I want to design guitar picks (maybe offer custom service): what would change about yours?

#1
Hey, I have started a small company and we want to make guitar picks. What do you not like about your guitar picks and what would you change?
#2
how terribly i play with them

I don't like how they're not exactly Pick of Destinies. I would change them to be Pick of Destinies. Complete with powers to defeat the devil in a guitar battle.

BladeSlinger haha is it the guitar picks or you just not used to them?
nah, I'm just a terrible player.

I mainly get frustrated with a lack of grip. I got some Jazz III's with a ton of extra grip, and it was so wonderful. That being said, most picks I find are easy to lose while playing at times. I also have trouble relaxing my grip sometimes because I'll relax my hand too much and lose the pick.

Tbh I've been using the same one almost for as long as I've started playing (8 years now) and the only thing I'd change about it is maybe the color.

Make them less attractive to pick gnomes. Or put tracking devices on them or something. They're great, when those little sh!ts aren't stealing them.

It really is great. It's 3.0mm, so it's pretty much indestructible, plays super solidly, and it's triangle shaped so it don't matter how you hold it. Holding it may take some getting used to but once you do, in my experience, it's hard to go back.

Take notes, TS. A quality guitar pick should have all these things. Trust me, I'm the only guitarist left in The Pit.

while we're discussing these things I never liked the super thick stubby picks, I'm sure its possible but for me the rounded tip never let me change my dynamics as much as I could with a flat pick - plus I always had to hold onto them too tightly.

If you can find a way to stop me losing them and having to buy new ones every month that would be great
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass

Most guitar picks break. I have a nylon one but it does not last so long. If I could have the chance to change mine, it should be the toughness of such piece without compromising the comfort of the guitarist.

they're nice but they still wear down pretty fast for me and you can't really comfortably put any attack on a note with them

Something I'd like to see and haven't yet is a pick that's both flexible and durable - all the extra durable ones I've tried have been too rigid and brittle and crack after a short while

I have a bowl of grey picks because the sizes I prefer in the material I prefer are all grey. I want some color in my life.

I like the Ultex and Tortex picks that are 1mm or thicker.

Only thing I would change would be some slight texturing for grip.

Ok, I have better grip, flexible and durable material that doesn't wear down quickly, more color, between .60mm and 3.0mm, and heavy triangular. Great feedback so far! Thank you

I've always wanted a thumbpick that wasn't two feet long.

Why are they so long?


I second that.

How about a small one trick pony pick? Like a pinch harmonic only pick?

sometimes i play too much guitar and forget to brush my teeth in the morning because im so excited to play more guitar, can you make a pick with a toothbrush on it so i can remember to stay hygenic before it gets to midday and the damage is done

edit: also can you make a pick that allows me to stay inspired in my music path

You gotta go from at least .60mm - 3.0mm

I'd be disappointed if .73 and .88 were not offered.

Not everyone uses super monster thickness picks.

i play with the jazz 3's right now, and they do pretty much everything i need.

i've always wanted to try metal guitar picks, maybe something that doesn't wear down as easily...

Seconded. I've never been a fan of thicker picks, .73's where it's at.

Maybe offer some sort of light texturing on thinner pick sizes, to make them a little easier to hold when your hand starts sweating? Maybe that's just a problem unique to me, just brainstorming.

You start making me triangular heavy picks and I'll start paying your rent
Gravity Striker? I have a couple, they're pretty big and triangular and mine are 1.5mm but I think they go up to 3.

When I use a pick (mostly use fingernails now) I use the carbon fiber Jazz III max grips. Perfect shape and size, excellent grip, completely rigid without being super thick, and they barely wear down at all. I just compared a new one to the one stuck to my guitars headstock that's probably a couple years old and the tip might be worn down half a millimeter. Don't know what else I could want in a pick. Maybe if it came in different colors
#37
make me a jazz III w/ nick reinhart's face or the hot dog man on it ye?

edit: also left handed thumb/fingerpicks would be pretty gr8
