"Cool box and git.  I always save extra pieces like that.  Just used a home made tail piece a couple days ago - left over from something that had not worked out."

Oh, thank you Mike! That's so great to hear! You know I spent a year experimenting with all kinds of variables in the slide design to get the tone & playability I really liked. I shared them with local friends, then some mail order, & at the Georgia CBG fest. The thing that really drew me into making more and more was getting feedback from folks about how much they enjoyed playing with them. I never planned to be making slides this seriously - my primary work is making nature inspired ceramic sculptures and doing gallery shows. But the feeling of being able to create something small that other people get joy out of using on a daily basis to create music - man, that's just a really cool thing! I'm so thankful to Ben & C.B. Gitty for partnering with me for distribution. I don't sell my other artwork online, so I don't have a 'shipping department'! I don't think there are any better people out there to work with, and it's awesome to know my slides are finding their way to folks and brightening up people's days with the joy of music. (Man, I sound cheesy, but this is totally heart felt.)

The surface quality of the glazes affects the tone, so I'm very picky about what glazes I use. I mix them myself from scratch. I do have a bright white one that C.B. Gitty isn't stocking yet. 

Thank you again for your note Mike! This is exactly why I devote my time to making slides.

Mike,

    Hey, I think I screwed up and told you something wrong on tuning.  I am a dunce.  Got it confused.  DAD is key of D.  GDG is key of G.  It's the outside keys that determine the key and open strum chord.  Sorry.

John

Thanks on the sound comparison, Mike.  The owl is my favorite.  The reso is nice and the reso somehow sounds so SMOOTH plugged in.  

 

Good to peruse your photos again.  That reddish f hole git is fine.   That bone slide is interesting.  The git with a scarfed neck is well done.  

 

Are you going to the K.C. cbg min-fest on the last day of July?  I an a 'maybe'.
