Harnessing modern glassblowing technology for you to create brilliant music with the “Sound of Glass”.

Through creative innovation & quality craftsmanship, we strive to produce outstanding glass guitar slides and picks that compliment your sound and style. Silica Sound is the original handmade glass guitar slide made with a tapered fit, since 2003. Handcrafted in California, U.S.A.

Silica Sound glass guitar slides are handmade with a thickened end to promote a unique grip on the tip of your finger, as well as added mass for better sustain. They are unlike any other glass guitar slide in the way they feel, sound and look.

Brass N' Glass Tone Bars

Our Brass N' Glass Tone Bars have a solid brass core with a handblown glass exterior. Glass tones and the weight of brass. The glass exterior produces less metallic overtones, and makes the bar a slightly lighter weight than full metal bars.

Available in 1.0" and 3/4" diameters. Between our 3 different models, you will be able to find a tone bar that works great with your lap steel, dobro, 10-string pedal steel, 12-string pedal steel.

Testimonial

"The #113 bar slide is an outstanding blend of glass and mass. You get all the rich harmonic content that glass has to offer. But, with the brass core, you get some really nice sustain - a sustain that's usually only available from metal slides. Great tool for tone!"

-Dan Lebowitz, Guitarist of ALO

The Brass Nʼ Glass tone bar is specially handcrafted with a unique & completely nontoxic bond between the glass & brass. These slides are very durable, but, care should be taken to prevent breakage.

AVOID: excessive heating or cooling, prolonged direct sunlight, or rapid changes in temperature. Heat and quick temperature changes can create stresses within the slide. If you think it got too hot or cold, wrap it up with a towel to insulate the slide to slow the temperature change. This will help reduce stresses in the slide.
