The Master Control Pick is the ultimate cool pick! It is the first pick ever to combine a metal edge with plastic flexibility. The nickel silver tip is the same material as guitar fret wire. If you bend notes, you know how smooth the strings glide over frets. This is the same for the pick. Incredibly smooth and fast but never "too bright," nickel silver has great chime, and can be totally "full on" when you want it to be.
