Pro Music Marketing, Inc. announced the launch of Pykmax High Performance Guitar Picks. The result of a multiyear design and engineering effort, Pykmax features a patented ergonomic design which makes it extremely comfortable to play with and eliminates the need for tight gripping of the pick. 

Early adopters of Pykmax have found it very easy and enjoyable to use say that it feels very natural in their hands.

According to Jeremy Milikow, CEO of Pro Music Marketing, "Pykmax enables you to concentrate less on gripping the pick and more on your actual playing. It's innovative design enables greater speed and superior control of your playing. Regardless of how wild you play or how sweaty your hand gets, the pick will not rotate or slip but rather will stay in the perfect position for strumming and picking. Furthermore, Pykmax opens the door for guitarists to develop new and innovative techniques that are simply not possible with current guitar pick designs."

Pykmax is currently available in two right handed body sizes, small and medium. The small size is recommended for children up the age of approximately 15 and for adults with small hands. The medium size is recommended for most adult players. Three plectrum gauges are offered for each body size. 0.60mm, 0.88mm, and 1.00mm. Pykmax plectrums are precision injected molded from Delrin. Standard Pykmax packaging includes one body and one plectrum mounted on the body. The standard retail price is $12.00. Pykmax is available in the USA at the Pykmax webstore and Amazon.com.

    So it's a regular pick tied to a bigger thinggy that you hold in your palm...

    I always looked at my picks and prayed to the heavens: "These crappy little picks aren't suitable for my needs, I spend too much time concentrating on gripping it rather than playing" Praise Odin that somebody heard my pleas.

    Well naysayers and "learn to play" losers can say what they want, but this is at least something new to try out. Who knows may come up with a whole new technique, so ya dont have the same as everyone else and be individual. By the replies around here, its no wonder guitar is making little progress. Apparently to be cool, you have to play like everyone else.

    if it ain't broke, don't fix it! can't play with a normal pick? practice more and sort your technique out!

    If everyone listened to you we'd all still be playing acoustic guitars.

    I don't want to seem closed minded, but I kind of agree with the whole "if it ain't broke thing". Electric guitars exist to solve a fundamental problem with acoustic guitars - they aren't loud enough. Since then we've found cool stuff we can do with them. This, on the other hand, solves a problem very few people genuinely have and you can't stick 50 of these in your pocket. There's nothing wrong with the design, there's just not really any point.

    is that what ya said about 7 string guitars to? 5 string basses? 6 strings weren't broke after all. Maybe you said this about cables, those have gone through a 100 designs. What about strings? Nanowebbing and such, was probably a waste of time right? Shoulda suck with cat intestines.... Progress is made by innovation. Maybe get your self out of the mud and try something new, before you decide its not needed or wanted. What if you got this thing and developed a whole new technique or is your technique the only right one? Arrogant guitar players, suck.

    All of those examples fall under "things that were in fact broke and which needed improvement". I've met exactly one person who had a hard time holding a pick. Also, you suck.

    I use those really cool picks for some time, and have found them to be nothing short of amazing, in that my picking accuracy has increased considerably. With these picks, I also never worry anymore about dropping the pick or think about how hard I have grip it, so my concentration and attention can be more focused on my playing style and the creative side of things. I've also discovered a playing technique which would have been virtually impossible using a regular pick. I cannot say enough good things about the PYKMAX picks, which took me personally a minimum amount of time to get used to...

    You can't critisize it without trying it. The point here is not to solve a problem, it's helping you play better. I use it all the time and it's really comfortable and makes me play better.

    Love all the close ups available online... I was able to make my own out of plexiglass, for about $.50 in materials.

    "It's innovative design enables greater speed and superior control of your playing." "Furthermore, Pykmax opens the door for guitarists to develop new and innovative techniques that are simply not possible with current guitar pick designs." ..... Hmm, Randy Rhodes, Steve Vai, EVH, and Jason Becker didnt seem to need a Pykmax. I guess todays guitarists are just lazy.

    God did you miss where they said "New techniques"? meaning of course that YOU could develop something NEW that all those you list DID NOT! OMG Something new, you better stay in the dark ages where you're comfortable with your classic techniques.
