SkinTone Leather Pick Review

SkinTone Leather Pick Review

Calfskin picks are just the same old thing new for plucked stringed instruments; pickers have utilized them for quite a long time on balalaikas, ukuleles, and even Gibson’s monstrous mandobass. Other than being a material that is easily accessible and simple to work with, cowhide has a particular preferred standpoint for players searching for a pick that consolidates a portion of the power and office of a plectrum with the warmth of fingertips on a string.

Since calfskin is gentler and more malleable than a hard plastic pick, you need to exchange some volume for warmth. In any case, warmth is the objective of SkinTone picks, which were created by David Novak for an understudy who required a hotter tone, yet experienced difficulty adjusting to fingerstyle. To give the pick somewhat more help and inflexibility, Novak utilizes a solitary layer of Lexan polycarbonate sheet sandwiched between two bits of premium steers cowhide.

Single-note lines and strummed chords were plentifully warm when played with a SkinTone, and the cowhide’s regular surface made holding the pick simple, even with sweat-soaked fingers. At first, I had a feeling that I wasn’t as agile with the thick, delicate calfskin pick, however after some play time, I felt significantly more fit exploring through tunes.

I could see SkinTone’s picks proving to be useful for players requiring a particularly warm tone for recording, a milder tone for playing in calm circumstances (like late-night hone when the family is resting), or even only a difference in pace for their ears.
