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.

More than anything, Matt Eich knows how important every little step is when it comes to handcrafting his Mule Resonator Guitars. With focus and precision, he finds inspiration in the Rust Belt and admiration from fellow musicians, like blues singer Charley Hicks. This is UNCHARTED. Features Charley Hicks on slide using his Custom Model #424 slides. Buy his albums here. And Mule Resonator guitars: http://muleresophonic.com/
