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.

Heavy Wall: Models #423 - 426

Our Heavy Wall Slides are a heavier weight slide that have great sustain on both electric and acoustic. They feature our unique taper built into the colored end of the slide, which grips the finger makes and adds mass. The #424 is one of our most popular slides. There are 2 different diameters available that each have 2 different lengths. We can also custom tailor the length or taper to your specifications.

The Model #423 is similar to the "shorty" Model #419, but has our thicker 4.0mm wall. The tapers on these typically have a tighter fit. They are the smallest slides we make in our Heavy Wall series (#423-426). The Heavy Wall series are a heavier weight slide that sound great with both electric and acoustic, and have a warmer tone. These slides have the thickness needed for some really good sustain, and they sound especially good with acoustic and resonator guitars.
