Flamed Maple/Walnut Guitar Pick

$8.00

A combination of the two of our most beautiful options.  Our combination picks include a contrasting stripe down the middle of the pick.

Flamed Maple (Curly Maple, Ripple Maple, Fiddleback, Tiger Stripe Maple), Acer Saccharum
Flamed maple is a variety of sugar maple in which the growth of the wood fibers is distorted in an undulating chatoyant pattern producing wavy lines known as "flames."  This effect is often mistakenly said to be part of the grain of the wood but is more accurately called "figure," as the distortion is perpendicular to the grain direction.
Walnut, Juglans Nigra
Walnut is light brown to dark chocolate brown, occasionally with a purplish cast and darker streaks.  Walnut develops a rich patina that grows more lustrous with age.  The wood is generally straight grained but some times displays wavy or curly grain patterns. 

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 .75mm pick, which is considered a medium gauge pick.  At this thickness it's ideal for flatpicking, soloing, and strumming.
