“I have been using Clayton Picks for over 25 yrs now… and I have never deviated. I love the feel of them, how sturdy they are, the simplicity of design, and the tone I get when I dig into my strings. These picks help define my percussive & harmonic style, either on electric or acoustic… and they never let me down.”
