Product Description

  • Authentic representation of Eric Sardinas' own handmade slide
  • Fast, tapered shape
  • Thinned playing surface and flared, weighted end
Additional Information

The Preachin' Pipe is an authentic representation of maverick bluesman Eric Sardinas' own handmade slide. Sculpted by thousands of live shows, it has a fast, tapered shape from years of blazing across the strings of a sweat-soaked Dobro. Now you can experience the custom, fluid feel of the Pipe without spending a lifetime on roadhouse stages. Dunlop has faithfully recreated Sardinas' secret weapon with this finely machined piece of brass. From the perfectly thinned playing surface to the flared, weighted end, this slide is the real deal. Large (19-23.5 x 22.9-26.5 x 56.5mm)

I went and ground away a curve (with a rasp bit on a dremel) at the base so it sits down over my bent pinky finger at the first knuckle. I have medium sized hands but kinda fatter knuckles, and it is perfect now. It is long enough that it will still cover all the stings barely, and now my pinky tip is relatively close to the top, which I like for control when sliding on the top (bass) strings.
Great slide! I've had mine for maybe eight years? It's not too heavy and the curve is nice because you can cover all six strings for chord slides without mashing down so hard. Easy to handle, good sound. I'm not sure about the size, I wear mine on my pinky, and this one is advertised as large. i just bought a heavy chrome plated slide, first one since this one, and I like it but this is still my favorite. I never see this in stores, I think I ordered it online back then.
Amazing slide. Fits like a glove on my middle finger. A bit more mellow like glass then my symmetrical Brass-Slide. But still has that brass howl. Each slide has its own sound, I really like this one. If I lose it, I'll get another.
