      JetSlide

      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.

      • Unique design allows alternating between slide and fingering techniques

        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.

              Comments about JetSlide Guitar Slide:

              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.

                Comments about JetSlide Guitar Slide:

                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.

                          Oh yeah, this thing is cool! Just takes a little practice and adjustment of the finger loop to get it working correctly. I use mine on my middle finger, using my ring finger to grab the tab and pull the brass bar under my finger for slide work,and then it the pops out of the way instantly as soon as I let go for 4 finger playing. Feels a little odd at first, but you get used to it.

                            I recently gave my old slide to my grandson. I needed another so I reseached what slides were available. This one seems to be the next logical progression of slides. It allows me to keep it on my finger for slide and use all of my fingers also. Its the best of both worlds! It can be mastered in no time. Contact the manufacturer and purchase a glass cylinder that attaches to it.

                            This is a great slide especially for it's unique features. Since the slide fits on the finger of your cloice (I prefer middle finger with ring finger and pinky to dampen) and quckly turns out of the way for fingering the neckboard. Plus it is brass which makes the strings ring out with a tone unlike nickel steel or glass slides can. I have only one other slide that does this any better and it is made from 1/8" brass tubing, It weighs a tone but OMG what tonality! This slide produces just about as good a sound as the big brass slide. If you play slide guitar irregularly through a tune or even throughout a set this one is perfect for it's ability to get out of the way when you need it to without needing to stop and take it off. I play Delta style blues on a resonator guitar and it has immediately become my favorite out of a half dozen varieties of slides. Got for the Best! Go for the Jetslide!!!

                            I just got the "Jet Slide" bar slide and right away learned how to use it. Just slide it over your ring finger made minor adjustment but was ready to jam. Now add slide to songs I never could before.
                            Just got it but it looks as long as its not in a blender its solid
                            Could always save money
