WORKSHOP

 The Gidge

 

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:
