This feather weight, .8 ounce brass guitar slide is the perfect addition to your tonal arsenal. The Zn64 is a low profile slide that offers the tone of brass, without the weight and bulk. It’s an everyday slide that can ride in your pants pocket, along side your keys, and can be at the ready for an unexpected trip to the guitar store or a jam session at a friend’s house.
Each Zn64 slide is fabricated from the casing of a spent .50 caliber round. The shell is ground and filed to shape and then sanded and polished to an appealing finish that will form a rich patina over time.
For some players (depending on finger size) this slide can be worn on the ring finger, but it’s greatest value is as a slide accompaniment worn on the pinky finger to accent the fretwork of the first three fingers. This slide is so light weight that it is barely noticeable on the pinky, when fretting single notes or chords, and its snug fit keeps it from sliding off—this slide feels like an extension of your finger.
All edges are filed, sanded and polished for comfort and aesthetics. The lower portion is cut away at an angle, to provide greater maneuverability and a slightly larger inside diameter at the rim. This adds to the style and elegance of the Zn64 and most importantly your playing experience.
The Zn64 brass casing guitar slide comes with a cotton drawstring carrying bag to protect its finish from the hazards of your everyday carry.
Length – ~2.36” (60mm)
Inside Diameter: 5/8” (15.875mm)
(US Ring Size – 7)
I wear a US ring size 10 and this fits my pinky finger perfectly, but it’s also great for players with thin fingers, who find normal slides too large.
Each slide is handcrafted in Fenton, Missouri.
Price – $13.31 (plus shipping)
