THIS LISTING IS FOR 1   GUITAR SLIDE

BRAND --- The Rock Slide

MODEL NUMBER -- GRS-XLC

SERIES --- Moulded Glass

MODEL NAME -- Clear Rock

23.5 mm x 66mm

Ring Size --- 12-14

MATERIAL --- Glass

COLOR ------- Clear

Moulded Glass Rock Slides are individually hand moulded by master lampworkers.  These have all the same features as our brass Rock Slide® with the Knuckle Cut, Finger Rest and Tapered Interior.  These fit almost exactly like their brass counterpart but are slightly longer. The main difference being that they are much lighter & faster so you can really cook with these on an electric guitar.  Because of our unique tapered interior design they do have enough mass to light up your acoustic.

The Rock Slide Difference Problem 1:

Slides tend to go two ways, they feel like a cast in the way they restrict your finger, or they have too much wiggle room forcing you to cramp your fingers all night to keep the slide from falling off.

Problem 2:

It’s either thin & comfortable, but has no tone – or – it is a bulky slide that sounds good, but is cumbersome.

Problem 3:

No matter what slide you buy, it wobbles. Sure, it’s snug at the 2nd knuckle, but loose across the rest of the finger.

Solution?

Don’t cut, carve the perfect slide! We made a slide that tapers inside to maintain a snug feel all the way down your finger. The added benefit is thicker walls for extra weight and sustain. A cutaway at the second knuckle helps maintain finger bendability and prevents pinching. Lastly, the flat finger rest is more stable than resting on a round surface.

SMALL ROCK SLIDES are the sports car of the slide world, very light weight and extremely fast. Ideal for the guitarist who needs to play chords but wants to throw in pinky slide chops. It also works well on the ring finger of many women.

The Moulded Glass Rock Slide also has very thick walls because of the internal taper, in fact, the walls at the opening are 4mm and 6-8mm thick at the fingertip end. That’s about twice the thickness of a typical heavy wall glass slide at the end. A baseball bat has a sweet spot for hitting a home run, The Rock Slide® has a sweet spot too. While it is thick enough everywhere to light up the strings, the extra thick end almost acts as a gain knob which helps bring out the low notes, and makes for killer lead playing.
