About This Listing

Patented SlideWinder™ ring – ARTIST model (custom series) 

US Patent#10,611,410 (all rights reserved).

Artist endorsements welcome


These rings are individually created in Nepal (by professional jewelers), assembled in the USA, and hand-painted by inventor, Alex Calder.


SlideWinder is a “magnetic floating fret” -- the world's most advanced analog technology for playing guitar.


If you do NOT play slide now…you will LOVE this! This is the anti-slide. It’s easy.


1)     Use all your fingers

2)     Keep your action low

3)     Play effortlessly. Seriously. It plays for you. Just let it play itself. It will.

4)     Create entirely new sounds…new to music.

5)     No limits. It plays anything you can imagine. Seriously. Just put it where you want sound to come from, and it does the rest. It plays for you.


Each one is a unique, functional, work-of-art, that you can use to play guitar, unlike anything else you ever tried. 

These ARTIST MODEL rings feature advanced designs: a “ski-tip” wrap-around design, boosted magnetism, and “perfect-fitting” flexible and adjustable ring wings to fit ANY FINGER…perfectly. 

These are the most beautiful, best-fitting, highest-performance rings we have ever offered for sale. 

LIMITED QUANTITIES. When these sell out, they are gone.

Two-handed SlideWinder techniques on electric guitar:



SlideWinder ring techniques on bass guitar:


Instruments: works on guitar (electric or acoustic) plugged or unplugged, bass (it turns every bass into a fretless, instantly), banjo, ukulele, mandolin, etc.


Details: No batteries, wires, cords, software. No electricity, required, at all.


The SlideWinder uses powerful built-in magnetism. (Note: these magnets are permanent, hidden, and powerful. There is no need to recharge, remove, or replace them…ever.)


Important: the SlideWinder ring is new technology. It is a magnetic floating fret. It is NOT a slide.


Note to slide guitar players: If you are a skilled tube slide player, SlideWinder ring IS NOT for you. If you want to play slide the regular way…buy a tube. Bottom line: If you want a “slide”…then buy a tube. This is NOT a slide…it eliminates the need to learn slide, and…it is different from slide. Slide tubes are hard to play and difficult to learn.


SlideWinder is easy to play, and easy to learn. 

However, if you try to FORCE IT to play like a tube, it will not be easy.

It plays itself. Tubes don’t. This does. It is different. 

SlideWinder is a NEW tool. It is not a tube, nor based on a tube. Rather, it is a magnetic FLOATING FRET, you wear like jewelry, because it IS REAL JEWELRY.



Caution – please keep these rings a safe distance from: flash drives, electronics such as cell phones, USB memory sticks, credit cards, hotel keys, pacemakers, etc. It’s simple: keep them in a separate location from these items.
