We owe much to the bees. Globally there are more honey bees than other types of bee and pollinating insects, so it is the world's most important pollinator of food crops. It is estimated that one third of the food that we consume each day relies on pollination mainly by bees, but also by other insects, birds and bats. We feel like we need to do something and we recently came across an exciting research initiative that is actively solving some of the biggest issues facing honeybees. So we want to team up with you to help fund this research!
This particular research group at Washington State University was chosen as it has already proven to make significant strides in solving many of the major health issues affecting Bees. We are big fans of Paul Stamets, and his approach of using mushrooms and mycelium to solve bee health problems with natural methods. Please join us in our partnership with Host Defense to Save the Bees!
You can order our pick tins in 0.9mm or 1.4mm thicknesses.
Our 0.9mm has a playability that is similar to a Fender Medium, while our 1.4mm would be similar to a Fender Thick, but with a much warmer tone.
Thalia Exotic Wood Picks are crafted by slicing micro-thin layers of exotic wood and then bonding them back together with the woodgrain in a crosshatch pattern. The result is a very thin, flexible and durable wood pick with a warm tone that sounds better with each use. We offer multiple shapes and thicknesses.
Check out the overview video below for more details:
Our picks are made in the USA of 100% Santos Rosewood. Our 0.9mm picks are made with 2 layers of exotic wood and 1.4mm picks are made with 3 layers of exotic wood.
Our picks are made of 100% wood so they will wear down with use. They will not last as long as a plastic pick, but we think that you will love their tone and thinness.
Our thinnest pick, the 0.9mm is flexible and functionally similar to a Fender Medium. As a result these picks will wear out much faster than our thicker 1.4mm picks. These picks are made of two layers of wood that are crosshatched for strength. They are the most fragile of all of our picks. These picks are really made for users who desire flex in their wood pick. If you are a hard strummer the 0.9mm picks are probably not for you.
Our thicker 1.4mm picks will develop a beveled edge as you play with them and adapt to your picking style. These picks are made of three layers of wood and are far more durable. As a result, they really don't have any flex.
