The Lindberg resistance balancer does a similar job.

My instructor has one soldered on his Shires tenor slide.  Out of curiosity, I've got one of these on the way - comes tomorrow.  From what I've read it seems to "make the most difference" on light slides, which is what I've got on my bass. I'll be interested to see if makes any difference.

Going back to the D/W booster.  I found that playing though the harmonic series with the slide locked, and the Booster in place, then feeling up and down the outer slide there was a less vibration at the "anti node" points, even on a heavy slide.

With ever lighter instruments, it seems that we are trying to get back to some of the virtues of heavier ones?

I was thinking about the irony in adding weight to a slide that I liked because it's lightweight.  However, with the mass concentrated at the bow end I seem to like it.  However, it's still lighter than my standard B62 outer, which is 0.6 lbs.  The nickel lightweight slide with the brace clocks in just under that at 0.57 lbs.

I really felt a really noticeable difference on my Bach .525 LT slide. Ditto 88H LT. Didnít really feel much on regular weight Yamaha slides.
