Ariel has become a staple in songwriting, singing and certainly slide guitar. His guitar slide is a stretched out version of our original small brass balltip. The balltip adds even more weight for long sustain and gives the ability to play on the tip. Served up 2 different ways in polished brass and aged brass.
The Polished Brass & Aged Brass Rock Slide have huge sustain. Why so much sustain? Because the heart of The Rock Slide is the solid brass rod that is CNC carved to fit your finger. This particular brass formula is very heavy which is the best for tone and sustain. The walls are thick and get thicker towards the end of the slide because of the internal taper design. We intentionally added a tone ring at the fingertip end which adds mass and helps secure your finger. Like a Hawaiian tone bar cuts through the mix with more weight and mass, so does The Rock Slide. NOT JUST A PIECE OF PIPE.
The Aged Brass Rock Slide is done with a 3 step recipe of destruction. They are all done by hand so no two look alike. There is no sanding, dinging, or scuffing involved so the surface is smooth, not scratchy. It’s a satin finish vs. the high gloss polished finish. Basically it sounds like a brass slide that has been played for a few years.
