I was surprised at how heavy this slide is. It is much heavier than the medium slide. I really wished there was an in between. The medium is a ring size 9, the large a 12.5. 9 was too small and 12.5 is to large for a guy with average sized hands. The tone is great, brighter than the glass but not as brittle as the chrome. On my dobro it was pretty smooth (tone wise). Except for a special effect I would probably never use it on an electric.

Nice sound, bad looks.

Comments about Dunlop Solid Brass Guitar Slide:

My friend just got this slide for his birthday the other day and he couldn't wait to use it. It sounded great. Every slide sounded perfect and clean. And it felt really good on your finger. One thing I didn't like about this slide was that it loses it shine really fast. After only 2 hours of using it, it lost all of it's shine and had a few scratches in it. But if you don't care about looks and want good sound, get this one.

    best acoustic slide....

    By blu3s

    from the south

    Comments about Dunlop Solid Brass Guitar Slide:

    i am an acoustic slide player with many many years of experience, and i just want to say that this is the perfect "pinky" slide that you could find. i always keep a "pinky" slide and a "ring finger" slide, depending if i want to fret and slide at the same time. this one fits on my pinky perfectly and is perfectly weighted to play some mean slide. i wouldn't recommend for electric play, it seems to be a bit too heavy.

    Discovered Leo Kottke..

    Comments about Dunlop Solid Brass Guitar Slide:

    So my glass slide broke a little over a year ago. Didn't feel any need to replace it until I found Leo Kottke's music via John Fahey. Anyways, I ordered a medium, got it in the mail today, and it fits perfectly on my pinkie finger. I tried to find a brass slide at local music stores, and none of them had any. takeaways: medium = perfect fit for pinkies. playing with a slide is tough and takes lots of practice.

    Comments about Dunlop Solid Brass Guitar Slide:

    Be sure to get the right size. Regular medium heavy wall is HUGE! I missed the part about ring size. My bad. I don't know how you get the heavy wall to stay on a pinky. It's like a socket wrench socket. Still, very heay duty.

            Comments about Dunlop Solid Brass Guitar Slide:

            I already had a Dunlop Harris slide which is curved. I really liked it for open tuning because it fit nicely to the neck allowing me to play all the strings at once, however I wanted a straight slide for standard tuning because I felt it would be better for targeting individual strings. I am very happy with it. I got the medium size and it is good quality and fits my pinky perfectly (I have large hands). After a couply days playing the shine wore off and I was able to get the dirty sound that you want with a brass slide. It could be a little heavier in my opinion, but this does allow for fast playing, so it's fine.

                If you are looking for a warmer sound you should get a glass slide, but if you want that classic bright sound this is a solid slide for the money

                THe ring size is closer to a 7.5 than a 9. Other than that, it's fantastic!

                Very pleased with this slide overall. It hits that SRV-Boot Hill sound perfectly!
                I use this for my Strat. Doesn't sound right on a Les Paul, I use a glass slide for that guitar.
                Nice shiny finish. A little on the heavy side, but it sounds sweet!
                Great price for a great product.

                    Comments about Dunlop Solid Brass Guitar Slide:

                    Was wanting a metal slide for my carry out guitar to go with my glass one. I have a chrome one but don't carry it out because it is more than a little tight on my finger, and I don't really have large hands. Was skeptical of ordering one online because I wouldn't know if it would be any bigger. Glad I went ahead; this slide rocks and gives me just enough extra room.

                      Good quality. the brass is nice and solid. If you have big fingers and want to use this on your ring finger it isn't going to fit, I use it on my pinky and its a tight fit, but works, definitely isn't going to fall off. I ended up modifying mine with a saws all, so I can tell you they are solid brass for sure.

                        This is heavy weight slide...plenty of mass for functionality. It is small and will work for people with small hands...it is a tight fit for me and I have small hands...ring size 9 1/2 and I use on the pinky (smaller than ring finger). I would not recommend this to players with average size hands...it would be too small to fit their fingers.

                          Buying slides online is a risk, unless you already know what you are getting. That said, its nicely made, could use more chamfer on the inside. A nice size for pinky, a bit tight for my ring finger. I do prefer glass, thats no reflection on the quality.

                              Very smooth slide tone. Large enough to cover many strings at once. Attractive finish.
