Does it really make sense to pay more than a couple of cents for a guitar pick?
For many guitar players, their instruments, amps, pickups, cables, pedals and effects units have utmost importance while guitar picks which come into physical contact with their instruments are perceived as trivial accessories.
Generally speaking, guitar picks are considered to be cheap and disposable items that guitar players often buy new ones in order to maintain the initial form of their picks. This has led to the fact that they are indeed cheap and guitar players do not really think about how many times they buy their favourite picks in a year.
Chicken Picks are one of the longest-lasting guitar picks in the market. It stays in a usable form for 6 months to 1 year with standard usage. On top of that, thermoset material used for making Chicken Picks does way less harm to our planet than regular plastic materials.
They are proudly made in the Netherlands, free from child labour. Guitar players who have tried Chicken Picks have never wanted to go back to their standard guitar picks. Ask the one using these picks and you’ll find out!
So what makes Chicken Picks that different?
Chicken Picks are made of a special thermoset material (a type of plastic material processed under high temperature and pressure, once hardened there is no going back to their initial form) and each one of them is finished by hand for the best result.
When you consider its lifespan, it is probably one of the cheapest guitar picks in the market 🙂 And lastly, since it’s quite hard yet resonant, it will give you very unique harmonic and tonal characteristics that no other guitar picks can.

Wider dynamic range, more control, less fatigue!
While Its thicker and denser structure in contrast to standard picks provides a wider dynamic range and more control, it is also less tiring for picking hands and results in longer performances without sacrificing your joy.
Its dynamic range is wider than most guitar picks. Why? Because it’s completely rigid and provides way more range in any style of music.
As a bonus feature, its unique logo and thickness measurement are placed by laser technology thus gives you a non-slip surface on both sides.
Chicken Picks comes with bevelled edges on both sides* which enables players to use their picks on both sides and suitable for every style of guitar playing. Since Tri-Tone (Bermuda and Badazz models) series have three sharpened tips, you will always have sharp, pointy tips in any playing scenarios.
After having played with the picks for 10 to 15 minutes, tips will self-polish and have a slightly glossy look which suits your unique picking strike patterns.
