Tone Max Titanium Guitar Picks
Tone Max starts a Kickstarter campaign to fund their upcoming Titanium Guitar Picks that feature different styles.
Gifts for Guitar Players
There are currently 11 different designs that are divided into six classic and five jazz style shapes. Each pick comes with the same thickness and size used by other manufacturers - the main difference is that each pick is crafted using pure Titanium.
Randy Baechle, the man behind the campaign, has been playing guitar for most of his life. And after more than a decade of selling musical merchandise on Ebay, Randy is now taking his first steps into manufacturing and selling his own musical product.
Quoting Randy Baechle: "I have always wanted to start my own line of products and have many ideas for the future. I think Kickstarter is great because it provides individuals like me an opportunity to create their own products with the help from people like you. Selling musical instruments online is fun but developing an idea into a reality is very rewarding and exciting. With your help of funding this project I will be able to finalize development and reach the minimum order to manufacture these awesome picks."
The product he decided to work on is the humble pick, but giving it a unique twist by utilizing Titanium. Known in chemical circles as Ti, this metal has low density but maintains high strength, which is essentially what guitar picks require. Used in aircraft construction, medical implants and space exploration, these Titanium picks are expected to perform well and last a lifetime
Each pick is said to have a polished sheen, great grip-ability and smooth edges. Rand even sampled the pick's grip by picking one up with just his thumb and shaking it off without it falling. This increased grip is said to allow for a more relaxed picking hand.
Based on the video, the pick brings with it an attack sound similar to other metal picks. Unfortunately the pick was not used in other styles like rock and metal, which may benefit from the extra "zing" that the picks add to the mix.
Aside from being reliable, the picks feature several carved designs. The six classic style graphics include a Skull, Lightning Bolt, Flame, Cross, Iron Cross and a Lightning Bolt going through a Heart. The five jazz style graphics feature a Skull, Lightning Bolt, Flame, Iron Cross and a plain solid Titanium version. Since the picks look great, Baechle added a small hole should you choose to use them as eye catching accessories.
Randy is hoping to raise $5000 to get the production going, check out his Tone Max Titanium Guitar Picks at Kickstarter.
