Branded acetal, tear or normal shaped 1-2 mm picks
“Upon discovering the Steve Clayton picks, the branded acetal, tear or normal shaped 1-2 mm picks became the weapons of choice due to the fact that they are sturdy and great for riffing. The material does not let the pick slip through the fingers during a hot evening onstage when hands are sweaty and chances are you will lose an ordinary pick.”
Guitarist, vocalist, guitar instructor and coach, Cosmin started his music career in 2004 playing with his first band, Evo.
