Graph Tech Guitar Labs has introduced a TUSQ line of picks, made from the same man-made ivory used in its top selling saddles, bridge pins, and nuts. "Guitarists understand that every component of a guitar that is chosen brings out certain characteristics, from the wood, to the frets, to the nuts and saddles and the strings, creating their sound and their tone. Picks are an important link in the tone and how you actually play," said Dave Dunwoodie, President, Graph Tech. "There are not a lot of times something comes along in a pick that is truly different, but this is one of those times. The tone, the feel, stiffness, the weight, the thinness, the articulation is unlike anything out on the market now. It is truly something you just have to try."
Harmonically rich, lightweight and durable, TUSQ picks generate great tone and extend the subtle nuances in picking styles and attack. "We’ve had guitar manufacturers, artists and fans ask us for years when we would design and produce a TUSQ pick," said Dunwoodie. "Even with the number of large R&D projects happening at the Graph Tech, we knew this was something that was not only logical
in the evolution and development of our brand, but more importantly, something that our customers really wanted to see happen."
The initial launch of TUSQ picks have three flexes available and available in packs of 6 with more sizes to come.
