Tagua nut picks


Shapes guide

Description and Features

Tagua nut picks are made from tagua, a completely organic material derived from the nut of palm trees. It is a very hard and complex nut to work with, which means that the pick does not wear out with use. Tagua is also called vegetal ivory, due to the color and hardness that make it similar to this material.

Tagua nut picks have a creamy white texture and offer a compact and dense feel to the touch. Their material is very smooth, but the incision on its surface acts as a grip, granting a solid grasp.

Pro tip: tagua nut picks offer a clean and firm sound, which emphasizes above all mid-high frequencies. The sound created by these picks resembles that of bone picks, but is slightly softer. If you want to know more about the sound differences of each material, in this guide you will find more information on features like hardness and resistance and videos of musicians testing the acoustic performative nuances of Devilpicks’ products.

Ilaria's advice: tagua nut picks come from a long and careful process, which allows the musicians to hold an object of high craftsmanship in their hands. This is why I recommend them to those who want a precious object, to keep for themselves or as a gift.

Tagua nut picks, like all Devilpicks’ creations, are handcrafted and made entirely by hand: this means that each pick is unique and unrepeatable. If you would like custom engravings (such as your name or your band logo), please contact me via the following form.
