OVERVIEW

A slide made for hot blues.

The Preachin' Pipe is an authentic reproduction of maverick bluesman Eric Sardinas' own handmade slide. Sculpted by thousands of live shows, it has a fast, tapered shape from years of blazing across the strings of a sweat-soaked resonator guitar. The pure brass is worn to perfect thinness where you connect with the strings, giving it a distinctive resonance and sensitivity. Of course, you might also want to let its flared, weighted end do the talking. Either way, now you can experience the custom, fluid feel of the Pipe--and its intensely feverish tone--without spending a lifetime on roadhouse stages. Get your own Preachin' Pipe. It wasn't just made for the blues--it was made by the blues.

I purchased several slides for Dobro use. After extensive use, the top three all turned out to be longer Dunlop ones.

(1) The longer "Joe Perry" version is still my favorite - easiest to play and smoothest yet rich sound

(2) This Sardinas "preachin pipe" is the second most useful - smooth sound and a bit more edge than Joe Perry, lighter weight than other brass slides

(3) Dunlop Harris tapered brass slide - more complex edgy sound than Sardinas but not as smooth - if used on pinky, extra weight could be more fatiguing (I added a foam ring to slide over the bottom of my pinky for extra comfort and support while playing.)

Bought one of these in my search for the 'perfect' slide. I know that I want a concave one, but when I received the medium size version of this slide I couldn't even fit it past the first joint on my pinky finger.. this slide is ridiculously small, so much so that it is completely unusable for me. I will be sending it back.

    Comments about Dunlop Eric Sardinas Preachin' Pipe Brass Guitar Slide:

    This is a really good slide the dimensions are below. Ive been using a Dunlop chrome 220 for years and thought I would try it. I got the large and I have medium/small size hands..if you have really small hands you should get the medium. the tone of the brass is really nice and you can play it both ways. it is not just like the description it is heavier than i thought.
    here are the measurments from the dunlop site. I also called them to make sure it would fit right.

    Medium (19.5-25.5 x 17.5-21.5 x 56mm)284

    Large (19-23.5 x 22.9-26.5 x 56.5mm) 285

    Nice fit, high quality brass, perfect shape! If its good enough for Eric Sardinas, it's good enough for me. That guy knows a couple things about slide guitar.

    Best Brass Slide Money Can Buy

    By Mike B-mEOrB

    from Auburn, New York

    Comments about Dunlop Eric Sardinas Preachin' Pipe Brass Guitar Slide:

    I have owned several different slides already, and when I heard Eric Sardinas came out with his own signature slide, I had to buy it. Honestly I was always a glass and ceramic man, but this is the only metal slide that gives them a run for their money. I say buy this as welll as a ceramic slide just for a bit of variety in tones. You won't be disappointed.

                Comments about Dunlop Eric Sardinas Preachin' Pipe Brass Guitar Slide:

                The right slide is a personal thing that can only be found by trying it out. I own slides made from glass, ceramic, brass, and chrome steel. This is a very nice brass slide that is wider at one end. There is a very slight curve in it down the length. .79 inch ID at the wide end (.69 inch ID at narrow end) x .93 inch OD at wide end (.84 OD inch at narrow end) x 2.25 inch long. This slide fits my left hand perfectly. It is my favorite slide in my collection. It has the brass flavor, fits me well, and is easy to work with. Although I do like the brass, I would like to find this exact fit and shape in glass.

                      This is my first brass slide and I love it—it has great tone. I still like my Blues Bottles just because I have used them for many years. The heavy brass does take some getting used to, but worth it.
