This is the second 215 that I've bought- purely because I wanted a backup and really like it. It's got a thick wall which gives a lovely tone. I've experimented with a few slides and materials but have settled on this one. I use it on my ring finger and it sits fairly loosely; I prefer this kind of feel. Considering I've dropped it quite a bit (and it's fine!) and bought my first 215 about seven years ago I'd say it's great value!
Do you believe this rating to be inaccurate or unacceptable for some reason?
Dunlop glass slide
Jens2695 on 24.03.2014
I got this Dunlop glass slide years ago in 2010 and I still use it today. I have tried it out on Classical and Acoustic guitars as well as Electric Guitars and it does seem to work quite well on most of them. It covers the fretboard well and gives you some nice sounds. It's solid glass no sharp edges and won't crack if you drop it.
Now when I started playing around with this I thought that this size would work for my fingers and it does. However since then my playing style have changed somewhat. I wanted to be able to do picking in the middle of songs while using the glass slide at the same time. Look for Leo Kottke playing Vaseline Machine gun.
So that have made me switch the finger I use for the glass slide, but that in turn made it more loose on my finger. I can still use it though, and I know some people like slides to be looser around the finger. So it's more of what you personally prefer. For a beginner guitar player or someone who intend to stick with strictly slide guitar (and not use the pinky) however then this is one slide I would recommend.
However for me next time I get a glass slide (and it would be a Dunlop one) I would go for a smaller slide to fit my pinky better.
