Maybe they wore wasecote, lace cuffs and powdered wig as they scribed their melodies, quill pen in hand. :roll:
I dunno… :wink:

And to BJ, thanks for the advice old buddy. This afternoon I crouched over my buffing disc which I frequently smeared with Autosol, a German made metal polish, and got that slide so darned smooth that you could, you could....well you know what I mean. And so my mouse has departed for another amateur slide maker to terrorise. :D Peace.

So I made a truckload of glass slides from beer and wine bottles, but was dissatisfied with them all - they were not heavy enough to produce decent sustain and mostly they had straight sides (not parallel but straight).

Champagne bottle, much thicker glass, Though I did come across a rather pleasant wine which came in a particularly heavy bottle. So I have a stak of about a dozen waiting to be converted, (not drunk, that bit was easy). Always go for modern glass unless you want to polish.
Solution? Drink more... :D

2012-11-14T10:10:47+00:00 <![CDATA[Re: A mouse in my triolian.]]> And those tiny squeals have bothered me before as well..

I did send a home made slide to Mr McWee at Diamond Bottlenecks in the UK and they polished to a mirror glaze, haha!
No more problems after that!!!!

All bottles have a rougher surface and therefore they produce unwanted(mostly) noise..

I don't think there's any good method for polishing glass at home though..

Send it to a glass forming company and have yours fixed!!! :mrgreen:

Problem? 'Fraid so. I hadn't made it myself.

So I kept on looking and finally in a junk shop came across an old whisky bottle (empty alas) with a long curved neck. After I cut it, finished the ends and ground and polished the seams off, I was most pleased to discover that it conformed perfectly to the fretboard and was a meaty 4mm thick, weighed almost as much as my brass and sustained long and sweet. I had my self made bottleneck slide. Case closed.

Not quite 99. I notice that when I play the two unwound steel strings (b&e) the glass on steel produces a high pitched squeal, the two materials needing some lubrication between them. It only occurs when I play hard with lots of pressure and the squeal mostly gets lost in all the other sounds, but I can hear it enough to annoy me.

So to wind up my long and rambling story, has anyone else had this phenomenon and found out how to overcome it? :D Peace.
