Episode 40 - Bob Hoffnar
Bob Hoffnar plays the Pedal Steel Guitar in a wide variety of musical styles and contexts. We chatted about making the decision to be a musician, making it in New York, and working with other musicians while still pursuing your own projects. We go over his rig that includes some nice fx pedals, a work horse of a volume pedal, and a custom built amp all of which are expressing an amazing vintage instrument. He bought his first instrument from one of the greats and studied with Buddy Charleton too.
