  • Medium [2.4mm with Dimple]
  • Heavy [3.2mm w/Dimple] and

Tortoise Shell has been the “Holy Grail” of guitar picks for as long as I can remember… and, for a considerably shorter time than that [we won’t get picky] we have been trying to make picks which are legal and non-lethal to life forms, and which get the same sound.

John’s wonderful Studio 2.0 Picks taught people that a pick could be redesigned… and has 3 different picking points, each of which gets a different sound! So, after using Casein [a resin made from Milk and Phosphoric Acid] for our Faux Tortoise ™ Shell Pins, it wasn’t much of a stretch of the imagination to think about doing the Studio™–now Fast Turtles™ Picks in Casein.

These are not your “normal” flat picks in thickness as they start at 1.0mm and go to 4.2! The Thin and XThin are flat where the other three have a thumb dimple.
