The PF-Steel Dream
Benado Effects - (Paul Franklin signature)



  • Steel Dreams do come true.

    The development of the PF Steel Dream was implemented in conjunction with Paul Franklin. Paul was first introduced to my start-up products some time ago. I asked him if I created a unit dedicated for Pedal Steel players, what effects would they want? After going through different options, he narrowed it down to: a medium gain Overdrive, Delay, and Reverb. Hence, the PF Steel Dream was created.
