Rocky Mountain Slide Company Introduces Ouray Astro Dog Ceramic Slide

The Ouray Astro Dog is a bullet nosed rail style bar with a cut back, for a lower hand profile.

Salida, CO (June 28, 2011) -- The Rocky Mountain Slide Company has unveiled the new Ouray (pronounced "U-Ray") Astro Dog slide, the newest in the company's "Custom House" line of products. The Ouray Astro Dog is a bullet nosed rail style bar with a cut back, for a lower hand profile. The new ceramic tone bare was co-designed by Will Craven from the band Ten Toes Up.

Its lower hand profile offers extra comfort and control for the player. Made of glass-glazed ceramic, the Ouray is lightweight for extremely fast action, yet it offers strong tonality on a variety of acoustic and electrified instruments. The Ouray Astro Dog is priced at $39.99 online, $68.99 retail.
