Mr. B's was begun in 2005 as Brenton Sadreameli was making some slides for his own use. After experimenting with nearly a dozen types of metal, ceramic, porcelain and other materials, Brenton quickly discovered that the glass used to make wine bottles produced a clearly superior slide. Although using the neck of a wine bottle for a slide is an old idea (the first guitar slides were bottlenecks and nearly all of the Delta Blues greats used them), Brenton saw plenty of room for improvement on the original guitar slide. Mr. B's now offers bottlenecks in four finish types to meet every slide player's preference.
