Gremlin Music has added Timber Tones’ range of eco-friendly guitar picks to its portfolio of products.
Timber Tones has been manufacturing luxury guitar picks, or plectrums, since 2009. In that short time they have grown their product range to a point where they now have the largest selection of natural material guitar picks anywhere on the planet.
Timber Tones utilises the tonal characteristics of natural materials to help guitarist fine tune the tone of their instrument.
“All of our materials are eco sourced, off cuts or bi-products from another industry,” explained Timber Tones. “For example our leather guitar picks for ukulele are made from off cut materials used to make guitar straps.”
The firm checks the eco status of all of its materials once a year with CITES to ensure that they are as eco-friendly as possible. Timber Tones is the only luxury guitar pick manufacturer to be sold in over 5,000 music shops, guitar shops and e-commerce sites worldwide, and the brand says it utilises its extensive experience in manufacturing processes to “ensure the very best quality at the best price”.
“Guitarists already appreciate that every element in the ‘Tone Chain’ has an impact upon the resulting sound, that’s why they purchase good quality amps, cables an strings. It can’t come as any surprise then to learn that the accessory that you use to physically interact with your guitar also has a large influence,” said Timber Tones.
“The only reason that plastic has traditionally been used to manufacture plectrums is that it is easy to injection mould into any shape at a minute cost and gain good repeatability. These picks are then sold on at enormous profit margins through the supply chain. However plastic is not only ecologically unfriendly but is also not the best material to gain the best sound form your guitar.”
