Choosing the right guitar pick is a very important and personal choice. Picks are what connect us to the instrument, and different materials, thickness, and shape can change our tone and attack while playing.

The German-designed and engineered Rombo Picks have come up with a very innovative and eco-friendly set of picks. They decided to “go back to design basics,” and after months of physical studies, they came up with four unique designs. Focusing on four parameters: flexibility, attack, technique, and tone, they have adapted those essential properties to create their unique picks.

These picks contain micro-patterns that fit in between your fingerprint grooves, creating a comfortable and ergonomic grip. With four different designs and thickness levels, there is something in their line to suit almost every player and playing style. Also, they have found a great way to use recycled materials: in their ECO-Black line, the picks are made from one hundred percent recycled material from pre-consumer fiber waste. The other pick line is made from thermoplastic polymer.

I enjoyed trying out these guitar picks. They are very stylish, and I feel Rombo has succeeded with their goal of creating a comfortable pick. They provided a clear tone with bass, and they were versatile, durable, and good looking. I liked them all but felt a great connection with the Diamond and the Classic for my personal playing style. I also tried out the ECO-BLACK set. I use a certain style of pick for playing electric guitar (I preferred the Diamond for that), and I loved the Classic for my acoustic playing.

I got great tones while being able to handle the picks comfortably in my hand. I also enjoyed the Rombo waves and Origami for electric and acoustic playing. I felt those two were very versatile for playing either guitar.
