Hi folks,

We're proud to offer a range of all-glass 'rail-style' tone bars to compliment our heavy crystal glass bullet bars. These are modeled on the 'Ben Harper' bar, but if you require another bar shape / style created in our specialty glass we'll try our best to accommodate you.

We currently offer Amber or deep Cobalt Blue, but other glass colors can be made available upon request. For more information please contact us via our website address below.

Many thanks!

Ian McWee (www.diamondbottlenecks.com)

I did not see these on the website. Is there one with a bullet nose, like a SP1?

Hi Terry,

Unfortunately as there are so many different tone-bars commercially available worldwide we can't keep a full set of bars for reference ~ but if you have a favorite bar you'd like to have copied in glass please feel free to send it over to us and we can supply a glass bar matching your piece exactly Smile

Thanks Terry ~ hope to hear from you!

PM sent sent by SGF page. Yeah, a SP1 style, in glass. That would be killer.

Hi Art,

No problem at all and many thanks indeed ~ is it the first bar (Ben Harper) you wish to take in glass or the Asher bar above.

Please let me know Art & I'll forward your requirements onto our glass-blowers

Best regards,

Ian (D.B's)

Thanks Rick ~ the next batch of SP1 and SP2 bars are underway at our glass-blowers studios - as soon as they arrive here in our workshop I'll drop folks waiting on these a confirmation note Smile

Thanks Terry ~ now that the players we needed to glean the necessary positive feedback from have given us the green light to move forward with our project, our glass-blowers can offer several different glass color choices in the current bar options - we're looking at building the website page to purchase these bars up 'n running a.s.a.p Smile

Thanks to all!
