OVERVIEW

An innovative design for the best of both worlds.

The JetSlide allows you to easily switch between playing slide licks and playing chords and solos without missing a beat. Worn on the ring finger, the slide bar rests between the ring and little fingers. This stabilizes the slide while it is being used and helps it fall out of the way when the finger tab is released. Easy to control, most guitarists will master it within minutes!

Choose the ring size closest to yours. Each size can be opened up to the next larger size. If you wear a half size, choose the next size up.

FEATURES
  • Unique design allows alternating between slide and fingering techniques
  • Easy to learn and master

Break with tradition, and free up your fingers. Order a JetSlide today with a few clicks!

    I'm not a slide player, but I was able to start using this right away. I got the larger ring size which was still a little tight but it is easily adjustable. I probably won't use it professionaly because I don't play much in the styles that use a slide, but it sure is fun to play around with.

    The quality of the product appears to be high, which is apropriate because the price is among those most expensive slides on the market. Mine did not fit well, so I am returning it. Musician's friend only carries sizes 8-10-12 and I think I probably need an 11, which the manuafacturer does sell.I think it is an interesting "novelty" slide and might have a use if you really needed your pinky to play notes and slide notes. If you are a serious slide player, you might find a place for this in your toolbox, but I think for most a "regular" slide is probably a better tool for most slide play. I don't care for the fact that it fits between ring and pinky finger, sort of under the ring finger with the pinky up on a tab when playing. I'd prefer that the tab was on the flip side so the bar felt more like it was under my pinky than under my ring finger, and the tab tab under my ring finger. Maybe that is because I am used to a slide on my pinky finger.On the pro side, I think I can see how this would enable more use of the pinky finger to play notes. I found the slide kind of flopped around when playing notes that way, but mine didn't fit snugly enough either. For access to high frets, with a normal round slide you can sort of roll your hand over on edge, with this slide you can't do that - I think high fret access would be a little more awkward with this product.The product had some weight to it, but still kind of felt too light on the strings - I felt like I would have to push down instead of letting the slide do the work. I was playing on a resonator with heavy strings. On an electric, this might actually be a great benefit to have that lighter touch. So again - might be the right tool for some jobs.Overall rating of 3 - an interesting product but not a keeper for me.

    Tricky to use

      Comments about JetSlide Guitar Slide:

      It seemed like THE solution; alas, the device isn't problem-free: rotating it into position with one's pinky is difficult enough but getting it BACK out of the way requires that second hand... If a "scalloped" bottleneck (one cut out to allow bending of the finger) can still be found, I'd advise to get it instead.

        Comments about JetSlide Guitar Slide:

        Let me start out by saying it took me a long time to figure out which one I wanted to order.

        The size should be measured at your local jewelry store. I went out to the mall to get my finger measured. I would not trust any of those online guide for when I measured myself I got a different measurement than what I actually am.

        For sound what's been said to me is that stainless steel is better for a louder stronger sound and they say brass is more like glass. (not to be confused you can actually buy a glass attachment)

        What's difficult about reading reviews on this product is that I didn't know what to order for a steel resonator. From my understanding brass sounds better all around on acoustics and resonators.

        My 4 stars comes from nicks in the brass. As soon as I opened it I noticed a fine quality and it's very solid. I got it working in under a minute. And a very fast with it. But I have to say I'm disappointed because it does look like there are lots of nicks and scratches in the brass before I ever put it to strings.

        I'm not sure if these scratches will affect the sound but overall I would recommend this and buy another.

        Comments about JetSlide Guitar Slide:

        I first bought this item purely for the innovative concept it offered. If I'm not mistaken however, I thought the manufacturer offered the JetSlide in a left handed, (for the right hand) version upon its debut, which if true disappoints me now to not find it so. No matter though, I bought the style for right handed players by mistake, or not (shrug) and was still amazed at the design... simple and functional. After adapting myself to play it with my right fretting hand, being I'm a lefty, i soon realized I could reverse engineer the thing for a left handed player and did so. Wow, I became aware just how awesome this idea really is. I can play any style of slide and now do the things I've always wanted to but couldn't with traditional slide designs. I can strum chords, scale solos or anything else, all the while sliding in between when and how I want. One may not think so at a glance but to me it really does have a very satisfying slide tone. Nice and clean and rich. I can even play those two guitar cover tune parts where one is straight strumming chords and the other solos with slide at certain points. Thanks to the inventor of this one. I'm surprised more players aren't using it. My only grief is with the unavailability for left handed players. With a little luck maybe that will change. P.S. Please excuse my comments on the lefty version if I am mistaken. I don't see it offered off hand on the page.

                An oustanding device to add a slide flavor any time I want without encombering my ability to use all my fingers for fretting. Well made with fit and finsh like jewlry. Although I play delta blues on a resonator (Dobro) guitar, I've not played slide before because it employed a finger I used to fret with. The JetSlide stays out of the way when not in use, then works any time I want, and easily. Although I'm an old dog attempting to learn a new trick, I was easily adding just slide licks to my existing songs within an hour. I suggest you get your ring size (free) from any jewler before you order, and it should fit perfectly.

                  I'm a middle finger slide player. The Jetslide requires my wrist to be in a slightly awkward position to make full contact with the strings. Also, it's a bit lacking in mass (I have the steel version). But it works ok overall, and there don't seem to be any better alternatives out there for live quick-change slide work.

                      If I can use a slide all the way through a song I'll use my glass bottle but for switching between slide and fingering this is the absolute best alternative I've found! I've tried others such as the shy slide, nothing bad about the shy slide but this one blows it away. Took me two minutes to get used to it.

                      This is a great idea works well for the slide player that needs to chord with all fingers in "standard tuning". Not the same as your favorite glass or metal slide but you can get a good sound out of it both on electrics and acoustic guitars. Every slide player should have one of these.
