This is such a truly unique slide we call it "Evolution" -comprising both the weight of steel & the tone of glass - one half being heavy, highly-polished stainless steel & the other half being a toughened glass insert bonded together as a tube, offering two playing surfaces from a single slide using the weight of the steel to offer a smooth, sustaining glass tone from one 'face', and a sweet, biting steel tone from the other ~ a true "Evolution"!
The "Evolution" is available in one length - 60mm (2.3/8"), with an internal diameter of 20mm. (3/4"). Premium quality highly-polished stainless steel is used for the one half of 'Evolution' ~ the other half comprises of a specially-formulated toughened 'industrial standard' glass, created to stand the rigours of playing & touring.
Tom Doughty is a truly unique slide guitarist in a world where that term is seriously over-used & abused. We got to know Tom through originally supplying him a couple of custom-made 'Ultimate' lead-crystal glass slides - but to facilitate Tom's amazing slide style he needed extra weight without increased slide diameter.
Necessity being the mother of invention, Tom designed and created the prototype of this featured slide & asked the team at Diamond Bottlenecks to produce his idea of what we consider to be the perfect all-round guitar slide.
