While in use, the brass slide is a hefty,
no-compromise tool that features unsurpassed tone and control.
When rotated behind the hand (which takes less than a second)
it leaves all the fingers free for unencumbered, conventional
fretting. It works so well because of the unique 2-piece design:
the Delrin "ring" section remains in place on the finger as
the brass "sleeve" section is rotated with the thumb. The
move is done with one hand, so quickly that it doesn't interrupt
a solo, and any player can master it with very little practice.
The revolutionary advantage of the AXYS reversible guitar
slide is immediatly apparent to anyone who plays slide guitar!
We suggest using the Axys on your RING FINGER.
Many slide players have designated their pinky as the slide
finger, probably because with the traditional tubular slides
or bottlenecks this was the best way to gain some limited
use of the other fingers for fretting. Since the AXYS offers
such unrestricted use of all the fingers, we encourage you
to consider reassigning the slide to the ring finger or even the middle finger. Most players find this to provide
greater control and versatility. It will work just fine on
your pinky, of course, but this is a whole new ballgame now
and you don't want to overlook any good possibilities!
Each Axys is now packaged with all four ring sizes. No more guesswork, or contacting the company to swap sizes. One product, not four products — you WILL get the fit you want.
