I picked up a few new toys recently and thought I'd take the time to share a few cool things with you guys...
A long time ago now I bought a Shubb C1 capo and love it...it is so far the only capo I've ever used that I can put on and take off w/o having to tweak the guitars tuning...a huge deal if you're on stage!!!
So, I've been using my Esquire more and more lately and it has a 7.25 radius...the Shubb capo is a little flat for that (it has a hard time clamping down on the E strings) so I picked up a Shubb for 7.25 inch radius (model C4) necks and I am loving it!!!
It's perfect for vintage radius neck Fender guitars!
I also picked up a few new slides recently one of which is a Silica Sound Slide...they come in 2 lengths and 2 diameters and 2 thicknesses for a total of 8 different slides. They are hand blown glass and the tips are tapered going to the inside which adds mass at the end for sustain and it also helps in doing a nice wide, human voice like vibrato plus it also grips the tip of your finger quite nicely so the slide stays put!
They are super cool slides and I dig 'em!
As an added bonus they look cool too!
