This is pick number 06 in Øks Custom Shop Collection, a series of one-off picks exclusive to Heavy Repping!
The shapes, thickness and material combinations differs from the standard picks in my repertoire.
They are hand crafted with care and attention to detail.
The «Natura» plectrum is the first of its kind. This unique pick is made out of castor oil, epoxides, polymers and color pigments. The finish is sealed with carnauba plat wax and is and sealed with a hydrophobic coating. The matte stone-like texture is achieved by kneading the mixed compound and colors in my hands. The swirls are made using a hand technique i’ve developed under my kitchen sink. I wanted the shape to feel natural, and is therefore made completely free hand with no measuring tools. The bevels are filed with diamond files at last.
Make no mistake, it may look fragile esthetically, but is a seriously strong little guy that can easely withstand up to 6nm of brute force and freezing or hot temperatures. It is also 100% waterproof and will not degrade with sweat.
The pick has a very mellow tone. They sound very identical to my finger picking.
Thickness: 5mm, late taper, rounded easyglide tip
