    Hi!
    This video where I try out my new pick. I made it from elk horn and flamed birch. Works fine on gypsy jazz style IMO. Playing gypsy jazz with elk hornPlaying gypsy jazz with elk hornPlaying gypsy jazz with elk hornPlaying gypsy jazz with elk horn

    Thank you! Here the wood is for decorating and grip. Sanded bone is very smooth and it has that bright "cling". Personally I prefer wooden picks for warm touch and hint of natural roughness. But when playing gypsy jazz these bone picks are wonderful.

    You had me going there! Elk horn?

    By the way, Mikko's YouTube channel is absolutely worth checking out, IMO.

    i have an elk horn pick! it was sent to me by a forum member years ago...i had to rework it some...but it's a great pick...still have it..a fave

    clayton exotics also has some bone and horn picks that i use and like

    but none are as beautiful as mikko's work...that's a different level

    a mystical rowan wood pick is in my future!! hah

    cheers

    Yeah, other side is all horn bone and other side has this wood inlay. Fun to play and watch.

    I have tried to keep all materials domestic and natural. There are still different horns and bones to try and some woods.
