Tuning slides and leadpipes are available in 4 different types of material; each with a different tonal quality:
Yellow Brass – The standard of the industry. Our yellow brass slides will provide an enhanced core and overtones over your stock slide or leadpipe.
Bronze – Contains a higher copper content. Our bronze slides create a very warm and rich sound with very broad overtones. The bronze leadpipes will add a little darker tone as well.
Nickel Silver – Our Nickel slides create a purer, more fundamental sound with more core and less overtones…many customers call this more of a commercial or lead sound. Very fast responding as well. Nickel leadpipes will be much brighter sounding.
PLEASE NOTE: The above descriptions are to used as a guide only…the terms “brighter, darker, warmer etc.” are very relative terms; what one player considers bright may not be considered bright by someone else
