SLIDES. A 1/2" polished aluminium slide is included with each diddley bow. You will probably want to experiment with different items to find
the one that suits you best. If you prefer a slide that fits over your finger many folks use "Sears" deep well sockets from their tool department
and find the one that fits over their finger snugly. Hard metals and glass make the loudest sounds. Using pocket knives over the strings or the glass necks of bottles have created styles known as " Jackknife " and " Bottleneck " blues.
STRINGSYou can use regular guitar stringsand experiment with differentgauges to create different tones. Strings we include with the Diddley Boware 18 gauge solid steel.
The "Altoids" tin resonates a nice metal sound for the blues but you may want to experiment with other items to create that
personal sound. We have tried cookie cutters, sink drains, glass bottles, sardine can and various lids and tins. You will soon find a favorite!
