Rockslide's Balltip Brass slide takes its innovative design changes that made it more comfortable and more flexible and mixes it with a dobro or lap steel style balltip slide. Still with the same tapered inside and knuckle cut this addsa nother dimension to the slide allowing you to play with more accuracy and detail.
Polished Brass Tone
Polished brass is an interesting material as it mixes the smoothness and response of chrome while still having the massive, thick tone of brass which is the typeical option of more aggressive slide styles.
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 jsut 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. 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 their Polished Brass Balltip Slide
The revolution continues with the Balltip Rock Slide. This slide features everything you've come to expect from a Rock Slide, the cutaway, tapered interior, excellent weight and comfort, but now in a lap/pedal steel inspired ball tip.
Balltip Rock Slides have two notable features when compared to an original Rock Slide. First off is the very obvious ball nose which makes this a combo slide for use on a variety of other instruments like Dobro or Lap Steel. Secondly, the slide has 2 playing surfaces so one can either take advantage of the knuckle cut, or use the long side of the slides for greater string coverage. Size/Specs follow standard RS design but are slightly heavier & longer due to the added ball-tip.
This may be the one slide your resonator will NEVER leave home without.
