 Review from GUITAR PLAYER MAGAZINE,  "Speed Rating" SEPT. 2013: 

"Tortoise Tone™  plectra—with sharp, medium, broad, and extra-broad tips... produced very pleasing tones, with a distinctive magic of their own...
full, round, and nicely balanced sounds, with the different points altering
​ the attack, bite, brightness, and overall articulation."

FEEDBACK:

"Well, one thing with making picks is tone production (takes one from me for the very first time, eyes it skeptically, plays for 20 seconds)... hmm... that's very good. You should brand it.  Somebody's going to try copying you."

"As a bass player, I had never really been excited by using a pick - I always felt disconnected from the strings.  Tortoise Tone™  made me a believer.  The pick really feels like an extension of the instrument..."

"I have purchased two Tortoise Tone™ picks...  very attentive and made the picks to my specs.  The tonequality is great on acoustic guitars and mandolins.  I use them on my electrics also.  Best picks I've owned in my 45 years of playing!"

I am a "gas" fanatic... this adds to the collection.   I have at least 100 + different styles of picks...
This is one of the five picks I use.   Awesome."
