A Washington native, Cuz-n-Dave Goble hails out of Seattle, Washington and has spent years working as a professional guitar-tech, tour manager and stage manager for major label bands.
As a touring professional, Cuz-n-Dave has supported legendary artists and has worked with the best of the best on stage.
This experience and expertise have made Cuz-n-Dave uniquely qualified to understand today's artists' expectations on the world stage.
As a designer, Cuz-n-Dave's specialty is to create custom products made for touring artists and budding musicians alike.
While on tour, Cuz-n-Dave reached into his guitar workbox and pulled out inspiration. A traditional flat pick with a small part stuck to the surface balanced onto his finger. Inspiration led to Cuz-n-Dave's first guitar pick design patent, "The Balanced Weighted Plectrum."
This was the birth of VertPicks. The unique concept opened the door for creating specialty grip picks that feature vertical raised surfaces that are ergonomically designed to feel just right.
The special designs use leverage to minimize pinch pressure and finger fatigue while maximizing grip, attack, and playability. Multiple VertPicks designs were created but narrowed down to three with live-concert testing and input from professional musicians.
