I like my Tractor Supply bronze trailer link bushing on my electrics. It's made of tiny bronze chips & powder sintered together so it's porous, and it's heated and saturated with heavy oil. The surface is a bit rough, so you'll have to work it over with fine steel wool for a while to slicken it up.

Today what I've got with me is my brass Dunlop #224, which is the first slide I bought and still like a lot.

The Bronze Bomber is awesome, got it today. So *that* is what this guitar is supposed to sound like :). Heavy mother though, puts my pinky to sleep when I'm not playing.

Thanks everyone!
