Comments about Pick Boy Vintage Pick Cellulose Tortoise-Shell (10-pack):
Pickboy Picks are premium high quality picks made in Japan. This particular model is made of Celluloid which is the original material that picks were made from since real tortoise shell became illegal to use in consumer products specially on guitar picks. This pick sounds and feels great on both Acoustic and Electric guitars. Great tone! Since this pick has a more pointed/sharper tip than the standard celluloid picks from other brands, it offers brighter, more articulated tones. Notes are clearer specially when playing solos. And I've also noticed that this pick is a bit more harmonically rich compared to a standard celluloid pick in the same thickness ( 1.0 mm ). The only downside is that it is very expensive! It comes in a pack of ten. But I guess you get what you pay for. They are very consistent, premium high quality material. Tone and feel are superb.
