This is a beautiful polished brass "stubby" guitar slide, perfect for grinding out some gritty old blues on your slide guitar, cigar box guitar, lap steel or whatever you like to play with a slide. The slide is 1 1/2 inches in length (plus or minus 1/16 inch), and the inside diameter is approximately 13/16" (.815"), which will fit over the first knuckle on medium-sized ring fingers, and up to the first knuckle on larger fingers. If you have a very large ring finger, these might be a bit too snug. If you wear the slide on your little finger, you can always use the piece of included moleskin (see below) to size it to fit. These slides are hand-made in the USA in our own workshop.
These slides have been carefully buffed and polished to a satin or semi-gloss finish (we do not do a flawless mirror finish - it would just get scuffed by the strings anyway when playing), with a special metal polishing compound that leaves behind a protective film. However, with use and wear this natural brass will dull and tarnish - but it is easily buffed and polished back to a nice shine using fine steel wool or other brass-polishing methods. The ends of this slide have been carefully smoothed and polished as well to make sure playing with them is a comfortable experience for the user.
We make each of these by hand here in the C. B. Gitty workshops in New Hampshire (USA), and more time goes into cutting, smoothing and polishing them than you might think. Sure there are cheaper slides out there, but we like to think these are just a little bit special!
We include a square of self-adhesive faux moleskin with each of these slides for use in sizing the inside of the slide to your finger.
