Zebrawood, Microberlinia brazzavillensis
Native to Central Africa, Zebrawood is a light-brown or cream color with dark, blackish-brown streaks vaguely resembling a zebra’s stripes. Sometimes called Zebrano, the wood is strong and stiff, exhibiting a slight iridescent appearance between the vertical dark stripes.
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 1.00mm pick, which is considered a medium gauge pick. At this thickness it's ideal for flatpicking, soloing, and strumming.
