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

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.
