Dunlop Glass Slides


Product Description

Dunlop manufactures 59 varieties of slides, which are divided by their material composition, wall thickness and sizing. There are four varieties of glass slide, heavy wall, medium wall, thin wall and flared. The glass slide will provide enough heft to play on thicker acoustic strings but will not be too cumbersome for electric all will providing a smooth, warm tone.

Tempered glass slides are preferred for full, rich tones. They sound warmer and more resonant than metal slides, producing smooth transitions with minimal string noise. Tempered glass slides are the top choice for many acoustic players, and they’re also favored by electric players who want the purest slide tones possible.

  • Warmer, thicker tone accentuates middle harmonics
  • Processed from high quality Boron Silicate
  • Heat treated and annealed to produce a flawless tube

Brickhouse Staff Notes...

Dunlop Glass Slides

Due to their light weight, glass slides do not gain as much momentum as their steel counterparts. This makes them easier to control while they provide warm and smooth tone. Glass slides make an excellent first slide choice.
