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 so one can either take advantage of the knuckle cut, or use the long side of the slides for greater string coverage. Size/Specs follow standard RS design but are slightly heavier & longer due to the added ball-tip.
This may be the one slide your resonator will NEVER leave home without.
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.
USA Ring size 6-7 (17.5mm I.D. – 47.5mm long – 45g)
Medium Rock Slides® are a perfect weight for most styles, heavy enough for long sustain on acoustic guitars, but light enough to easily control for fast electric playing.
USA Ring size 8-10 (19.5mm I.D. – 57.5mm long – 70g)
Large Rock Slides® are one of the heaviest on the scene. This makes for killer sustain on the thickest of string gauges and a down-right dark sound.
USA Ring size 11-12 (21.5mm I.D. – 59mm long – 100g)
