CUT THROUGH THE MIX WITH TWO EACH OF ATTAK, AMBUSH, AND BLADE.
Brings out 12-string harmonics on your 6-string acoustic guitar
Open chords become more compressed together with each note still clear
Adds a somewhat percussive effect to your tone
Cuts through reverb on electric guitars while evening out chord extensions
Brightens bass guitars without losing the low end
Provides the same brightening effect of Attak, but with more impact creating a more percussive sound
Great for blues on electric guitar giving each note purpose and evens out the volume of each note
Picking each note sounds extremely compressed on the attack
Gives bass a slap and pop sound while making each note sound bright and metallic
Thickens lower harmonics which gives it a heavier sound and big feel
Harmonically enhances midrange frequencies, which is where clarity and punch sit for guitars
Semi-flex structure allows the player to maintain their ability to sweep and tremolo pick
Pairs well with distorted and overdriven effects cutting through the mix to provide more clarity
Produces a compressed sound when picking individual notes, and can produce a “wah effect” when overdriven
Mitigates some of the muddiness of excess string resonance at lower range frequencies
“Takes you to creative places you might not normally have traveled.” - Brian Goss
How long will the picks last?
The founders have been playing regularly with the same Attak and Ambush picks for the last 10 months and Blade pick for the last 5 months to test this and have not experienced any degradation in performance. A small amount of wear as you break in the pick is to be expected.
Will the picks damage my strings?
Normal playing with our picks should not lead to string breakage. Any pick that is stiff enough can break your strings if you play hard enough or in a way that will pull the strings excessively, Attak Piks included. With Attak Piks it is important to note that the raised structures on the tips of the picks are designed to give their effect without creating excessive drag that could lead to string breakage. Even more aggressive playing should not cause string breakage. Still, playing in non-standard ways that excessively pull on the strings can be a problem.
What size are these picks?
2.0mm Tip Structure
I have to say I was surprised and impressed with the tone difference these made. A definate 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.

My verdict on these picks is they really do sound great. Chords become bright and bold and jump out. Definitely worth the money. Amazing innovation where I’d never expect to find it.
