Products used: Clayton Custom picks with his own design

“As a finger-style and hybrid-picker I never spent too much time worrying about picks.. that is until I tried Claytons. On “for-hire” sessions and live dates you need to have a lot of different techniques at your disposal, and when it comes to anything from digging into raunchy rhythms or mountain-top-face-melters, all the way to slinky and soft sensitive jams, Clayton delivers the tone and feel I want from a pick, absolutely every time.”
