glass, hand formed and crafted in the USA, each Slipperyslide is
a unique work of functional art. No two exactly alike in color or
They feature the ability to make any steel guitar sound amazingly
like a sitar, using the ground edge - "The Sitarsound Experience".
Naturally, they can also produce a sweet, traditional sound, simply
by rotating the bar. Wow!
Standard size is approximately 3 1/4" long by 15/16" in
diameter. These slides fit the hand beautifully, and will be the
pride and joy of your bar collection.

Yes I did receive the slides, they are
a lot of fun. I used one of them this week on a recording I'm producing,
it's a kind of African blues tune and we needed a evil spooky kind of sound.
I'd tried playing dobra on it using my usual steel bar but it sounded too
full and rounded if you know what I mean, so applied the sitarsound edge and
got just exactly what I wanted. ...the glass definitely gives a warmer round sound ( when you use the round bit! ) than a steel slide, it's the one thing I miss from my bottleneck days was the comparative warmth of the glass slide.
I got the tone bar last night. It blew even my highest expectations out of
the water. It sounded great, looks cool as hell, and handled beautifully.
I have been looking for a solid glass tone bar for years and nobody - I mean
nobody - makes one.
Best of luck with your business,
