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.

        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.

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

          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.)

            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

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

            This is a really great slide. I own a handful, and none of them really gave me the sound that I was looking for. I bought this slide as an experiment, and boy am I glad I bought it. It makes my guitar sound great, and it fits perfect on my finger. If you like slide guitar, and want a comfortable slide, then buy this. You will not regret it.

            Bought one of these at a local music store-went back the next day to buy another one-they were sold out. Little doubt why, there are alot of slides on the market but I can do anything I try with this slide. Its awesome, works on all my guitars no matter what strings I'm using. Just a great piece of work...db

            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.

            guitar slide

            By 

            from chicago

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

            it's kinda weird to review a slide since they are such a personal choice. but this slide is the best i've ever owned, and i've a cigar box full of 'em. what i like about it is how well it fits my finger. in the picture on the package it shows eric s. with it on his pinky with the flared end out. i wear it on my ring finger with the flared end in and it feels just like an extension of my finger. anyway the quality is excellent with all smooth edges and a mirror finish ( which will eventually get scratched up ) it gives a real nice "slidy" sound on my dobro, brighter than your average brass slide but not as bright as chromed steel. it's pretty pricy at ** bucks compared to your average *-* bucks for a slide, but i liked it so much i bought a spare in case i lost it and they stopped making them. i would recommend any of the dunlop slides, they have a real nice selection of them and the sizes shown on their website are accurate which is cool since fit is real important and it's hard to find the right size.

            Best Brass Slide Money Can Buy

            By 

            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.
