Nice looking slides.

2010-07-16T04:48:53+00:00 <![CDATA[Re: Paloma Stoneware Slides, The Scoop!]]> Many thanks to Jay for shipping it to my family's address in Washington while I'm up here on vacation. I've used the slide on several jams with some of my buddies, and it has outstanding tone on my Les Paul. It's the only guitar I have with me up here in Washington, but as soon as I get back to Phoenix, my resonator is gonna see a lot of Paloma action.

The construction of the slide is flawless and the glaze is absolutely perfect. The weight is absolutely perfect as well. Well worth the money I paid. If it got lost or broken, I wouldn't hesitate for a second to replace it.

2010-07-16T00:45:37+00:00 <![CDATA[Re: Paloma Stoneware Slides, The Scoop!]]> volume and sustain are great--I've got a new favorite slide now.

Of course the old brass hunk and the two bottlenecks and the ceramic slides will still have their place--as a place to gather dust and something to clean now and then.

I guess I could say more--but I gotta go play my guitar.

Thank you very much Jay--I'll be telling everybody about your slides at Centrum Blues week--I hope you do well with such a great product. . .

We contacted the guys at Keele Uni over here, and they put us in touch with the team that record Bats in caves & old houses! They use state-of-the-art recording equipment & the results are then put on a 'soundwave graph', logged & databased.

We sent a bunch of slides up to Keele.....and they actually completed the recording & e-mailed me two 'soundwave graphs' of glass types & brass as a comparison.

I've never added these soundwave graphs to our website (looks a little too anorakey :shock: ), but if anyone would like to upload these graphs onto here, or maybe even begin a brand-new thread for me (computer expert i'm not!) i'll be more than happy to e-mail the info if anyone wishes to drop me a line..... :wink:

Slide On!

I'd like to post some of the comments about Paloma slides on my web site, if no one minds. Or if you'd like to write a review that I can post, better yet!

You're welcome to use any of my yammering. If I got anything too wrong about the pottery stuff, correct me and I'll fix it.

~ as there are so many different slides now available, has anyone thought of producing a 'bullet belt' like the Cowboy's wore - instead of placing bullets in the loops, just make 'em to fit slides 8)

Now there's an awesome idea for a leather worker!

Some of the things harpers use for their tin sandwiches might be adaptable to slide totin'.
