If you fancy playing the steel, here are some of the people who could help you make it happen. At the moment, these probably aren’t things you couldn’t find yourself with a couple of clicks. That, hopefully, will change. 

Hogan Music

http://www.steelguitars.co.uk

Steel legend Gerry Hogan runs this site, and his music shop in Newbury. It’s one of the few places you can pretty much guarantee getting a lap steel in good nick.

Stones Music

http://www.stones-music.co.uk

 41 Peter Street, Hadfield, Glossop, Derbyshire, SK13 1HD

This is the only place where you stand a chance of getting a Ronnie Bennett lap steel, unless you like the feel of a Welsh Juggernaut behind you. Ask for Mike.
