Do you love the look of old tired gear? Do you like the tweed on your amp slightly dirty but the sound to be pristine? Then the Rockslide Aged Brass Slide may just be the next bit of gear you need. The hand aged looks feature dirty brass, black and rust elements for that look fantastic! Do not worry about the tone however as these have been finished and polished in a way that it does not effect the tone, it still sounds like a fresh new slide but with semi destroyed looks.
History Of Rockslide
These guys have been making slides in the USA using top of the range CNC machinery since 1999! They were the original inventors of the internally tapered slide which has been very popular with all kinds of blues, rock and country artists.
It is not just the internal taper that makes this slide great. They have also cut away a portion near the back of the slide for your knuckle to allow for better movement as well as a small carveout on the sides to allow better location of your other fingers. All of these come together to make a slide that is not only comfier to use but also a lot more controllable.
Here's what Rockslide say about the Aged Brass Swamp Slide
If you are into tweed and worn out looking gear these are for you. Tonally they sound like a standard brass Rock Slide, but they resemble something from the bottom of the Bayou. We individually hand age these using a multi-step recipe of destruction. They have a perfectly smooth finish for playability.
DISCLAIMER: Every single slide is aged by hand. Appearance WILL vary from slide to slide. Some look like the picture, some come out with more black, some come out with more gold or rust colors.
