Good slide

This is my first slide, so I don't can compare it, but it feels very comfortable and it makes a lot fun to play with it. Quality? Well, it's a metal tube ... no sharp edges or anything like that.

Let's slide, but have a look at your finger size!

Indeed, after listening to some country music, I wanted to have a steel bottleneck to play some slide songs. Guitar was tuned to open D and I ordered the Dunlop 220. It sounds great and the metal did not weather yet after about a 3/4 year which shows the good quality.

My hint: Have a look at your finger size. I can use the bottleneck on my index and middle finger, but it's diameter is too large for my ring finger (which got a diameter of about 1.5 cm). So if you have larger fingers, don't worry, it will be perfect. If you have smaller fingers like me, have a look for another slide with another diameter. But that's not Dunlops fault, of course!

A cheap way to expand the possibilites of your guitar playing

Fretted instruments have one little problem: they can't really do glissando notes. Luckily, some decades ago, someone invented the slide and the problem was gone. A must-have for blues and southern rock, but also useful for more experimental stuff. Use some compression/slight distortion, delay and maybe some reverb and you can get some wonderful, spherical sounds. Check out David Gilmour of Pink Floyd using it on the section starting at about 5 five minutes into Saucerful of Secrets live at Pompeii, it's really worth it. ;)

Will not break

It's smooth outside, somewhat rough inside for a better grip. It's chromed, so unless you somehow severely damage the surface with sharp objects, it will stay stainless.
