Dunlop 226 Stainless Steel Slide, Large
No matter whether you're a novice or a pro guitarist, sliding on your guitar is a skill that you will surely love. Guitar sliding is a globally used and loved technique where a guitarist slides from one string to another, moving between higher and lower frets and tones. While guitar sliding is a skill that takes some time to master, having the right guitar slide can truly make a world of difference.
The Dunlop 226 stainless steel slide in large size is one of the most popular slides from the global music accessories and equipment manufacturer. It is a part of Dunlop's wide range of guitar slides which come in all sizes and materials such as glass, metal and ceramic. This particular slide by Dunlop produces a unique sound which is attributed to its steel body, size and density.
Since this guitar slide is made of high quality stainless steel, it creates a bright and piercing sound. Another hallmark feature of steel is that it creates a fantastic and long sustain while playing, which guitarists often enjoy. The sparkling harmonics that this Dunlop stainless steel slide creates is one of the reasons why it is so sought after by guitarists.
Along with the excellent sound that this slide produces, what makes it special is the attention to detail that Dunlop has put into creating it. This stainless steel slide is sleek and evenly smooth on the outside so that you can effortlessly slide between keys on your fretboard. The exceptional quality of stainless steel ensures that there are no scratches on the surface of the slide that could negatively impact your playing experience. Dunlop has carefully provided a frosted surface on the inside of the slide, so that guitarists are able to maintain a strong grip while using the slide. This reduces the chances of the slide slipping from your finger while playing.
The large diameter of this steel slide will perfectly fit a ring size of 11. Finding a guitar slide that fits your finger well is of great importance, as a loose or tight guitar slide could impact your performance. Thanks to the steel used in making this slide, it is far more durable and reliable than glass or ceramic slides, so you don't have to worry about dropping and breaking it during a chaotic moment!
This Dunlop stainless steel slide features a thick wall, which makes it ideal for both acoustic as well as electric guitars. This steel slide can help you deliver warm acoustics or more vintage sounding electric performances. Since steel slides pair well with electric guitars, this could also be your go-to slide if you want to deliver a high volume and impactful electric guitar performance.
Dunlop is one of the world's most respected brands for music equipment and accessories. Knowing that this slide is designed and manufactured by this global industry leader, you can rest assured that this will be a quality product. All in all, this fantastic and sleek stainless steel slide is something that every guitarist should have in their kit!
