This heavyweight, 60mm (2.36in.) guitar slide features the popular Dunlop 224 heavy wall brass slide over a blue polymer inside diameter reduction sleeve. Product reviews show that many 224 users like the weight and heavy wall of the slide, but that the large inside diameter creates a poor fit that makes it difficult to use.
The addition of this inner sleeve reduces the inside diameter from US ring size 12-½ to US ring size 7, which can allow many users to play with this slide on their ring finger or little finger, depending on the size of the finger.
This modified 224 is also a great option for people with small, thin fingers, who would otherwise have difficulties finding a slide heavy, thick-walled slide that fits without rattling around or falling off.
Your slide will ship out shiny and polished, but over time the finish will darken and develop a deep, rich patina. The surface will likely begin to tarnish faster than normal, because I have removed the factory finish.
As you play, small markings will develop along the surface of the slide, which will in turn tarnish and add depth to the emerging patina. You will find that the more you play, the more dramatically the slide’s surface will be affected—the appearance of its finish will be directly related to your own playing style and therefore unique to you.
