Guitar Slide Comparison - RMSC/Dunlop/cheap steel spacer

Just a relatively quick and dirty test. I will have to get a good mic out and redo at some point. If you wear headphones, you can hear some subtle difference...

Yup, a lot of mass there lol. I do like them on a high-action acoustic, but it's too much for an electric, usually.

And, np, Mike.

Excellent thank you. There is a lowes near me and will be making a stop. Thanks Jay!

No problem. I actually get those at Lowe's. I've never found them at HD. They are in the section of hardware with all the drawers. They are just labeled "steel spacer" if I recall correctly. I've heard TSC has brass but haven't checked. I believe they are axle spacers.

Thanks for posting. The spacer you have, where do I find that at HD? What is it a spacer for? Thanks in advance!

Yeah the bone tends to be a bit brighter, but I like using the wood part..a bit warmer sound with nearly no string chatter like ceramic or glass.  Mass does make a difference in sound, the ideal slide for me would be one of my wood topped ones with added weight....something to think on.

Hm. Interesting...

Comment by Jay Patton on April 17, 2015 at 4:44pm
Yeah, I can't see me picking one type over the other. I like steel with acoustics, and glass or ceramic with electrics. I think the biggest difference is the feel. I do hear a tad more resonance with a ceramic, but would the listener? The length, however... going shorter changed my world. I need to break down and get a bone slide eventually. No experience there yet.

Nevermind, I just found it. Crazy stuff.

You have any demo vids of that thing, Randy?
