The SnakePick coils around the player's finger at an outward taper. The necessary tension is created by the coil sizes in relation to the finger. The small 13 mm (1.3 cm) size is measured based on the width of your finger, closest knuckle to the fingernail, and generally fits the youngest aspiring shredders of the guitar-playing world. The SnakePick's gauge density is not set by a measurement like the standard pick but set by the consistency of the plastic material. This revolutionary idea works magnificently and allows the guitarist to have much more definition and control over his or her playing without losing tone through alteration of their technique. The Mixed Pack includes one soft, one medium, and one hard pick for complete flexibility.
