The Preachin’ Pipe is an authentic reproduction of maverick bluesman Eric Sardinas’ own handmade slide. Sculpted by thousands of live shows, it has a fast, tapered shape from years of blazing across the strings of a sweat-soaked dobro. The pure brass is worn to perfect thinness where you connect with the strings, giving it a distinctive resonance and sensitivity. Of course, you might also want to let its flared, weighted end do the talking. Either way, now you can experience the custom, fluid feel of the Pipe—and its intensely feverish tone—without spending a lifetime on roadhouse stages. Get your own Preachin’ Pipe. It wasn’t just made for the blues—it was made by the blues.

19.5-23.5 x 17.5-21.5 x 56mm, fits ring size 9

Comments about Dunlop 284 Preachin Pipe Slide:

This slide is excellent. The sound it produces is what I was looking for. It resembles the blues from the 20's.
It is a little heavy for the pinky and my hand gets a little tired after a while, but it is worth-ed. The sound it produces is amazing. It sounds incredible with electric as well as with acoustic guitars.

PS: this is not for beginners. If you haven't used a slide before, you may get a lighter one at first.
