Of all the picks Ive used tortoise sounds and plays the best. Not because of my expectations but my experience as I was not expecting any particular. A species of wood has characteristics that allow the maximum of any characteristic but may not be achieved by a builder or may be or close to its potential. All woods are not the same nor do they sound the same but woods of the same species sound and look more similar to each other than different species. A mahogany guitar and a braz guitar by the same builder will not sound the same because they have different potentials. You may like one or the other or oak but they will not sound the same. You may find an oak guitar and a rosewood guitar that sound very similar by different builders due to their ability to bring out the best in that particular species and set but that doesnt mean that all oak guitars will sound similar to all rosewood guitars.
