Hand Made Tagua Guitar Picks

The Rainforest.
The rainforests of Ecuador are humid, sunny, full of vegetation, animals, and critters of all kinds. It’s a place where the circle of life is fully evident.

Where monkeys live, play and howl in the trees. Where trees grow tagua nuts and shed their seeds to spread new life throughout the forest.

Western New York.
In contrast, we live in Rochester NY. It’s a beautiful and vibrant city, but compared to the lush rainforests, it’s cold, gray, full of concrete, cars, and crazy people of all kinds. Snow regularly falls in April (we get 90″ of snow each year).

We’ve dreamt of a championship from our professional sports teams and it never comes to true (being a Buffalo Bills & Sabres fan can be painful sometimes).

In the dead of winter, January 2013, where there was not a band to gig with and needing refuge from the cold, Howling Monkey was born.


Our Philosophy on Environmental/Economic Sustainability:
At Howling Monkey Tagua Nut Guitar Picks we strive to bring you high quality tagua guitar picks. Tagua Nut is a natural, environmentally sustainable substance found in South America (Ecuador/Columbia). The tagua nuts are harvested through a coalition employing over 1800 native Ecuadorians providing good income that would normally not be there without this import. Unlike wood guitar picks that require manufacturers to harvest entire trees, tagua nut picks are environmentally friendly--we're just picking the fruit. And since tagua nuts grow on trees, there's no need to harm animals like horn, bone and hoof guitar pick producers may do. Our supplier meets ISO 9002 standards and is certified by SGS International Certification Services.
