I was quite content with the picks I was using until a friend sent me a Hawk Picks TB6 to try. I instantly noticed the improvement in tone and feel. I used the pick for a while, and when I accidentally forgot to take it to my gig one evening, I was forced to return to my old picks: this was the final nail in their coffin. The picks that I’d used for YEARS now felt plain wrong – planky, harsh on the ear, and rough on the strings. I rue the years of time/tone wasted without Hawk Picks in my life.
