This earthy, dense sound is something Devin has been wanting out of a pick for years, now you can try it too!
EarthTone is available in packs of 5 or 25.
Material: Devin's Blend (Nylon Mix)
Dimensions: W-34mm, H-32mm, 1mm gauge (+0.2mm raised grip)
I really put these picks through their paces over the weekend. I tried them on both electric and acoustic guitars. I typically use red or orange Tortex 3 picks so this is definitely a thicker pick. There was a bit of a physical learning curve as I tried them out with logo up logo down, shark tip (my name) and the standard tip. It felt very comfortable I could get a great grip and maintain it. These are thick but I found I they were very smooth across the stings. As expected the shark tip has more bite but it is a deceptively subtle tone variance. The notes felt more alive I guess, it is sort of like picking the same note several times with each pick movement but it only sounds the note that you want like 'eeeeeE' like some crazy micro flamenco attack. But with a quick spin in my grip and I had access to the standard tones like a toggle switch for my pick; pretty rad. These worked so well on my acoustic as well, switching from strumming to single notes in a smooth transition and I could use the shark tip to really get my scales to really cut through especially when switching between the two tips. I put about 7 hours on these and feel I have just started to tap into all the creativity these picks will unlock. These are truly something new for my tone arsenal. I just want to stay home from work and play guitar all day, well more than usual.
