Rabea Massaad’s impressive technical skill and passion for great tone and high-performance gear have set him on a remarkable path as a guitar player. A self-taught musician, Rabea has become a YouTube star widely respected among the online guitar playing community for his thoughtful and informative reviews of picks, pedals, instruments, and other equipment. On top of that, he’s lent his talents to the bands FrogLeap, Toska, and Dorje. At the 2021 Reading Festival, he opened the set of British superstar Stormzy with an absolutely ripping solo.
Rabea knows what makes for a great pick, and he became so obsessed with the superior attack, precision, and articulation provided by Flow Picks, he just had to have his own version—the Rabea Massaad Flow Standard Pick. “Now, I have everything I need in a pick,” he says. “It's fast, articulate, and super comfortable. I couldn’t be happier.”
