This is the shape that started it all - the pick that made us want to get into picks. But we've added a twist with a new grip design. We've blended our popular pistol grip style with the addition to a center hole. The combination of these two grip elements has us truly excited. We can't put these picks down.
At this point, this is just a prototype and we're keeping them the natural tagua color, but things may change after this first batch.
The Tarsier primate is one of the smallest in the world - known for it's giant eyes and ability to swivel their head 180 degrees.
After you try our picks, you will never go back to a cheap plastic pick again. Howling Monkey Handmade Tagua Guitar Picks provide superior clarity, control, attack, and durability. Our diamond pattern Pistol Grips act as a non-slip texture which helps the pick from sliding around when your hand starts to sweat.

So, what is tagua? It’s a nut that grows on palm tress in the rain forests of South America. Tagua is environmentally friendly unlike other picks that require harvesting of trees; or bones/horns of animals; or petroleum based resin. We’re simply picking nuts from a tree.
Our supply of tagua is harvested through an internationally certified coalition that employs over 1,800 native South American workers, providing income to the native peoples of Ecuador and Colombia.
