    I use a "rusty" guitar slide because it sounds louder, clearer and better than a regular guitar slide. But will it break the strings?

    Yes...

    I only play on rusty gear too.

    In fact I always dip new equipment in a saltwater solution and let it dry outside.

    I like the rusty tone quality my gear gets from that treatment.

    I chose the first option myself. It seemed more sensible than the second.

    @bass bass bass - Since you are a new member, I'll let you know this is a great place to get info. It can also be a haven for sarcasm. Unfortunately, the term you used "guitar slider" isn't an accurate term for a guitar/bass part. So we really don't know what you are referencing. If you can add any information as to what a "guitar slider" is, I'm sure plenty of people will chime in with opinions as to whether a rusty one is better or not.

    Otherwise, members think you are trolling them, and will be very sarcastic.

    Good luck!

  14. Try hitting it with some Scotchbrite to take the roughness down a bit

    Depends how the rust got there in the first place.

    Sweat? Humidity? Beers?

    This all impacts tone.

    The English language is so ambiguous. Do you mean a slider for a rusty guitar or a rusty slider for a guitar?
    Could they both be rusty?
    You should really take better care of your gear.

    Any reasonable amount of use of a "rusty" guitar slide would quickly render it "un-rusty".
