Every guitarist has unique dimensions, dynamics, and preferences that dictate the manner we play our instrument. While there are infinite ways to hold a guitar, there has only been a “one size fits all” design to guitar picks. And an action that is rarely considered is the manner of how the pick actually contacts the strings: the potent balance of “bite & release.”
As the guitar neck becomes angled, a flat pick tends to strike ACROSS the strings… and less UPON them. It is in this effect that layers of amazing tones and textures are hidden; where the intricate characteristics of your guitar, strings, pickups, amp, and pedals are not fully revealed. On the same course, picking technique can be diminished when string contact is poor or hand contortion becomes necessary… creating tension or wasted energy. As guitar angles and positioning should be dictated by pure feel and comfort, we can now utilize a pick design that channels our own unique delivery. Welcome to Talon.
The unique design of the Talon delivers 4 dynamic models, armed with an increasingly angled picking tip extending from a flowing thumb contour. Each progressive angle of the Talon tip disperses more direct contact energy (“bite”) upon the string, which limits the amount of skip across the string (“release”). Now you are able to reign in YOUR ideal amount of attack and response. As you ascend through each model, you will hear and feel how the design will reveal new tones, tighten sonics, and unleash picking techniques. Easily rotate 90˚ to ever access the traditional flat pick for that open strumming feel and tone. Couple the Talon design with 3 custom blends of topflight materials… and you now have an array of pathways to deliver your finest sound.
