Ivan McLernon plays a Mullen pedal steel guitar. Built in the United States, it has 12 string universal tuning, 7 pedals and 5 knee levers. This versatile instrument provides the band with many additional options for sound and texture during live concerts and recordings.
Sam Armstrong sometimes uses a Cajon (beatbox) for the band's acoustic sets. This was handmade by Stephen Henderson at Ruach Cajons in Kilkeel. For more information on this instrument call 07889 571336.
Ivan also regularly plays a Dobro guitar on stage. This guitar is played on its side and uses a steel bar which slides along the strings similar to that of a steel guitar. The sound is very distinctive and takes you immediately to the deep South of the United States.
