Should I get a glass or a metal slide for my acoustic? I asked one of the guys at Sam Ash and he said metal would be better for a steel string acoustic but I'm just curious what anyone else here thinks

Glass. It's so much nicer! Depends what metal though, either Glass or Brass. Steel is overly bright, unless your strings are dead.

Dammit gus, I wanted to pwn some n00bz, but you aren't a n00b

Steel is NOT overly bright. It's good for taming darker amps and guitars. Brass sounds dead sometimes on really dark guitars and amps.

Glass sounds too clean for a lot of applications IMO.

I like ceramic myself, the joe perry mudslide one's quite nice.


that slide is actually amazing. but i just use glass slides generally. a tapered and non-tapered. i use tapered more for rhythm (cuz i can reach lower strings much easier with the tapered), and non for lead.

I have trained a live tarantula to calm and sit on my guitar due to the awesome powers of my rocking. When I am not playing it angrily bounces about my room hitting everything that isn't me.

Steel is bright as **** on new strings dammit! it's got that annoying jangly sound, especially on acoustic.

Perhaps I exaggerated with the overly, but will you agree it's got a bright, in your face sound?

It is bright, but not overly bright. It's a useful sound for a lot of things.

Part of me is starting to learn to steel because I want a bright sound but not something thats too bright

i usually use steel on electric and its fine, i suck at slide but i dont think sucking at it effects how bright it is lol
