"This is the high pitched set used to get that "Hank Williams" sound by Don Helms. It's a precursor to the E9th pedal steel. Notice that the 3rd and 4th string are the same gauge, resulting in a matching timbre for notes that are very close in pitch. Those 2 strings became one on the E9th pedal steel." -b0b-
