The original 'POLYCARBONATE' plectrums
Before ordering, please make sure to read the SHIPPING PAGE
I've been experimenting with 'Aircraft Grade Polycarbonate' and had the idea to build these plectrums. I've never heard of a 'handmade polycarbonate pick' before (not to be confused with cast acrylic), probably because it is MUCH harder to shape and polish and the material is also approx 35% more expensive than cast acrylic, however the result is fantastic, this is the 'stiffest pick' I have ever built and the material is very durable!10mm thick
Economy of motion + more playing strength = less playing effort!
My plectrums are much thicker than the norm. The idea is to minimise movement and increase the guitarist’s hand strength. Less effort is required to play, which is a relief to the player. As a result, he will have less cramping and tenseness, which is very useful for guitarists suffering from osteoarthritis, tendinitis or other muscular problems. Naturally, this is also very interesting for the adventurous guitarist who has none of these problems, because this bio-mechanical phenomenon can help him obtain more precision, strength and speed too!
