    Yep, $4.60...each!
    Gotta be a way to improvise!
    Any ideas? Don't tell me to go steal them off a demo at Guitar Center.

    I have not tried this, but I have considered using heat shrink tubing. Could even wrap the end of the slider with some tape or tape backed foam first to give it a little more girth, then use the heat shrink over that.

    $4.60 each?
    Damn, that's nuts
    The shrink sleeving idea sounds like your best bet so far.

    Do you have a larger chain hardware store like Lowes or Home Depot nearby?
    Go there and go hunting.

    Christ! @ 4.60 each, you might as well find a used or broken GE-7 on ebay & part it out if the shrink tubing (good idea btw) doesn't work out.
