Description from Amazon USA : Traditional musicians in Northern India originally fashioned picks from coconut shell to play the Sarod, a multi-stringed fretless relative of the sitar and the rebab. In later years, the picks have been reduced in size and many players of the modern sarod have abandoned the coconut picks in favor of a new, more compact, pick made from rosewood.
European and American musicians traveling in India in the sixties brought these unique picks back with them and soon guitarists were discovering that they made superb picks for jazz! The tone that they produced was full and rich and immeasurably stronger than that produced by a celluloid, nylon or even a tortoise-shell pick.
The exciting new Sarod Picks from John Pearse are handmade in India by craftsmen who are expert in the fashioning of exotic woods. One side has a rounded depression for your thumb while the other has a curve just perfect for your index finger to hold the pick snugly and securely. They are made for Right-Handed Players.
Just hold one of the these painstakingly carved picks in your hand and hear for yourself the magic that has been concealed within your guitar.
