Joey Landreth Signature Guitar Slides


Joey Landreth Signature Guitar Slides

(9 customer reviews)

We met Joey Landreth through our website.  Joey eventually sent us a copy of his album “Let it Lie”.  When we listened to it we were floored by 4 part vocal harmonies, acoustic, dobro, and straight up rock with a hint of country.  It’s no wonder they are Juno Award winners and touring internationally.  Over the years, we have become friends and recently developed a signature slide for him.

Joey’s guitar slide is a modified version of our original small brass slide.  We stretched it out to 2 1/8 – inch length compared to the original 1 3/4 – inch length.  This gives some added weight and full string coverage. 17.5mm x 54mm Ring Size 7-8.5

The only question is which one do you want to try first?

    Customer service 5/5… nothing more to say!
    Quality 5/5… nothing more to say!
    Packing 2/5… Not the best quality and also very large so it takes a big space with no need for that. I am surprised many people like the packing!
    Sound 5/5… Again nothing more to say!
    Size 5/5.. and here comes what i need to say… I have relatively small fingers and i use the slide on my pinkie. The Joey Landreth slide is a perfect fit for me. The length is good but i think i must mention that the standard brass slide with the shorter length would be unusable for me. This is simply why i bought this one. I did not know of Joey Landreth before i checked this website and when i checked his music, i found it is also not my favorite!
    What i am trying to say is that the dimensions on this slide should be the standard dimensions not a signature model for any guitar player.
    I am very very much interested in a glass model with the same fit and length but unfortunately it does not exist!!!

    BluesBoy must be off his meds.

    Ariel slide is perfect. Been using a socket for years for string coverage and weight. This slide does both and provides more accuracy. Excellent.

    My Pinkie is a 9.5 or a 9.0 if I squeeze it hard. Sure would be nice to know if and when the Joey were to come in a little bit larger size.

      Hi Leland. The standard medium brass is the same design as the Joey Landreth slide in the next size up. Sorry for not making this clear. Let us know if you’d like to exchange the JL for a TRS-MB.

    Ok. So this is my third polished brass Rock Slide variant, and I like it the best.
    #1. Small 47.5 mm slide. Fit my pinky great, super tone, gentle touch on the strings, BUT to short for tunes where I wanted to play full chords. 🙁
    #2. The medium 58mm slide. Again. Great slide, awesome tone. Flip it over and it covers all the strings. BUT … not so gentle on the strings, and it’s to large for my pinky. I have to kinda grip it with my ring finger, and it’s a bit heavy for my pinky. (So it’s hard to gently land the slide on the strings without getting a jangle.)
    #3. The Ariel Posen 59mm slide. This slide has great tone, and has a lot of finesse. It fits snugly on my pinky so my ring finger is free to fret or mute the strings, and it’s also lighter than the medium.

    While this IS my favorite of the Rock Slides (so far) I do have two criticism. (So maybe Rock Slide take these suggestions under advisement and send me some prototypes. 🙂
    1. I concur with the reviewer who complained that the slide should come in more finger size gradients. This fits my pinky a little too snug, and I have small fingers. (But it’s secure, so I’ll take it.)
    2. It is not actually 59mm. The flat surface area is shorter than the 58mm medium slide. It’s only 59mm when the rounded tip is taken into account. I was hoping it would be slightly longer, but when flipped over long ways, it covers all the strings so I can play full chords.

    So Rock Slide, I’m really enjoying the Ariel. I’ll keep the checks coming.

    I bought the Ariel Posen slide and I love it. It fits my ring(nice and tight) and pinky fingers (comfortably.) I’m used to playing with a coricidin bottle and a piece of copper pipe that I asked for off a job I did once. I like those but these rock slide designs really are a lot more comfortable and easier to use. For starters I’ve never had a slide that fit so well. Perfect size. Not clunky and it doesn’t move around. I don’t know if it’s in the angle cut where it meets your finger or the tapered metal but it makes a difference.

    Initially, I had thought that this slide had the finger rest (dents) in the side walls but when I received it I realized that it didn’t. Upon trying it out I had determined that I really liked the slide and didn’t want to send it back. I sent him an email and explained everything and he gave me a really good deal on a second slide. I will say if you are looking for the finger rest to be on there you might want to go with Joey Landreth’s model or ask about getting one customized because the ball tip doesn’t normally come with it. I will be advertising to any slide guitarists in my neck of the woods, I believe these are the best slides on the market. Customer service just puts the cherry on top. Try it, you won’t be sorry. If you are there’s something wrong with “you” and not the product. Make sure and ask though if you have a really different size of fingers than what is listed and Danny will fix you up. Here’s an idea guys, measure your slide finger(s) and get the right one. 🙂

    I purchased the Aged Brass Balltip Ariel Posen Signature slide from Chicago Music Exchange for a great price.

    I have played for years with Craftsman deep well socket and have never been happy with anything else until I tried this slide. I still love my Craftsman but this one is going to get a lot of attention, the length is perfect and the weight feels great.

    The only reason I took off one star, is that I need a slightly bigger inner diameter for my pinky, I can use it, but it feels just a little too snug. I am hoping that larger models will become available soon.

      Marti my friend, you can add that star back! We have that same slide in a larger size and always have. It’s sold as the medium balltip. Ariel’s slide is a longer version of our small balltip. Chicago music generally stocks them, or they are available on our site, Amazon and a variety of other places. Thanks man!

    Thanks, Danny, I just received my medium sized aged ball tip slide., it fits me perfectly compared to the small size, well deserving of a 5-star review!

    This slide, along with the Ariel Posen model, is easily the best slide I’ve ever used. You get what you pay for, and you’re paying for quality. Absolutely blown away, and the customer service is next level.
