We have a really neat pick for this week. It is a guitar knob picture on a white pearl pick.  The knob looks amazing on this pick and looks 3-D on it! Very impressive! The detail is amazing with our print on this pick, and it is literally eye popping! This pick was designed by The Tone Brothers. They are a really amazing Atlanta based band.  To find out more about them please read their bio and check out their website below.

“Brother Doug McCombs has been laying down outrageous TONE with his guitar for the past 35 years. A veteran and founding member of Atlanta-based bands Fear Glory, Texas Crude and Gracie Moon, he’s opened for the likes of John Mayall, Buddy Guy, Ian Moore, and Gov’t Mule, and jammed with Jeff Healey. Whether rocking a packed house while headlining at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago and B.B. King’s Blues Club in Memphis, or grooving alone in his kitchen, Doug and his guitar engage in a dialog of the heart that transcends the moment. A dialog inspired and enriched by echoes of the soul-shaking TONE of his heroes– Jimi Hendrix, Mark Farner, Robin Trower, and Stevie Ray Vaughan–yet defined by his own distinctly righteous signature. Listen to him play, and know how it feels when a man and his guitar achieve total, ass-kicking TONE. TONE Brother Greg Hester grew up around Old School Gangsters & Legendary Wrestlers in Augusta, Georgia. Truly great music instantly changes the context, transporting the listener to the artistʼs world. With a clear understanding of his heritage, Greg introduces us to the voice of Southern Soul, infused with a TONE as heavy as the hot July haze. Along the way, Greg has shared the stage with Robin Trower, Warren Haynes, Johnny Winter, and Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, among others. He captivates even the most jaded of crowds with a stage presence, charisma, and burn down the house intensity reminiscent of his idol and inspiration, James Brown. The power and passion of his singing is matched by the heart and humanity of his songwriting. Listen to him sing and, and witness a man whose art bears witness to the strength of soulful survival and the regenerative essence of TONE.”
