I seem to be on a never-ending quest to find my ideal guitar pick lately, and this month has been no different. Recently I picked up some interesting plectrums from a new UK based company called Slick Grip…
These six picks utilise a unique design which is supposed to help wick away moisture and keep the surface nice and grippy. As grip is something I have trouble with I was only too eager to give these innovative Slick Grip picks a good test run.
What’s In the Box?
As soon as I received the package in the mail I could tell that this was a company who put a lot of thought into how they present their product. The picks arrived in a black branded envelope, and the bright pink Slick Grip logo instantly alerted me to what the package contained.
Inside the envelope the attention to small details continued as each pick was safely nestled inside its very own individual packaging! A thick piece of foam houses each pick, which is then cradled by a piece of card and then finally wrapped in a sheet of plastic. It’s a very neat little design and instantly gives the impression that these are more than your average-joe picks.
The range comes in a variety of sizes from 0.45mm all the way up to 2.0mm. The different thicknesses are color coded which makes them very easy to distinguish from each other. Take a look at the close-up image at the end of this article to see exactly what pick sizes are available.
If you take a look at the image below you will see a detailed graphic of the pick design, which is displayed on the back of the packaging.
