        Comments about Dunlop Harris Brass Guitar Slide:

        The price is great. This slide is well made, but it is a bit on the heavy side, and because of the contour, it seems top heavy. It sustains very well. I like my old chrome plated slide, but it doesn't sustain that well for un-amplified acoustic guitar. This is my fourth brass slide and I am still looking for the perfect one!

              I have been looking for the perfect brass slide to use on unamplified acoustic guitar. I have tried many and this is the best so far. But, I am still looking. The things about this slide that I'm not that enthusiastic about are the fact that the unflared end is not as thick as the flared end and the fact that it scratches easily, but maybe that was intentional?? Still looking for the perfect brass slide, but this will certainly do until I find it! :>)

                  This is the only slide I'll use. It has great sustain! It's a bit heavier than other slides, but is still easy to use.

                  The sizing is critical

                    Comments about Dunlop Harris Brass Guitar Slide:

                    What makes this slide good is what makes it hard to work with - its weight. Good because the weight improves the sound, in my opinion. Difficult because you'll clank against the fingerboard until you get accustomed to it. I don't have a guitar dedicated to slide, so I'm not using extra heavy strings (.10 or .11 on top)
                    In terms of SIZING: It looks to me that the medium and large sizes are the same slide. The large size looks to have more of the interior reamed out to accomodate a larger finger size. As a result, the medium slide seems a bit heavier. I wear a slide on the third finger and like to get it on top of the second knuckle so it's not flopping around. I bought both medium and large slides and I'm preferring the medium. It fits snugly on top of the second knuckle. The large is a bit looser and more difficult for me to control. I don't know my ring size but I have fairly large hands.

                    Comments about Dunlop Harris Brass Guitar Slide:

                    Whether you prefer glass or brass, you won't be able to deny the advantages of this particular design. The taper allows for full contact and even pressure across the fret so you don't have to deal with wobbly strings on the high end. And being that it's brass, you get a loud bright sound. Just be wary with sizing as they do run narrow. I bought a large that fits both my ring and index fingers.

                        The subtle flare and the beefy weight distinguish this from other slides.
                        I use the medium on my pinky with a Martin OM-15. The brass is louder, which is a good thing on an acoustic -- it helps to have that added projection.
                        The combination of the material, the weight, and the shape, add up to a very expressive slide that you'll enjoy playing.

                        Comments about Dunlop Harris Brass Guitar Slide:

                        This is a slide. It has very few features aside from the flared end. It does it's job well. Several people have whined about the weight, but that is a personal problem. I have been using 11 guage strings on my PRS and 10.5s on my G&L, and have absolutely no problem with the weight. My only suggestion would be, "don't use wimpy strings." I plan on buying a couple more to have one with each of my guitars.

                        Great Slide

                        Comments about Dunlop Harris Brass Guitar Slide:

                        I bought this after i had it with delicate glass slide. This sounds nice and warm. The slight taper to it conforms to the neck great, although it may be to heavy for guitars with a lower action. My Les Paul has a lower action and this can sometimes come into contact with the frets. Overall, great addition you your sound.

                        Wow. After years of messing around with a glass slide, tossing it aside in frustration within minutes, I came upon this. Solved. Answered. And satisfied. I picked up the large at a local dealer who only that size it in stock. Alough its a hair too big for my spindly fingers, a world has been opened. I cannot say enough about how this changes things for me. The curves and weight allow for precision and ease of use. Plays nice with my LP and Epi Dot. I don't know about on a Fender, but that's a different story. I will be buying the medium from MF soon, and think about letting my bassit have the larger one to take home for kicks. Or not. I highly recommend this as a first slide. Just loving it. Thanks Dunlop!

                        Comments about Dunlop Harris Brass Guitar Slide:

                        I've had one of these for 5 or 6 years and it's easily my favorite slide (I've got many). I've got glass and ceramic slides but I always end up reaching for this brass Dunlop. It does flare out slightly on one end, and none of my other slides do that, but it really works well (whatever the reason). The metal on metal sound/tone that you get with this slide is far better (grittier/rougher) than the tones I get from glass or ceramic slides. I use this slide with my acoustic and resonator guitars most, but it works well with my electric too.
