Similar to the Battle Pak, this lineup of piks is suitable for multi-instrumentalists. Attak for Rhythm guitar, Blade II for lead lines, and Ambush for the bass guitar. The key difference here is Blade II offers more rigidity and precision than its counterpart. Each pick was not designed to be exclusive to each mentioned application. They are simply more suited for them. When applied across the spectrum of stringed instruments, a whole new palette of colors can be discovered. Available in quantities of 3, 6, 9, & 12.
Brings out 12-string harmonics on your 6-string acoustic guitar. Additional benefits:
Harmonically enhances mid-range frequencies which is where clarity and punch live on guitars
Smooths out the individual string volumes on open chords with each note still clear
Allows the individual string frequencies to cut through reverb and delay effects
Adds a subtle percussive effect to your tone
Provides more mid and mid high definition to bass guitars without losing any low end
Provides the same heat as Attak, but with even more impact. Additional Benefits:
Produces a really bright, really percussive, heavy,and fuller sound
Great for blues on electric guitar giving each note purpose and space to breath
Hard picking each note produces a tight, slightly compressed sound
Gives bass guitars strings a “slap and pop” sound while making each note sound bright and defined
Thickens lower harmonics which gives it a heavier sound and a “Front of House” feel
Similar to Blade I but slightly stiffer and thicker for even more definition and a faster attack. Additional benefits:
Generates more top end with upper mids pushed forward
Increased rigidity transmits power instantly when playing harder
Produces a richer, darker sound on acoustic guitar when strumming
Lightens up muddiness in the lows and low mids
Apex design at the top of the pick features a broader shoulder and point for strumming
I have to say I was surprised and impressed with the tone difference these made. A definite enhancement to the overall sound, tone and volume played on an acoustic. I haven't tried them on an electric yet, I'm enjoying them too much on acoustic.

I just got my attak piks and I am a very happy man. I just started to learn Electric Funeral 2 days ago. It’s a very simple song but ya know when Iommi hits the 3 GBE strings at the 12th fret three times? When I did it I couldn’t for the life of me get that sound right. That was the first song I tried and I nailed that SOB, sounded just like Iommi. I am busting. Fixin to order ambush next. Thanks to all who run this wonderful company.

Blade is unlike any pick I’ve touched in my ten years as a guitarist. I like my tone to sound round with a fine point, which i’ve struggled to find in the dark tone of my les paul. I’ve used numerous effects pedals to achieve my desired sound but Blade places the tone directly in my hand. I am able to cut through my mixes while still retaining the full bodied sound I love. The ridges give the illusion of plucking the string without removing the fluidity and versatility needed when using a pick.
