Does anyone know a good place to order a
Bullet nose tone bar?
Also, glass vs. stainless recommendations would be great.
I will be using it on a lap steel.
Had a wrist fusion a few years back and I believe that squeezing the small radius bar might be contributing to the pain I am experiencing.
Thank you, Bob

You're about 2 hours from Toronto; when is your next trip down there? Stop in at 12th Fret; they have plenty of nice instruments (I've bought from them online) and should have bars to try out.

PS- I use a stainless bullet for lap and console steel. Because of the lack of contours, it takes a different kind of squeezing to use; that may be harder or easier with your wrist.

Polymer bars like the Ezzee-slide or Clinesmith are very grip friendly and comfortable. Good luck.

I have found a glass one that I think will do the job.
It is called "Diamond bottle neck" if anyone is interested. Bob
