Customer Reviews

This may be what you wantThere is a lot of personal preference involved in choosing a slide. This slide sticks out farther than the more common type and has a sharper corner. That makes a much louder pull-off and the length takes some getting used to. That means you can touch one string precisely, but mistakes are more prominent. I find the height of the wood fits my hand nicely and I get a good grip. The all metal slide misses both those points. But other people prefer the all metal slide. I notice their hands are not shaped like my hands. So you just have to try a few slides and see what fits you.5Easier to grip.It is easier to use/hold for someone who does have arthritis and limited function in hand.5Seriously ergonmic - needs more weight thoughWell - fits my hand very nicely and is comfortable to play. Not enough weight - this bar would be perfect if it had some additional weight. I may have to get the drill out and some soft weighty metal ? hmmmmmm?3My favorite slide!!I amnew to reso playing but have tried a couple different slides. I have kinda shorter chubby fingers and this slide fits comfortably in my hands and they don't get that cramped feeling other slides do that don't have the wooden handle. I highly recommened giving thus slide a try!5Not exactly what I expected.Says it is 4 inches. I think it's closer to 3 . Hope my husband will still like it for his 12 string peddle steel.It is nice looking and weighted though.3I love it!I play a vintage1959 round neck Dobro set up for traditional playing. I usually play with a traditional hold and a brass SlideRite slide on my little finger, being shy of the lap playing style as limiting and awkward... until now! This is absolutely, bar none, the best Dobro bar I've tried. (Mine is 4.3 oz. contrary to the Amazon description) From steel to copper to brass and glass, I've found found bars too heavy or too light and awkward to hold. This one is just right.The contours for gripping this bar are very comfortable, allowing for a relaxed hold that delivers a wonderfully clean, clear tone. It floats over the strings with the lightest guidance. I love it!5Really Comfortable to use.really comfortable. Not quite as heavy as the all metal versions. And it is a little "higher" off of the strings, which for "aging hands" is a good thing.5Perfect balance >> better control >> better playing!My musical tastes have gone through quite an evolution since I started playing guitar 30+ years ago. As such, I've grown more and more interested in the tones that can only be achieved through older, vintage folk type instruments. I picked an old Supro lapsteel guitar a few years ago, and up until now have only been capable of extracting the musical equivalent of a screeching cat from it.Fast forward to my having ordered a Shubb slide. As soon as I took it out of the package, I knew that what I was holding was a game changer. The slide has amazing balance, and seems to naturally fit into your hand in a way that provides a level of control that no other slide that I've tried previously had been able to achieve.Thus far, I've tried a spare socket, a glass bottleneck slide, a Stevens contoured slide, and a few sizes of bullet slides. The Shubb GS (Gary Swallows) slide beats them all. I'm now afforded a great deal more control, and in turn, have been able to dramatically improve my technique. Even the subtle angled ends allow you to contact only a few strings at a time, that opens up new possibilities. The stainless steel bar is a generous 3 1/16 inch from end to end. The wooden grip is contoured to allow your fingers and thumb to naturally grip the slide in a way that provides for optimal contol, and reduces slippage. The wood seems to have a very very light satin finish (if at all) and seems like it will age gracefully to an even more optimal smoothness.When you place the slide on a table or flat surface, it natually lands in the correct playing position, which is evidence of the fact that the perfect amount of balance has gone into the design of the slide.While at first glance, this may seem a very simple device, and may even visually seem to be only a gimmick in its appearance, don't be fooled. This is one of those rare accessories that truly has the capability of taking your playing to the next level. If you're like me, and have been frustrated with learning to play a lapsteel or dobro, give one of these slides a chance before you give up on the instrument. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised!5How it compares to a Lap Dawg: Different but Nice.When I first started playing dobro, this steel was WAY more comfortable to my hand than the Lap Dawg. It's considerably taller, and the wood both feels nice and helps me keep a decent grip on the bar. The Lap Dawg made my hand cramp initially, so the extra height really seemed to help me get used to playing a square neck.I did eventually switch over to the Lap Dawg as my primary steel, but I've recently started switching back and forth. Some of the differences between this and the Lap Dawg (which is currently my only other steel):* This is a bit longer.* This one significantly more angled edges. That makes it hard to switch back and forth.* This is stainless steel, and seems like it might be holding up better. My Lap Dawg's got a few dings and scratches. This has some tiny scratches but nothing I can feel on the strings.* As mentioned, this one's much easier to hold onto during a long jam because the wood doesn't get slippery like an all metal steel.4My favorite steel so farI love it for my Weissenborn but it might be a tad light for dobro with extra heavy strings. About as light as you would want to go and still have good sustain, especially on the 6th string (I'm using 0.056"). The light weight allows for fast, effortless movement/acceleration, hammer-ons and vibrato, and a lighter touch for medium-heavy strings and lower action of a Weissenborn. I have five steels and this one is now my favorite. The stainless steel surface has a mirror finish and should be a lot more resistant to dings and scratches than plated brass.5
