4mm 'TORTOISE SHELL Galalith' plectrums (RARE)
By ordering something from this webstore, you agree to the terms and conditions.
I recently came across a rare vintage stock of Galalith, a synthetic plastic discovered in the late 19th century and popularized during the Art-Deco period of the early 20th century. Galalith is considered to be the only real alternative to Tortoiseshell, which used to be the golden standard plectrum material. Despite its popularity, the material was discontinued in the mid-70s due to its inability to be molded, causing it to fall out of favor with commercial users. Galalith is made from the interaction of casein and formaldehyde, resulting in an extremely hard material that is difficult to polish to a high gloss. However, its hardness makes it an excellent imitation of gemstones, with a strikingly realistic appearance. It's surprising to note that Galalith is a bio-plastic, making it biodegradable despite being a plastic.
Creating a single plectrum from this rare material is a labor-intensive process that takes approximately an hour to handcraft. But the end result is worth it - each plectrum is a unique and beautiful work of art.
