I want to improve my blues playing by adding some delta blues tones. So I decided that a slide should get me the tone. I would like to know which is better, a glass or steel slide.

Glass sounds better but is easier to break while steal sounds a'ight and doesn't break as easy. Besides you can make a glass one by breaking a bottle neck off and smoothing the edges do you dont cut yourself

Brass sounds amazing, Glass sounds amazing (given that you get some heavy glass, if it's thin glass it will sound like crap), steel just sounds alright.

Glass sounds more mellow and is "easier to master"

I perfer metal slides though.
