The revolution continues with the Balltip Rock Slide®. This slide features everything you’ve come to expect from a Rock Slide®, the cutaway, tapered interior, excellent weight and comfort, but now in a lap/pedal steel inspired ball tip.
Balltip Rock Slides® have two notable features when compared to an original Rock Slide®. First off is the very obvious ball nose which makes this a combo slide for use on a variety of other instruments like Dobro or Lap Steel. Secondly, the slide has 2 playing surfaces for a longer or shorter slide. Size/Specs follow standard RS design but are slightly heavier & longer due to the added ball-tip.
If you are into tweed and worn
out looking gear these are for you. Tonally they sound similar to a
standard brass balltip Rock Slide, but they resemble something from the bottom
of the Bayou. We individually hand age these using a multi-step recipe of
destruction. They have a smooth finish for playability.
Each slide is aged by hand.
Appearance will vary from slide to slide.
The one slide your resonator should NEVER leave home without.
