Timber Tones Bone Tones BO1 Buffalo Bone, Bone Tones Picks are made of Buffalo Horn and Bone, both by-products of the food industry. The shape of these picks was developed in view of playing comfort, grip and sound improvement. Buffalo Horn sounds very similar to Tortoise Shell and therefore became more and more popular. Buffalo Bone is very durable and sounds bright. Ideal for electric guitars. 1 piece in Hang Bag
I bought this pick to try out how a bone/wooden pick makes a difference. Obviously, each material has its own characteristic, though one may argue how dramatically that characteristic makes a difference regarding tone or playing style/comfort.
I can say it's pretty different than a generic plastic pick. Due to its thickness and stiffness, in my opinion, it gives a brighter tone which comes with more picking noise. It might be useful while playing power cords or some heavy rhythms. However, I don't find this or any similar pick useful without many hours of practice.
Overall, I think my main problem with this pick is its thickness which is 3mm I believe. If it would be thinner with the same aspects it could be an amazing pick.
What I use it for: guitar soloing, because it has an amazing full tone, not making harsh, treble-y sounds and rock bass guitar, because it goes fast AND it has a very full tone, giving me the fundamenals of the bass sound.
What I don't use it for: greek folk guitar, because it hits upon the wood and makes a big, ugly noise, and chord strumming because it sticks a little bit along the way.
All in all a very good tone, very good durability. The only thing that I don't like very much is that it sometimes slips through my hand, as, since it is a fat pick, I can't have a very good grip on it. But that's just me, because I've difficulties with pick holding all of my life.
