The quest for ultimate tone is nothing new. Acoustic musicians have experimented and chased that ghost for as long as plectrums have been needed. For the last 100 years, the pinnacle of tone has been crafted from backs of the endangered Hawksbill sea turtle. Top stringed instrument players have preferred the tonal qualities of tortoise shell (as it's commonly known), but these types of plectrums are no longer manufactured due to the endangerment of the species.
The quest for the tone has finally ended! It's time to reveal your instrument's true tone. Here at ToneSlabs, we've unlocked the tonal secrets of that natural material. In fact, our combination of hardness, rigidity, density, design and top shelf bevel techniques exceeds the tonal quality of tortoise shell. Your slab is the key to volume, clarity, and note separation. That's what all discerning musician's strive for, isn't it?
At ToneSlabs, we take the power of that tonal essence and all that it represents very seriously. Co-Founders David Welch and Multi Grammy nominated artist Frank Solivan have spent decades performing, searching, tinkering, and experimenting to find a pick that will produce the perfect tone. Ultimately, that time and effort has led us to design and refine our picks for optimum tone. Our attention to detail combined with our material, make ToneSlabs THE premier pick across the plectrum landscape.
We founded this company for musicians. From the weekend warriors to your favorite professional working musicians or our Partner Musicians, it's our goal to provide the finest equipment available. We will never stop tinkering. We will never stop experimenting. We will never stop improving. You deserve the best, and we're committed to giving it to you.
ToneSlabs isn't your grandfather's equipment company. We're focused on two things:
We began by building the best product. Then we formed a company by musicians for musicians. The pros you see and hear playing ToneSlabs are critical partners in what we do. They have been essential to the refinement of our product. Because they believe in our product and in the company's mission, they have also signed on to become partners. If the best in the business trust us to put their tone in our hands (or, more accurately, put our tone in their hands), shouldn't you?
Our focus is to provide every player with the best products available. We're committed to you and your tone!
