How do I know which size of slide ring to order?

Here's some information on sizing that I hope will help you make your decision.  

I recommend to my customers to trust their gut instinct when it comes to ordering the correct size.

If you would prefer to measure your finger to find out which slide to order, please refer to the below instructions.  

1) take a piece of string, thread, or dental floss and wrap it around the middle segment of your middle finger  

2) stretch out the piece of string and measure how long it is.  This will give you the circumference of the middle segment of your middle finger.

3) Refer to the chart below to pick the size which is best for your finger.  


Smaller than 2 1/4 inches (57mm) 


Between 2 1/4 inch (57mm) and 2 5/8 inch (66mm)


Larger than 2 5/8 inches (66mm)

A new style of slide guitar!

Traditional slides are tubes that cover your pinky or ring finger. This forces you to adapt to playing with 3 fingers which can take a long time to master. The Black Mountain Slide Ring lets you play slide guitar whenever you want to without sacrificing the use of your pinky or ring finger!

Thanks to this innovative slide ring, you can play four-finger chords, four-finger scales, bar with your pinky and ring finger, but still have the option to slide whenever you want to!

Instructions inside the slide packaging show you how best to use the slide, also there is a link to an online instruction video. The best and most recommendded use of the slide on the middle segment of their middle finger.

The spring-fit design assures comfort and stability. Plus, the added mass of the design – over 50 grams of high quality steel – means that you get the tone of a full-sized slide packed into the versatility of a slide ring.

If you’re a beginner, the Black Mountain Slide Ring is the perfect first slide. If you’re a pro, the Black Mountain Slide Ring is an essential addition to your tool chest and will unlock a myriad of creative possibilities.

The traditions of slide guitar are beautiful and expressive because they explore the spaces between the notes and allow guitar players to break out of the confines of the frets. With the Black Mountain Slide Ring, you can journey freely between these worlds, without being locked into either style. You can switch between regular guitar and slide guitar whenever you feel the urge!
