The history of Dava picks began in 1975, when the Briton Dave Storey not only repaired guitars in a London music shop, but also developed a new vibrato system for guitars, which attracted great interest from musicians such as David Gilmour. In search of a producer for his creation, Storey joined forces with Gary Kahler, inventor of the Kahler vibrato, after moving to the USA in the early eighties and Storey's creation became the Kahler Flat and Stud Mount Tremolo System, popular not only with well-known artists such as Neil Schon, Jeff Beck or Alex Lifeson. Storey's next stroke was to develop a new type of pick that would be flexible enough for all possible uses. The Dava Control Pick has a thickening in the middle, depending on how far you hold the pick towards the tip, it becomes stiffer or more flexible, which also eliminates the need for different pick thicknesses. The Grip Picks are further developments of the original Control Pick. Just like the original Control Pick, they have a thickening in the middle, which allows for flexible adjustment of the playing dynamics. On the other hand, they have a generous rubber coating and provide a first-class grip when playing due to the grooves in the middle of the pick. The Grip Tips Combo pack contains one pick each of the following types: Classic Control, Master Control, Jazz Grips Delrin, Rock Control Delrin, Rubber Grip Delrin, ideal for all those who want to have a closer look at Dava picks but do not yet know which one suits them best. All Dava picks are made in the USA and are subject to Dava's quality control.
