cask wine is cool because you can blow up the cask and use it as a pillow when you are all gooned out.

Ah, their dumbass IT people set it up so you have to type a "WWW." That's so '90s.

Ian- Those were my slides! The Levy drawstring pouches were 'swag' giveaways from the Levy booth at NAMM. I grabbed a bunch last time.
Perfect slide sacks!

Some years ago, my stepson gave me a small plastic box of the kind fishermen keep lures and hooks etc in. Probably got it at Western Auto. It's about 4" X 6", and deep enough for slides. I keep my slides and bulletnose steel in it, fingerpicks and flatpicks. The top latches closed so everything doesn't spill out. I have found smaller, but similar boxes, at Hobby Lobby, and I put one with a slide and picks in each of my reso cases, so I'll not be caught without one.

Then I got a Hohner case for my harps, and found enough space to cut out the foam to acccomodate the slide box, and I've got one case to carry around that has the slides, and the harps, and an XLR-to-phone plug adapter for my harmonica mic.

The only thing left is a way to keep all this stuff at the ready at a gig, where I frequently trade off on harp and Dobro.

I used to use the traditional "tree" type guitar stands, and the curved tube that held the neck was perfect for hanging a bottleneck on, but I have moved on to A-frame stands, and increased my difficulties in keeping track of all the little doodads. Concurrently with that, I have gone over to lap-style playing with the bulletnose, multiplying my disorganization.

Hi Barry :wink:

Oh yes- i well remember them...i reckon your glassware would've made the trip over in those bags without the padded box :lol: - very nice bags indeed.

I got your mail about the impending tonefest & i'll get back to Dean today - thanks!

Happy Slidin'

Another thought is a leather cigar holder.


I wondered why I never got on with the smell of cigars and I used to think they were made of tobacco.
