O.k. so this new band i'm playing in has me getting into the lap steel. Ironically, it's less alt-country than the previous band, but that's neither here nor there. Anyway, the lap steel i have is usable but really a learner model and eventually i'll have to upgrade. I've been running it through my regular guitar setup which has been working all right, but the lap is REALLY bright compared to the guitar (which is a tele- told you it was bright) so it takes a bit more tweaking than i'd like to deal with live. I'm thinking about a dedicated lap OD eq'ed to compensate for the brightness issue, but as always, real estate on the board is an issue. So those of you who play lap steel, how do you work it into your rig? Run it the same as guitar(s) or differently? Adjust on the fly? Or do you have a seperate rig? Lay it on me, folks.
