What some of our customers are saying about Mr. B's Authentic Bottleneck Slides:
“All I can say is WOW!!! The tone and sustain are absolutely stupendous! The size and the weight are perfect. You are a true artist. I love them! My favorite so far is the Deluxe - it’s sounds so sweet and is smooth as silk to use. It’s truly a pleasure to find someone who takes the time to talk to their customers and who produces a product that is everything it’s supposed to be and more. i will recommend your slides to everyone I know! I threw out my coricidin bottle and dunlop last night - won’t be needing them anymore! Again - thanks so much!!!!!”

“You have exactly what I have been searching in vain for.”
- Joe Bacal
“Clarity, tone, sustain all unmatched. I own Diamond, Blue Moon, a half dozen others, but yours tops them all - the best glass slide I now own.”
-Mark Dolan San Jose, CA
“I received my two slides and they are perfect and I am not easily pleased. The brown one sounds great with my resonator and fits just right. Thanks for your attention to detail and working with me to make my custom glass slides.”
-Chuck Smith Alta Loma, CA
“TOP NOTCH workmanship and tone. Fits Perfect. I’ll never buy any other slide. Sound great on my National RadioTone. Thanks again!”
-Cary Sagady Philadelphia, PA
“...The fit is excellent, and the finish is impeccable! I applaud your attention to the subtle details that make this slide much more than just a very good tool. It feels like an extension of your hand, and seems to deepen your connection with your instrument as you play. And this one really draws out a warm & sweet tone! Beautifully executed! Thanks, Brenton, for that personal touch, and for all that you did to custom craft a truly unique and special bottleneck slide. “Mr. B.” - We’ll do business again!”
-Joe Hayes Wake Forest, NC
“I just received the slide. It fits my pinky PERFECT. It is just SO comfortable ... I had no idea having the right sized slide is that important on top of a great sounding one. Sounds darker than the one I was using which I dig and SO smooth and buttery... I just wanna say thanks SO much for making one for me, I can’t be happier !!”
-Masaru Takahashi South Portland, ME
“I was lucky enough to get a ”hands-on” tour of what it takes to create these AWESOME custom slides. No wonder Mr.B’s slides are quickly becoming the prefered slide for many players! Your passion for what you do is rarely seen!”
-Bryan Jordan Columbia, SC
“I recently bought one of your dark green slides at the NAMM show in Nashville. The thing is exactly what I have been after since I started playing slide guitar. It has much better sustain, volume, and tone than any pyrex slide Ive used. I recommend these to everybody looking for a slide that comes into the music shop that I work at. Keep up the good work, you make the best slides I have found anywhere.”
“Just wanted you to know I got the slide and just stopped playing with it after about 4 hours. This is, by far, the best bottleneck slide I have ever had the privledge to own and I v’e been playing for 30+ years. I truly thank you and I will definitely spread the word up here.”
-Warren Seidberg Rochester, NY
"Received my slide last Friday. I love it! It's my favorite slide now. It feels like it becomes part of your finger when you put it on. Great tone too! Thanks so much for you attention to this. But now I want to order another one! I'll be placing another order on your website soon. Long live Mr. B's! Thanks again."
-Dave McEowen Sherman Oaks, CA
"I got time over the weekend to try out the slides. They're great! They have the sound that I've been searching to find for years! They fit fine, too. No need for any changes. Thanks for making the slides - they were worth the wait."
-Norm Le Donne West Chester, PA
"What a great product - it fits like an absolute glove, and the weight is perfect. I never would have believed something as simple as a glass slide would get me so excited, but this is no ordinary slide. Thank you for your craftsmanship and excellent service. I'll be back for more!"
-Tom Watterson Austin, TX
"I just received my slides and they fit like a glove. Above all , they sound just as you promised: absolutely great. Especially on my accoustic and my dobro. Absolutely love them. I can't wait to get to the rehearsle room with the rest of the gang to bring the slides to the definitive test.
Also thanks for the cool stickers that you enclosed in the package; look real nice on my guitar case.
Thanks for taking good care of my order !"
-Jürgen Palmkoek Belgium
"Guys, I love the slide you sent me. It fits like a glove(better maybe), has great tone. I use for both acoustic and electric. I have found that my Coricidan bottle doesn\'t have the volume I need for acoustic, but the Mr. B's bottleneck certainly fills the bill. "
"Wow -- this is truly one of the best slides I've ever used! I'm sold as this is a great product!"
-Blake Billings Memphis, TN
"Great slide, gives me much more control. Try one."
- Ron Lister Ontario, Canada
"The West Coast needs your product out here. You are the first I have seen that takes this seriously.
Most dedicated or touring musicians would want a number of these for back ups."
- Gary Lynch Creston, CA
"What a nice slide. How can I get another? ...Nothing has ever fit my finger like your product, and on the action of my travel axe it was about perfect.
I'd like to try more of your product...very impressed so far.."
- Kevin Atlanta, GA
"It was expensive... but now I'm addicted to slide guitar. I've had just about every slide you can think of, and never could 'get it'... this slide has opened up my world. I was fortunate enough to find my dealer's display full of *vastly* different bottlenecks... this may be perhaps your biggest secret to success (make your dealers stay stocked!) Thanks for creating a super product that absolutely fills a premium need."
- Steve Cowell Austin, TX
"I only recently started playing guitar again and I never even THOUGHT of trying out slide guitar. I bought a $5.00 Pyrex slide and it sounded awful. I'm still a beginning player, but I tried out my new bottleneck slide and I was actually making tunes with it. I need a LOT of practice still, but I can make the slide work and actually sound good. The main reason that I like your guitar slides so much is that they are REAL. They are not mass-produced pyrex things for 5 bucks a pop. You actually took the time to pick out the bottles, machine them, and then sign and number them by hand. You don't see that kind of craftsmanship too much nowadays. For what it's worth, anyone that I meet who is interested in playing slide guitar I will make sure to send your way.
Keep up the good work."
- Michael J. Holmes Savannah, GA
I'm finally leaving Guitar Center so I want my first purchase as a civilian musician to be a slide from Mr. B himself.
