By BassPlayer ,

Timber Tones has added three new lines to its vast catalogue of highly individual and unique, natural materials plectrums. The new Blues Tones, Jazz Tones and Jazzy Tones, include four per line, all hand finished from some of the world’s finest tonewoods off-cuts of the guitar industry and eco friendly, by-product, buffalo bone and horn.

Jazz Tones

Hand shaped from the finest buffalo bone and horn, the Jazz Tones represent Timber Tones take on that characteristic Jazz shape. Precision oriented, they are praised both by Jazzmen and Heavy Metal shredders alike.

Buffalo bone is used for its very bright, precise, clear sound, with natural fast and aggressive attack that is ideal for Heavy Metal shredders. For a more mellow approach, the Horn-crafted Jazz Tones offer a range of warmer, softer tones. Both these materials naturally absorb and diffuse soft heat, thus offering an extremely comfortable non-slip grip.

All Jazz Tones feature the all-important sharp chamfered tip, delivering a quicker and more accurate string release, essential for playing complex melody lines. Available in Natural, Black, Blond or White. And of course, Bone/Horn never wears out. For that extravert personality, Jazz Tones are offered with the same design as Jazzy Tones. Buffalo Bone which comes in Pink, Green, Turquoise or Orange.

Blues Tones

Crafted from four of the world’s most exotic tonewoods, the Blues Tones are the timbered answer to the Jazz Tones, 2mm thick and again, chamfered at the tip. They are extremely versatile and designed for use on bass or electric guitars, as well as steel or nylon strung acoustic guitars, whilst offering a wide variety of tones.

For their clean, bright hard edged attack, the Blues Tones in African Ebony are a favourite with electric guitar players, delivering an aggressive, focused performance ideal for blues or rock, with the capability of being worked hard over and over with minimal wear.

The Blues Tones crafted from Indian Rosewood, are perfect for less forceful or acoustic players, a great all-rounder with unique sonic characteristics. Dedicated nylon strung and classical players will adore the superior grip and tonal warmth of the Padauk Blues Tones, and the accurate response of the Blues Tones crafted from beautiful samples of the softer Haldu tonewood, perfect for harmonic chord progressions and silky smooth lead lines.
