How to choose your pick

All picks for guitar and bass created by Devilpicks are artisanal products crafted entirely by hand, therefore each piece is unique and one-of-a-kind.

Every single aspect of the pick, starting from the choice of material, through the selection of shapes and thicknesses up to customization, is designed to best suit the needs of the musician that will hold it in his or her hand. 

Before carving, I personally take care of testing the materials to verify their resistance and their ability to adapt to the functions of the pick.

For these reasons, depending on the instrument you use, the type of strings you prefer, the musical genre you are passionate about, and your preferences in terms of sound nuances and grip strength, in my catalog, you will find the most suitable pick for you.

Below you will find a guide to help you figure out which pick to choose. In fact, you will find the designs corresponding to the codes indicated on the product pages (F, PG, J, JXL, T, D, G). 

If, on the other hand, you do not have clear ideas about the material that best suits your style, I invite you to look at the tests conducted by Alex Pedriva, Luca Arduini and Edoardo Lamacchia, three professional musicians who have evaluated for you the differences in the sound of Devilpicks’ products

To better grasp all the nuances of the sound, I invite you to listen to these videos with headphones in a quiet environment.

If, on the other hand, you desire a personalized pick (for example with your band's logo engraved on it), or a pick designed for an instrument different from guitar and bass, contact me, and together we will find the solution that suits you best.
