Peavey is proud to announce the release of the Robert Randolph Signature PowerSlide®. Incorporating all of the features of the original Peavey PowerSlide, the Robert Randolph signature model includes an adjustable belly rest, allowing users to adjust the distance between the instrument and themselves, an added single-coil pickup, and upgraded hardware.
The Peavey PowerSlide is a revolutionary approach to playing slide guitar. Not a traditional lap steel, not a resonator, and not a conventional steel guitar, the ergonomically designed PowerSlide combines the best of all three in a unique instrument that can be played in multiple vertical and horizontal orientations, thanks to its four-point suspension and patented multipoint “Y” strap system. Designed to position the fingerboard to the left of the player’s body, the shape allows total access to the playing surface.
The Robert Randolph Signature PowerSlide is available in a metallic silver finish. Features include volume control, “sail” patterns to help easily identify octaves while playing, and a unique magnet-loaded pickup with exclusive variable-coil mode control. The PowerSlide ships with Robert Randolph signature DR .013-.056 nickel wound strings, “Y” strap, padded bag, and polished-finish steel slide.
Pedal steel guitarist Robert Randolph is best known as the founder of the funk/blues/rock/soul group Robert Randolph and the Family Band. Rolling Stone listed him as one of their “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.” As to why he went to the efforts of creating a signature model, Randolph commented: “ I’ve been wanting something with more versatility, mobility, and comfort. Something I could really get into while performing live. With four different pickup sounds and more sustain than any other lap steel ever made, the Peavey PowerSlide gives me everything I want!”
