About this project
"A guitar pick is just a guitar pick". Nothing could be further from the truth!
V-Picks are amazingly unique guitar picks that sound better, are easier to play than regular picks, and they are slip resistant, meaning you will not drop them when you are playing. They are unlike any other guitar pick you have ever played. By their design, V-Picks can help you to become a better guitar player. We make picks for Acoustic and Electric Guitars, Bass, Mandolins and Dulcimers. V-Picks are good for any kind of music. Rock, Blues, Country, Jazz, Folk or Bluegrass. Carlos Santana, Aerosmith and Steely Dan all use V-Picks, both live and in the studio. It's time for you to find out why...
Our customers say our picks have changed their lives!
"Hey man! First thing I gotta say is this pick is amazing! I don't know how you did it, but you made the perfect pick. I can only imagine the hours you've put in, but trust me, it shows! And with a pick this good, it was worth it! I know I sound like I'm in some sort of infomercial, but I can't help it! These picks just are THAT GOOD! When I tried them for the first time today I was amazed! It played much better than other picks. And the sound was amazing! A friend of mine, who doesn't even play, can hear the difference in tone with the V-Pick. And hands down, the most comfortable pick I've ever played. Anyway man, I just really wanted to let you know that this is more than a great product. This is a wonderful piece of art, and I think guitar players everywhere should be aware. Your picks are awesome man! Best wishes,~ Dustin"
I have been a guitar player all my life. Since John, Paul, George and Ringo first came across the pond, I have played guitar. However, the tools available for this art never seemed to perform as I wanted or needed them to. For instance, regular picks were so thin sounding, and dropping them in the middle of a song was embarrassing and so common it was to be expected. They literally slowed down my process of learning and becoming the musician and artist I wanted to be. So, for years I experimented, grinding down different woods, metals, coins and plastics, looking for that perfect material that would render a singing tone, fast action, and easy grip. Enter V-Picks Guitar Picks!
What are V-Picks
V-Picks are hand made guitar picks from Nashville, TN. Our picks are born 2 different ways. Some start as sheets of material that are put into a laser and then cut out, after which we grind them to perfection on a bench grinder and finally buff them with 1500 degree flame. We also heat temper the material making our picks stronger so they last much longer than other picks on the market. The others start out being poured in a mold and then hand trimmed and finished with a razor knife. Both techniques render guitar picks that sounds magnificent, shows little wear after many hours of use, and has a very "grippable," slip-resistant quality. You simply do not drop them or have to re-adjust your pick while playing your guitar. When you hold a V-Pick in your hand, it begins to warm up to your body temperature and then grips to your fingers. You soon realize this is no ordinary guitar pick you are holding. Really! It's true!
This Kickstarter project will fund bigger and more efficient equipment. We can only make so many V-Picks at this point. We are limited by our equipment. Sometimes we just can't keep up with the demand. More efficient tools and machinery will allow us to scale up production so we can supply quality guitar picks in a much larger number. Your support will enable us to supply V-Picks to a world of guitarists, who will in return, make beautiful music with them, enriching every one of our lives.
