Some of the things I liked back then for playing slide on electric don't give the volume and tone I'd like on Reso, so I'm back to a lot of experimenting. The 12 ga barrel works well (and adds significantly to the novelty factor). I am looking forward to trying a diamond once it's ready. I do wish I still had the bottle cutting kit. Part of the fun of bottleneck is experimenting. And it's a lot cheaper trying and collecting slides than it is guitars.

Slide On!

Ian.

I had the good fortune of finding Ian in a good frame of mind with an "Ultimate", in my size, with a small, very small chip. It was a notch cut, and it was surprisingly inexpensive. Green. Love green.

Anyway...I always thought the notch went toward the palm, playing with the little finger, to allow for more ease in the bend. But it is most beneficial playing with the notch inside against the ring finger for me. Though I'm not sure it should be called a notch, perhaps a "dip"? Maybe "Comfort Cut" or...gad ferbid.. "Kumfert Kut"..... :lol:

No-one can stop a U.S slide company actually adding a 'notch-cut' to a slide - plenty have done so - but you can't visibly offer this addition on any U.S website as part of a legitimate sale! Legally, you can offer a 'notch-cut' as an after-sales option, but you must have proof that you have not made any monetary profit from the addition of this option, and never state in writing that a 'notch-cut' is available on your products for money!!

Slide On!

Ian.

I want to thank Ian again for reminding me of that patent, as I was about to really step in it. At the same time I wonder if I made the slides without the cut, then sold one and advised the end buyer of what to do if I would be pushing the limits.

My fingers are a little on the slender side, so there's a little extra room on my pinky. It could work on my ring finger (if I could play with it on my ring finger!)

Looks cool and has a nice feel and tone.

Thanks!
