“ Jim Dunlop 215M PYREX GLASS SLIDE „
Playing slide back in the day meant breaking the neck off your favourite beer bottle and playing the blues, we've come a long way since then. Nowadays we use precision made slides out of factories, but a slide is still a slide. And this pyrex design is no different although it may be heat resistant.
When buying a jim dunlop product your can be sure of one thing, and that thing is quality. This slide is no different from any other JD product. The first thing you notice about this slide is how solid it feels. It is the size and weight you would expect from a slide, totally see through and totally smooth even around the edges. When playing the slide feels to have no friction at all, be that a good or bad thing. The sound produce is warmer and less sharp than that of metal slides, I would suggest that this slide is less suited to old fashioned blues due to this. More suited to country, pedal steel type licks is my immediate impression. The slide should be fine on most peoples fingers but people with big fingers may have to move it to their pinkey.
You can pick these up at most music shops with a decent line of guitar accessories, they price normally between £4-8. This makes them middle of the road for price but they are great quality.
