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


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


 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.
