Rockslide are producers of some of the worlds best slides. Known for their ergonomic designs and fantastic build quality their slides not only give you great sound but extra manoeuvrability while playing compared to other slides. This moulded glass slide features all of the same ergonomics as their brass slide but with a traditional bottleneck tone perfect for blues.
Glass is an interesting material to make a slide out of as you would expect it to be really bright and harsh but it actually gives off a really nice full and warm tone. Glass was commonly used back in the days of early blues in the form of bottlenecks. This captures the same kind of response and tone but with a few modern tweaks that make it nicer to use.
From the tapered interior to the knuckle and finger cuts on the back and side the Rockslide is so comfy and gives you so much more mobility compared to other slides. It may not sound like much but it gives you a lot more control over what strings you are sliding and what you are leaving unaffected.
Here's what Rockslide say about their Moulded Glass Slides.
Moulded Glass Rock Slides are individually hand moulded in the USA by master lampworkers. These have all the same features as our brass Rock Slides with the Knuckle Cut, Finger Rest and Tapered Interior. These fit almost exactly like their brass counterpart but are slightly longer. The main difference being that they are much lighter & faster so you can really cook with these on an electric guitar. Because of our unique tapered interior design they do have enough mass to light up your acoustic.
Small Rock Slides are the sports car of the slide world, very light weight and extremely fast. Ideal for the guitarist who needs to play chords but wants to throw in pinky slide chops. It also works well on the ring finger of many women. 17.5mm I.D. - 47.5mm long - 45g. USA Ring size 7-8.
Medium Rock Slides are a perfect weight for most styles, heavy enough for long sustain on acoustic guitars, but light enough to easily control for fast electric playing. 19.5mm I.D. - 57.5mm long - 70g. USA Ring size 9-11.
Large Rock Slides are one of the heaviest on the scene. This makes for killer sustain on the thickest of string gauges and a down-right dark sound. 21.5mm I.D. - 59mm long - 100g. USA Ring size 12-13.
