Wolfram Martin Simpson Artist Series Signature Guitar Slide - Small Size

  • £35.99
Loading...

In 2013, Wolfram rocked the slide guitar world with their precision-made tungsten carbide guitar slide, played and endorsed by Martin Simpson, Michael Messer, Scott Fore, Richard Gilewitz and many others.  A Guitarist Choice award and glowing press reviews cemented their reputation as the maker of the ‘Bugatti Veyron’ of guitar slides.  However, the extreme challenges of working with the ultra-hard tungsten carbide, the eight-week manufacture time and requirement for a specialist hard-metals engineering facility for production put them financially out of reach for many.

Now, Wolfram have distilled the essence of their award-winning tungsten carbide slides into the Artist Series, delivering amazing tone and feel but using more conventional materials to offer this performance at an affordable price.  What hasn’t changed is the innovative design, obsession with quality and fastidious attention to detail.

The Martin Simpson Artist Series Signature Slide is precision machined in England from a solid billet of the highest quality marine-grade stainless steel, to exactly the same straight outer, tapered interior design as Martin’s tungsten carbide Signature Slide. That taper balances much of the 106 gram weight of the slide toward the fingertip where it is most needed to produce rich, fat tone and serious sustain, while reducing overall bulk and keeping the slide agile. The taper also makes for a supremely comfortable fit on either the little or ring fingers. The surface is lovingly polished by hand to a mirror finish, to provide a beautiful low-friction playing experience, giving you the finest control over intonation and vibrato - and you hear more of the ‘note’ with virtually no string noise.

The ends of the slide are ground to a precise compound radius, to ensure a silky smooth glide across the strings with no snagging - moreover, that edge is also smooth and polished, so it makes an excellent playing surface for sensitive interaction with single strings.

In short, these are the best sounding and performing steel slides we know how to make. Wolfram Slides are the world’s finest guitar slides, engineered for ultimate tone, sustain and feel.

Wolfram Martin Simpson Artist Series Signature Guitar Slide - Small Size

Over the years I've bought and tried many different makes and types of slide. These are now my 'go to' preference. They are super smooth and well balanced. I've got quite big hands and I find the small size fits perfectly over my fourth finger. They are quite weighty but this makes for a positive slide motion over the strings. I've now got 5 of them and retired my other metal slides.
