African Padauk Guitar Pick

$8.00

African Padauk, Pterocarpus Soyauxii

Also known as Vermillion, African Padauk heartwood is vivid blood red, toning down to a dark purple-brown with red streaks upon exposure.  Due to its high strength, durability and outstanding stability, this wood is ideal for high-class joinery, furniture and cabinetmaking.

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. 

Stiffness Profile:

Similar to a 1.00mm pick, which is considered a heavy gauge pick.  At this thickness it's ideal for flatpicking, soloing, and strumming.
