Niglo picks were conceived of by French guitarist Daniel Patin. After an accident which resulted in the loss of his index finger, Daniel began to experiment with pick designs to find something that he could hold without dropping. His efforts resulted in the highly ergonomic and beautiful Niglo pick! The index and thumb indentations along with the curved contour allow the pick to effortlessly stay in place. The picks are also some of the most aesthetically pleasing ever made, and in fact can be worn as jewelry (each pick has a hole drilled so you can wear it as a necklace or bracelet.) In fact, Daniel consulted a jeweler during the development of these picks which explains their excellence in both form and function.
