Precision oriented, they are praised by both Jazzmen and Heavy Metal shredders alike. Do not forget: speed is a byproduct of precision. Jazz Tones feature the allimportant sharp chamfered tip, delivering a quicker and more accurate string release, essential for playing complex melody lines. Oh, and of course, Bone and Horn never wear off.

Shape: ‘Classic’ Size: Length = Width = Thickness =

37.0mm 32.0mm 3.0mm

Materials: Synthetic Felt Natural Wool Felt Description: Timber Tones answer to the specific needs of ukulele players. The plectrums are manufactured from Natural Wool Felt, which is soft and ideal for strumming and Synthetic Felt, which is harder and used for picking the ukulele strings. These picks are quite thick and as such, can endure a lot more use than your average pick.

These different options make the Leather Tones the perfect tool to fine tune the sound of your ukulele and craft your own style of playing

They are made from materials with various levels of hardness and thus tones. The three large tips allow for quite precise picking, whereas the large, convex edges allow for heavy strumming work. The symmetry of the shape allows the user to hold however he/she desires, while using the central hole as a gripping point. Star Tones picks are ideal for bass guitar.

32.4mm 26.4mm 4.0mm

31.0mm 24.5mm 3.5mm

Groovy Tones are sculpted by hand one at a time with the strictest of quality controls. The tip has been carefully designed to increase the plectrum-string contact area, securing the very best tone Timber can give you.

They are hand sculpted to give the best natural finish to their carefully engineered shape, making them high profile items while keeping a pure, simple line. Their curved tip creates additional surface contact between the string and the plectrum, and thus greater depth of tone.

Of course, Heart Tones are also heart shaped. They make the perfect gift for the guitarist in your life!

19


Shape: ‘Classic’ Size: Length = 30.0mm Width = 25.7mm Thickness = 3.0mm Materials: Ebony Rosewood Padauk Haldu Description: Zones tones are made of a tip zone sandwiched between two strip zones, themselves surrounded by side body zones.

22


Shape: ‘Groove’ Size: Length = Width = Thickness =

29.4mm 24.6mm 4.0mm

They are 3mm shorter in both length and width, and have an even more pronounced curved tip. Where Groove Tones were made for comfort and tone research, Groove Tones Mini are made for accuracy and fluidity.

23
