Thalia Magnesium Slides are made via a collaboration with MagSlide, makers of fine magnesium slides. We were planning to design our own slide from scratch when we came across the father & son team at MagSlide. We loved their design and story so much that we decided to partner with them to create a new Thalia version which includes an exotic wood & shell inlay. We think you will love these slides as much as we do!

Our MAGNESIUM slides are made by MagSlide and sent to our California studio where we carefully inspect each slide for quality and then install fine wood and shell inlays to order.
WARM TONE | GREAT SUSTAIN | CONTOURED DESIGN
light weight, good sustain, good fit on the finger, good looking
This is an absolutely beautiful slide. It is very light, and responsive, and has a nice tone (quite different from ceramic or glass). I love it!
I have purchased many items from Thalia and they don’t disappoint. From a practical point of view, this is the lightest and most comfortable slide I have ever used. The scalloped edge is just perfect for my fingers. The sound is on the warm side which is probably due to the magnesium and not a bad thing. I normally use a ceramic slide which is a bit brighter and louder, but the Thalia slide provides a different character, which I like. The Mexican Greenheart and AAA Curly Hawaiian Koa are beautiful. Check out my photos.
I bought one of these for a friend and one for myself too. As you would expect the quality is great and well worth the wait (I'm in the uk).
My friend loves it and much prefers it to his original slide.
I'm new to playing with a slide but it feels v comfortable to play with
