The "Driftwood" needles are made of smooth, hard birch with a beautiful grayish finish that varies with the woodgrain, while the pairs match up — subtle but stunning. The tips are long and slender. The black metal endcaps have the sizes etched into them, not printed, and a smooth join to the cables. And the black cables are likewise smooth and flexible.
The STANDARD SETincludes 5" tips in 12 sizes, US4-US17, and comes in a black faux leather fold-up case with elastic that's perfectly matched to the size of each needle pair for a snug fit. The large pocket contains 5 cords (two 24", two 32", one 40"), 4 keys, 2 cord connectors and 4 stoppers.
