If you play your acoustic guitar with a pick, then that’s your next point of contact with the instrument, and just as demanding of careful consideration. The acoustic guitar sounds different from an electric guitar, and it plays differently, too—make sure you find a pick that’s going to bring your favorite acoustic guitar to life. Thankfully, we make quite a few that will do that quite nicely. If you’re feeling experimental, check out our Acoustic Pick Variety Pack for a collection of picks that will awaken the true richness and resonance of your instrument.
In particular, we recommend Ultex® Standard Picks and Primetone® Picks. Ultex Standard Picks project loudly and clearly, making them a great choice for singer-songwriters belting out their vocals. Try out different gauges to find the tone and feel that work for you. Primetone Sculpted Plectra also provide excellent volume and clarity—they’re made from the same Ultex material—but they’re especially great for players who need to play fast with little resistance. Designed with a sculpted beveled edge, Primetone Picks play with the smooth, comfortable feel of a pick that’s worn its way through countless sessions of blissful play. If you’re into bluegrass, or are looking to try a new technique, check out the version with grip, but if you’re a jazzer, you might be more interested in the non-grip version for its warmer attack. Primetone Picks are available in many shapes and gauges for a variety of styles and tones, and each has that nice, smooth-feeling sculpted bevel.
