I have a standard replica of the med bottle that Sir Duane used and I love the tone but I need the opening a bit bigger. I see that the Derek sig Dunlop is large but was wondering if anybody knew right off if it is larger than the one I have. Iím looking around to compare specs with no luck so far.

Iíve found one called the ďBlooze BottleĒ that is longer but Iím not sure on the opening. The Derek slide will be a collectible.

Itís a shame this forum is so buried within chapters, as no one comes by here much anymore.you might catch more fish in ĎAnything Goes.í A few players lurk there.

Anyhoo, after years and years of using all manner of slides, iíve ended up on the Dunlop 218 - itís pretty fat, but short, which allows for easier fretting behind the slide. Also, they are cheap so I can saturate my guitar cases with them
Bottles get, so sweaty, I always wanted to drill holes in the top.

Iím getting to like this bottle as I get better with it. I ordered the Derek slide and itís close to the 276 I think it is. Ive been playing for a good while but never slide and I am really liking it. As you stated in the other thread, itís gonna take some trial n error. I just ordered some 11-48 E Ball strings and I think that will put my guitar where Iíll want it. Thanks for the reply.

This is a good slide. I really like these bottles as a heavy wall slide is just too bulky for me. I did order a 203 but itís a standard thickness as well. I do have a thick metal slide but donít care for the tone.
