Here is the hand-made Gidgee Guitar slide.
One would think that wood could not produce a reasonable slide sound, but owing to the extreme density of gidgee, the result is quite pleasing.
This slide has far less string-clatter on the wound strings, is light-wieght and very comfortable on the hand.
The resulting sound has less sustain than glass or brass slides but produces an effective "pre-compressed" sound that will be suitable for many slide styles.
This makes it ideal for high-gain playing where high frequencies and excessive feedback can be a problem.
The Gidge is hand made in rare wood. Only so many of these can be made - stocks will apear here as they become available.
Over time we will add some demo clips to compare the sound of the Gidge to traditional slides. To begin - Here is Graham Norton demonstrating a gidgee slide:
