You may be looking at this site, wondering why on Earth one would buy a
guitar pick for $30 when you can get a plastic pick for a quarter? Let me tell
you, there is not only one reason, but several. Whether you play acoustic or
electric guitar, beginner or advanced, here are some reasons that every guitar
player should have at least one mammoth ivory pick in their
TuskBuffer Mammoth Ivory Guitar Picks will improve your tone
If your tone is important to you, then
you'll want to pay attention here. Due to the density of the material, Mammoth
Ivory picks produce a nice, bright, strong tone without the harshness of metal
picks, especially on acoustic guitars. Think about it...the pick is what makes
contact with your strings and really has the most direct influence on your
sound. The effect is certainly not lost on electric guitars, but electronics,
effects boxes and other controls may work to cover up the tonal effect. On the
other hand, mammoth ivory picks will allow you to do some great musical
acrobatics, making notes more pronounced and powerful, improved pinch harmonics
and a really cool sound and feel altogether.
TuskBuffer Mammoth Ivory Picks allow for a FASTER picking technique
Again, due to the density of the material and
also due to the high polish on all of our picks, TuskBuffer picks glide across
the strings with ease, with very little resistance or "grabbiness" on the
strings. Most customers immediately see the difference in the playability,
encouraging faster lead styles and pronouncing each note with greater
TuskBuffer Mammoth Ivory Picks can improve any guitar player's accuracy with the superior "Ivory
The "Ivory Grip" may be the most important feature
of TuskBuffer Mammoth Ivory Picks. They just stay put. Ivory is just slightly
absorbent, and when your fingers get sweaty after playing for a little while,
the picks actually pull themselves to your fingers as they try to suck up the
moisture, giving you ultimate control! In contrast, plastic repels moisture,
which is why they get slippery and can lead to sloppiness in your playing.
Just imagine not having to constantly compensate for the sloppiness of plastic
picks. How much better, faster, more accurate would your playing be? No more
dropping your pick under the hot stage lights, and any guitar player (beginners
included) can instantly kick their playing up a few notches with just one
TuskBuffer Mammoth Ivory Guitar Picks are an inexpensive mod for ALL of your guitars
much is greatly improved sound and playability of your guitar worth to you?
How much is a new pickup, a new bridge, a new effects pedal or even a new set
of strings? So many people sink hundreds and even thousands of dollars into
their guitars to change up their sound, when with just one TuskBuffer pick, you
can improve the tone and playability of ALL of your guitars!
Mammoth is the ONLY 100% legal AND ethical source of ivory
Mammoths are extinct, having died out approximately 10,000 years ago. The only
way to kill a mammoth these days is to hop in a time machine, dial it back
10,000 years or so and fight off saber-tooth tigers and other Ice Age fauna in
your quest for your mammoth trophy! Today, mammoth tusks are found primarily
in the Tundra of Russia and North America during the Summer thaw. In Siberia,
mammoth tusks are sometimes found sticking out of the ground after being pushed
up through the layers of earth. In Alaska, gold miners find many of the tusks
as they dig for their riches. Mammoth Ivory is certainly a finite resource,
and is becoming more difficult to acquire each year.
C'mon...it's Mammoth Ivory, and that's just plain cool!
Just think, you can be holding in your hand a
piece of the distant past, making music with part of a once living Woolly
Mammoth that last saw the light of day maybe 10,000, 25,000 or even 40,000
years ago! I feel that TuskBuffer Mammoth Ivory Guitar Picks honor these great
beasts of the past as their spirit lives on through the beauty of our picks and
