THE Hindustani Slide - Debhashish's Thermo-Cryonic tone bar
The master's signature tone bar. Carved from an ingot of highest quality 440 stainless steel, each bar is heat treated to 60 Rockwell hardness before being cryogenically frozen to -300 degrees to remove all construction stresses.
The sustain will send chills up your back. Just like Debhashish's music.
Debashish Bhattacharya's original slide was a hunk of rough steel. Upon visiting the staff at the John Pearse Company in Pennsylvania, they copied the shape and cast it in this new Thermo-Cryonic version. It is made to play with the point of the bar rather than the standard "laying on it's side" usage of the other bars so it is 5/8:" in diameter and 2-1/2 inches long.
I send each one inside a beautiful satchel.
