Imperial Valley Blackstone™ Polished Stone Guitar Slide
This is a new product that goes right along with our resonators. It’s a slide that’s made from stone. This is a slide that is literally made from rock. The onyx stone is drilled and turned on a lathe to make a really unique and cool sounding slide.
Tone-wise the Blackstone slide is warmer and not as whiney as a glass slide and has less string noise. The sound is somewhere between brass and glass. Even though it is are actually made from stone, it’s not especially heavy. Even with the extra thick walls it’s still only 2.2 ounces, lighter than a heavy wall brass or steel slide.
