TUSQ Assorted Picks 6-Pack
TUSQ Assorted Picks 6-Pack
The 6 pcs. pack of TUSQ Assorted picks.
Mix tones and mixed gauges to try a little bit of everything.
The type of pick you use affects the tone you create.
They come in a variety of gauges: 0.68mm, 0.88mm, and 1.00mm thickness.
They also come in various tones: Bright (white color), Warm (vintage cream color), and Deep (gray color).
The type of pick you use affects the tone you create. That's why we created TUSQ picks, the world's first and only pick with a built-in tone. By formulating various composite materials, we created a whole new class of picks with highly resonant characteristics that produce three distinctive tones: Bright, Warm, and Deep.
TUSQ picks have a high stiffness-to-thickness ratio, like real tortoise shells but with harmonic content, only TUSQ can deliver. Experience a smooth, balanced feel and a clean articulate attack. With TUSQ in your pick, a great tone is in your hands. Now you can choose your gauge, your shape, and now your tone.

What is the Difference in TUSQ Materials?
TUSQ nuts have a rich tone without the inconsistency found in ivory, bone, and other natural materials. Bone and ivory have hard and soft spots (grain) throughout each piece, hampering the consistent transfer of vibrations to the guitar top. TUSQ nuts are designed to transfer the right frequencies more efficiently from the string to the guitar body.
Best for Acoustic Guitars.
TUSQ XL and Black TUSQ XL
TUSQ XL and Black TUSQ XL nuts are designed to boost guitar tone and performance. These precision-engineered nuts are made with a specially formulated material that couples the strings' vibrations to the neck and brings out the hidden harmonics and richness in every note. It is based on the highly resonant TUSQ man-made ivory but is impregnated with PTFE to improve the tuning performance of the guitar.
Best for Electric Guitars and BASS.

Very interesting. Different style and material TUSQ picks do produce different tones. Some of the picks make my high E string a bit out of tune, so I have to adjust slightly the tuning to accommodate. But I really like the different tones.

Still getting used to them and it will take a while to truly evaluate. However, its a bold move for Graphtech in to the picks market and giving a selection away for free is a smart move to get some customer feedback. All I will say is this. Consider every free pick you ever received unsolicited from online parts traders right through to some of the biggest pick up manufacturers in the world. They send you a useless piece of plastic with their name on, sometimes paper coated. These are proper picks. The heavier ones, which I favour, feel quite hard to the touch but only time will tell if that is a good or bad thing, so I may follow this up in a few weeks. So whilst I'm unsure of their potential to take the world by storm just yet, they are definitely worth having as part of your order if you can get some.
- MPMatt P.Verified BuyerI recommend this productRated 5 out of 5 stars8 months agoVery nice sounding picks.
I really like the bright, clean sound that these picks give. Quite an interesting material. When I dumped them out of the baggie, they sounded like pieces of glass clinking against the countertop. I actually went and grabbed all of my favorite picks in the .68mm to .74mm range and compared the sounds they madevwhen dropped on the countertop. Lol! The Graphtech picks were far and away the brightest sounding. Pretty neat that a material that chimey sounding can still be flexible. They are stiffer than most picks of equal thickness that I have used, so the thinnest pick in the pack ended up being my favorite of the bunch. That one is marked as being .68mn but actually mic'ed out to .72mm. The others were too stiff for me, but I'm sure that guys that like stiff picks will really like them.
