SharkTooth "Traditional" Crossover Pick review by David Wallimann
To order follow the dealer links below or call 714-663-0071 during normal business hours (PST).
Crossover Pick inventor Greg M. Atkin says;
I recommend the SharkTooth Traditional and the Kodiak Crossover Picks because the pick & strap assemblies can be interchanged. However, the SharkTooth Hybrid model is also fun to play with due to its fluid strumming capability.
Take note that the Un-Thumb-Pick is the most unusual model in the collection and it may take a bit more practice to master.
Introduction to the Four Crossover Pick Models!
The three SharkTooth Crossover Pick models are Hybrid, Traditional and the Un-Thumb-Pick. The Hybrid and Traditional both retail for $12.00 in a dual pack. That is, two units per package. The Un-Thumb-Pick model sells for 12.00 retail in a single unit package.
The fourth model is called the Kodiak Crossover Pick and it also retails for US$12.00 in the dual pack.
