I bought this Dunlop tempered glass slide #218 to play Blues on the 3-string, fret-less, electric cigar box type guitars I build. The inside diameter of about .800" is just right for my 3rd finger and the 2" length perfect for the 1" overall string spacing of the instruments. The glass is thick at 0.165" and doesn't feel fragile. This glass slide is not as harsh as a steel slide with first contact with the strings. With a steel slide a "hammer on" is very percussive and can get shrill on higher frets, especially with a tube amp with the treble turned up.

I have been fabricating my own steel slides so they will fit just right and have the right weight but, I find I'm playing with the Dunlop #218 most of the time.

I think you would have to work to break one of these heavy slides and they are cheap enough to keep an extra on on hand in case someone sticks it in their pocket.

I received mine in the mail. It has units for length, wall(thickness), inside(diameter) and ring size(I have no way to measure this - go to a jewelry store?). All units are in mm. The description here on the web page only mentions ring size - nothing else. Inadequate and makes it impossible to select one that fits well.

Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

A slide can be as individual as the person using it. I find that the short wall worn on my middle finger is just right for my needs. Decent price but don't let it hit the floor. That's the only problem with the glass slides is they are breakable.

Great tone, cheap slide

Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

I don't play much slide guitar to tell the truth, but i have tried different slides over the years and for electric guitar, this slide is a great option. Cheap, but delivers a warm, melodic tone with good sustain on electric guitars. Keep it in a hard case, it's fairly easy to break it.

    Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

    This slide is the best if you are going to use glass. Wall is thick which makes for a nice tone. I would recommend this slide for electric playing only though. For acoustic use thick walled brass

    Nice Slide

    Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

    Good slide. I wear a size 10.5 ring and this fits snug. Any tighter and I couldn't use it. As long as you order for your size, it's great.

    My main slide!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

    The Dunlop thick wall (medium) size slide is the best sound for all around slide, in my opinion. I have used it steadily for many years as a working musician for electric and acoustic playing. I'm in the process of buying one for every case and gig bag so I never have to search!

    By MidniteSkylar

    Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

    I'm not very experienced with slides, just got one to try it out. I barely used the slide at all, and one day I decided tp try my hand at it again, well, as it turned the slide just broke. I had used it like 4 times, and not very vigorously at that.

    Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

    Can't really give any other ratings on this thing, because it only really does one thing. However, it does it well and I'm very happy with it. I bought the large one, I guess it has thick walls? I've got funny knuckles that are really wide so where it might fit on the finger, it won't fit over the knuckle.This one produces a great sound, lots and lots of sustain. A little big and unweildy, but it definately makes up for it in sound if you can handle the weight. I personally prefer the warmer glass sound over metal. I've tried out many slides, from brass to chrome but I find I prefer the smoother glass sound over the brighter metal slide tone (no good for that warm statesboro whine).I made myself a decent one out of my sister's revlon cover-up bottle (thick walls, leaving a bit of the neck still on allows it to grip my knuckles and stay on better) but mine has since been broken and I've been relying on the dunlop ever since.

    By pinkfloyd1967

    Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

    I have had mine for about 2 years,great tone. The review says it all. One thing though is it fell off my bookcase that's about 4 and a half feet tall and snapped into 2 pieces. Everything was pretty much great about it other than it is kind of fragile.

    Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

    It's as basic as you can get. Nothing special, no "Great" sounds, but it's not bad. It's very bulky and hard to do anything with, so unless you're doing pure slide clicks, I'd go with the jetslide

        Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

        When I got this slide and put it on my finger it just felt natural and not at all heavy. Then I started playing "Free Bird" with the slide and I saw what it could do. It delivers a nice, warm, melodic, harmonic sound perfect for the blues or whatever else you can play with a slide. The price can't be beat for a slide this good. If you are looking for a nice but cheap glass slide this is it.

        Great sounding and feeling slide

        By Anonymous

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Dunlop Glass Guitar Slide:

        I love this slide. I have a medium heavy short. I love the short size much more than the long. It only extends past my finger tip a 1/4", so it feels like more like a finger than a slide. It isn't very heavy either. The heavy wall gives me a great warm tone. I like this slide so much that I have one in each of my guitar cases.I only wished that it was just a tad larger in diameter, but I can live with it. That is why the 4 1/2 rating.
