I have been wanting to try a ceramic slide to see how it sounds verse the aluminum one I have been using.  We have the equipment to make them so I decided to give it a try.  This is a pic of the 1st batch, The bad news is only a few of the biggest ones fit my ring/small finger.  The bulk of the batch turned out to be ring size 6.5 or about 0.670"ID.  They range in length from 1-1/4" - 2-1/4".  If anyone here would like to give these a try (and your finger is small enough to wear it) send me a message.  You pay the postage (small flat rate box $5.75) and I will give you up to 3 slides for free.  Get-em while they last.  Please specify which slide you would like in your message.  Dan

 Dan, I'd love one or two. I've sent you a PM.

I've got you down for #6 and 28 Jim.  Sent you a message for shipping.

Hey Dan, if any left please let me know, thanks.

I have the last four left 1, 3, 15 and 34.  Do you want them all?

Only if no one else wants any. This is very kind of you to do this for the nation.

Looks like we have one more taker.  Tell you what I will make 1 and 34 yours along with another slightly larger one to make the third.  I will send you a message with the shipping details.

That works for me, thanks Dan.

Could I get 9,10,11   ??  or I'll take any 3 u got left !!

I'd love to have as amy as u can let me have ,, don t wanta b greedy ,, but those are some really cool looking thing a giggers !

Sorry but those are all gone already.  I can give you the last two 3 and 15 and I have one more larger one I will throw in for the third.  Shipping details to follow.

That's It!   They are all gone.  I hope these work for everyone.  Please give me some feedback on how they work since I can't play slide at all yet.

Dan

Those are gorgeous, but likely too small for me.   Dan, generous offer and shipping will take time effort  and money.   I hope you charge enough shipping to come out okay.   Best wishes to all.
