibilities. So I am seriously wondering why I don't do it more often.

So if you ask me - I say GO FOR IT, pedal steel seems like loads of fun - though I have absolutely no idea how to play one 😅

If it wasn't 2K I would be less cautious, and that's a good price for this model. Most PSG are in the 3-5K range.

What about starting with a 'lap' steel, either 6 or 8 string?
It'll get you used to the tunings - C6 or E9 and using the bar. They are ubiquitous and not expensive.
If you take well to learning the lap, then go all the way with a pedal steel.

I did think about that, Ken, but with one on my doorstep (relatively speaking) it's an opportunity I don't think I want to miss. Unlike in the US it's not like you find them available over here in Ireland often.
