Ti-TEC Black Diamond Titanium Guitar Pick
Guitar picks are a very personal experience. Variations in shape, thickness, and material all have an impact in the way you express yourself while playing. Sometimes it can effect the method in which you play, sometimes it's purely the sound. Which is why although many guitar players may have their favorite pick, it is usually not their only choice. Experimentation is essential in order to expand your creativity.
Using titanium as a foundation for numerous products, we were curious what the effect would be if we were to make a guitar pick from titanium. So we started with one of the most popular shapes and made many prototypes using a variety of different sheet thicknesses. And then we played. And played, and played, and played. Until we settled on what we thought was the best overall material thickness. We then fabricated versions with perforations to test the additional grip performance, as some people may have problems holding a smooth metal pick with sweaty fingers. After countless hours of testing, we finalized a set of 3 top performing picks (one solid and two perforated).
But we didn't stop there. We wanted to offer a guitar pick that no one else could, so we coated each pick with TEC's proprietary Black Diamond finish, which provides an extremely durable, ultra-smooth near black coating. This not only provides the ultimate protection against scratches and dings, but also gives you a one-of-a-kind "feel" during use.
What are users saying about the Ti-TEC picks?
"These picks are perfect for creating a particular kind of tone, percussive in nature. They have excellent articulation and the built in holes make them perfect for keychain carry. You never know when you might forget a pick, and having one on your keychain as a backup can be a lifesaver."
"As a musician/gearhead who plays regularly, I thought there would be nothing surprising about these Ti picks from TEC. However, upon playing with them I immediately noticed a pronounced tighter low end during aggressive palm mutes and seamless integration into high string arpeggios. Very useful tools to have in any musician's library. As a bonus, I doubt they will ever wear out! Kudos to TEC on another breakthrough."
