Dunlop Ben Harper Signature Tone Bar

Singer-songwriter Ben Harper is more than a dab hand at lap slide guitar, and has been honoured with his own signature tone bar courtesy of Dunlop.

The company's slides are usually considerably heavier than a standard slide, so we're surprised and impressed to find that Ben's slide is considerably lighter, while still feeling very sturdy and offering plenty of zingy top end and excellent sustain.

MusicRadar Rating

4 / 5 stars
Pros

Sturdy yet light; great sounds.

Cons

Pricey.

Verdict

It may be a niche product and rather expensive, but for lap slide styles the Ben Harper Tone Bar scores highly for sustain, tone and comfort.
