Item Description

Traditional musicians in Northern India originally fashioned picks from coconut shell to play the Sarod, a multi-stringed fretless relative of the sitar and the rebab. In later years, the picks have been reduced in size and many players of the modern sarod have abandoned the coconut picks in favor of a new, more compact, pick made from ebony or rosewood. European and American musicians traveling in India in the sizties brought these unique picks back with them and soon guitarists were discovering that they made superb picks for jazz! The tone that they produced was full and rich and immeasurably stronger than that produced by a celluloid, nylon--or even a tortoise-shell pick. The exciting new SAROD Picks from John Pearse« are handmade for us in India by craftemen who are expert in the fashioning of exotic woods. One side has a rounded depression for your thumb while the other has a curve just perfect for your index finger to hold the pick snugly and securely. For the moment, they are made for Right Handed Players. Just hold one of the these painstakingly carved picks in your hand and hear for yourself the magic that has been concealed within your guitar.

not bad
it's a large pick so not good with fast picking but it's not bad. Use with chords.

A good chance to try wooden picks
I get a guitar pick made from rosewood. Pick is made from a very pleasant and strong material. I love him, but I think that the size and shape are very specific. That mediator is quite difficult to play fast tracks, but it's good enough for blues songs and a variety of balads.
ProsGood material Low price for wooden picks
ConsBig size

Rosewood and ebony
In use both on my acoustic bass. Tone is amazing, and for the thickness, it is the most comfortable pick I have used. One or the other is always on my person.

Good pick, some cons
This pick was very comfortable in my fingers. However, i found the tone of the guitar to be very tinny. This was solved by adjusting the eq of the guitar, however I still did not particularly like the sound when it was not run through a system. This was my first high end pick, and it was just a little thick for my liking.
ProsComfortable
ConsWorn easily Sound

Super comfortable!
When it comes to picks, I swear by the Dunlop Tortex .88. With that said, this one gives it a run for my money. It is worth noting that I haven't tried out all the different models of these picks, but only the "Buffalo Horn" one. What I especially like about it, is that it has a sort of track on the back-side for your index finger. The pick just feels nice and solid, making for a comfortable playing experience. I've noticed some mild wear on this pick after a few weeks use, this is something that could be bettered on future makes!
ProsSolid, heavy feel. Good grip. Lots of attack.
ConsCould be a bit more durable.

Coconut Shell
This is my first higher end pick and I have to say this is the best pick I own. You can definitely tell a tonal difference with this pick compared to a plastic pick. Wether you are playing acoustic or electric, you do get a full and rich tone with this pick. The pick is on the thicker side but because it has the dimple on one side it is very comfortable to hold and has the added bonus of not slipping out of your fingers while playing like a lot of the plastic picks do.

Buffalo Horn
Just the best pick I've come across, for both comfort and tone. Both on electric and acoustic they're the pick of choice for me I've tried all kinds of high end picks and this takes the cake
