Rotosound Introduce New Guitar Slides

PRESS RELEASE (January 14, 2012) - To complement its ever-increasing accessories series, Rotosound is pleased to introduce its new range of guitar slides. The new 2mm thick slides are available in glass, steel and brass and come in two lengths 60mm and 40mm. Whatever the type of music you play, the action your guitar has or the gauge of string you use, Rotosound has a guitar slide to suit you.

Roto1

The new Pyrex Glass Bottleneck Slides (S1GD - Double Pack, RRP £9.95, S1GS - Single Pack RRP £5.95) are designed to be of the perfect weight and finish. They don't dig in; they ride the strings giving a very pure, clean tone. The lovely smooth surface of these slides, gives a beautifully sweet glassy sound helping to create easy harmonics.

Roto2

For a more retro, blues sound try the Brass Slide (S1BD - Double Pack RRP £24.95, S1BS - Single Pack £11.95), which gives a mellow growl, compared to a glass one. The metal is softer than the strings, making for a more tactile connection when you play. These slides have a bright resonance, high sustain and give a dirty gritty sound.

Roto3

For a sound in-between these two, Rotosound have the stainless Steel Slide (S1SD - Double Pack RRP £16.95, S1SS - Single Pack RRP £9.95). Stainless steel is corrosion resistant and possess the ability to self heal minor surface scratches which means your slide will readily keep its frictionless, streamlined finish making it effortless to move along the strings. A Steel Slide has a sharp brassy tone, with some grit in it. The tone it produces is more brash with a long sustain and sparkling harmonics.

Rotosound Guitar Slides are engineered to the same exacting standards as all their strings. Selecting a guitar slide is like selecting guitar strings, a matter of personal preference, and when it comes to quality that why guitar players prefer Rotosound.
