OVERVIEW

A perfectly weighted, tone-sustaining, brass guitar slide with a 12-star interior grip.

Musicians have long been known to use actual tool sockets for guitar playing because the 12-star interior grip keeps the slide locked on your finger. Tool sockets have a drawback though-they are too heavy on one end. Clayton corrected this feature by equalizing the weight on each end of the guitar slide, which allows for consistent balance, weight, and tone. To enhance the slide even more, Clayton has made it in brass for enhanced quality and sustainability of tone. A cut-out relief has also been added for additional comfort during play. Truly a superb piece of craftsmanship.


Put that socket back in the tool shed and get the real deal for your guitar. Order today!

        Comments about Clayton Brass Socket Guitar Slide:

        I have been playing slide for decades and have recently been looking for the perfect slide for unamplified acoustic guitar slide playing. I have tried glass, chrome plated steel and brass. I like brass the best. I have tried other brands and they all had some kind of issue. This is an interesting concept, but I found the ribbing and the recessed cutout to be less than useful to me. The cutout was not polished enough and actually hurt my finger. I wound up using sticky window insulation foam to help make it fit and to stop the cutting feeling of the reccess. Otherwise, it is well made. I wish the wall was thicker, too. That would give better sustain. Still searching.

          I purchased to add to my collection of slides, as I play both acoustic & electric. guitars.

          It is excellent on both & I plan to use it on my redo guitars, and my slide Tele.
