Announcing a new instrument, the 3-String MiniSlide. This is a little Lap Steel-type instrument, that you play on your lap or on a table. A metal slide bar is held against the strings, and slides from note to note , like a Lap Steel or Dobro. There are no frets, but there is a “fingerboard” underneath the strings with lines to indicate the positions of the 12 notes of a chromatic scale.
• It has only three strings (tuned DAD). • It is an electric instrument, but we added a small oval soundbox so it can be played quietly without plugging in. • The note position lines are longer to indicate a D major Scale (like the Strumstick) and shorter for the rest of the chromatic scale. • For the benefit of the beginner, it is biased towards one key (D), but it is still a fully chromatic instrument.
The unique features of the MiniSlide offer a more gentle learning curve, and quicker access to slide sounds for beginners to the instrument.
Available with Maple, Sapele, or Walnut body, with contrasting fingerboard and soundboard. Prices are $580 with slotted note lines, $730 with Abalone inlay lines
