Ribboned African Mahogany Guitar Pick
Ribboned African Mahogany, Khaya Ivorensis
This wood varies from a light to deep reddish-brown color with iridescent honey colored stripes and has moderately coarse texture with interlocking grain. African mahogany is harvested from the western or Ivory Coast of Africa and is distributed worldwide. It is commonly found in high end guitars built by a multitude of fine manufacturers.
Sound and Feel:
Direct, transparent, bright and warm sound. Provides a faster, more precise attack than regular picks. Finished with Danish Oil, which dampens usually more present highs from the woods slightly, so the sound is slightly closer to usual picks than totally untreated wood or the open-pore finished picks.
Similar to a .75mm pick, which is considered a medium gauge pick. At this thickness it's ideal for flatpicking, soloing, and strumming.
