Ceramic Rock Slides have an ultra hard/smooth finish similar to glass but produce more sustain and low end since they outweigh the glass, and even our brass slides. They’re far more durable than glass being made out of high heat industrial ceramic rather than typical coffee mug style studio clay. Hi-tech injection moulding gives you the same tapered interior and other Rock Slide features you’ve come to love on the other models.
Short Mediums are 49mm long just like our standard small size, inside diameter is 19.5mm like our medium. They have have a 3mm wall instead of 4mm for faster action and a little less weight. Perfect for people who want a pinky slide but don’t fit inside our standard small, or if you find our medium slide to be too long for your ring finger.

Elio Lopez –
I’ve been playing slide for many years and have used everything except ceramic and bone. I recently bought one of the ceramic slides and I must say, like all the other Rock slides it is great. It gives you the warm sound with extended sustain that ceramic is provide. The feel on my finger, (I use my pinky while chording, etc on standard tuning) is very comfortable and easy to control. Rock slides are a bit more price-wise, but they are well worth the difference.
