Timber Tones Releases Groove Tones

Timber Tones have added two new lines to their catalog—Groove Tones and Groove Tones Mini

United Kingdom (September 10, 2013) -- Timber Tones have added two new lines to their vast catalogue of plectrums. The new Groove Tones and Groove Tones Mini, include four plectrums (Bone, Horn*2 and Ebony) per line, CNC milled and hand finished. All eco-friendly and very hard to ware.

Groove Tones: Supreme comfort and support.

With a groove on one side for the first finger and a dimple on the other for the thumb, less pressure is needed to grip a Groove Tone plectrum. This is bliss for people with limited clenching abilities.

The sharp curved tip of a Groove Tone delivers excellent sustain with a precise attack, while the curvature holds the string until the last second for a clearer release.

Groove Tones Mini: Accuracy, fluidity and rapid note response.

With the same groove and dimple design, Groove Tone Mini plectrums are manufactured 3mm shorter in length and width, with more of a pronounced, curved tip. This design endorses extreme accuracy and intense contact with the strings ensuring a rapid note response. The smaller size of the Groove Tone Mini is perfect for players with small hands.

Groove Tones: Available in African ebony, clear horn, black horn and buffalo bone. RRP: £4 each. £15 pack of four

We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
