Buy from a wide range of guitar picks from different brands such as Jim Dunlop, Fender, Ibanez, Dava and Planet Waves. Picks come in all different shapes and sizes to suit different guitar players and styles. From thumb and finger picks to Jazz picks we have them all here for sale online and in store.
Plectrums can be used with guitars, ukuleles, mandolins and other fretted instruments.
Picks come in an array of different thicknesses for different tastes, styles and sounds. Picks can be very thin and flimsy at around .40mm or very thick and strong at 2mm or more!
For acoustic guitars sometimes a softer pick would be more appropriate as it allows you to have a wide range of dynamics whilst retaining the integral sound of the guitar. If you have a very thick pick it wouldn't sound as elegant and you wouldn't be able to control the dynamics as much. Of course though, it's all down to your individual preference and ability; picks are cheap so buy a range of sizes to see which suits you the best!
For thinner gauge strings (8s and 9s) a softer pick may be better to use as it would have less stress on the strings potentially preventing it from being plucked too hard which could cause a breakage. Again though, its down to your own playing and preference.
Plectrums also come in different materials such as plastic, nylon, carbon fibre and man made ivory. Tusq picks by Graph Tech are made from a man crafted material designed to emulate the qualities of real ivory but without the inconsistencies and impurities. These picks provide great harmonic content and enhanced tone especially when used with acoustic guitars.
