Taylor Ebony guitar slides offer you an intriguing audio alternative, especially when you compare them to their more common glass and metal counterparts. They help to create a detailed, warm and nuanced slide tone (which is also far softer), providing you with an interesting sonic addition to your guitar arsenal. A natural dampening effect – something that is a common characteristic of the wood – leads to even more creative options when you sit down to play.
Every slide is crafted from real West African ebony that is carefully sourced at the Taylor mill in Cameroon. The decision to use a section of the wood (which can’t be used for their guitars) was made as part of the brands commitment to help move Ebony towards becoming a truly sustainable material. Any proceeds generated by sales of the slides then go right back into replanting and other schemes introduced by the company, each of which aims to benefit the environment. This direction made by Taylor increases Ebony’s value as a resource, in turn improving the health of ecosystems and building more long-term business practices.
