You may have noticed that we started offering Glow in the Dark custom guitar picks about 2 months ago. Since the very hour they went live on our website, we have been getting tons of orders for them. Way more than we ever anticipated. Here is a picture of a few of the ones we shipped out yesterday. Our Glow in the Dark picks can only be printed with black ink. In the dark the black ink allows you to still see the image when it glows. I will try to get a picture of what the look like in the dark soon.
I have been asked so many times how long our line was at NAMM to meet Kyle Gass. We do know that it spanned a couple of isles and was extremly long. We were lucky enough to recently obtain some video footage that shows at least half of the length of the line. The other half of the line goes to the right, and was broken up in order to allow traffic to flow by. Click on the picture below to view the Quicktime movie.
We have been getting lots of requests to put up pictures of our 2010 NAMM booth. I finally got around to getting them on here. We had a double decker booth this year with a lounge at the top. In addition we had 2 sound proof offices to conduct meetings in. As anyone who has ever been to NAMM knows, it is very loud! Without the sound proof rooms it can be quite impossible to get any business done, especially in Hall C were we are located.
We made a ton of picks for the yummy Moe’s Southwest Grill last week. I am a little late on this post as we made them and shipped them while I was at NAMM. Moe’s had a really tight deadline, but we got them off to them on time! One of our specialties is making very tight deadlines. These picks were make to promote their www.beadeadringer.com site. Moe’s is holding a contest to forever me immortalized on their walls. If you look like a rock star then you can win! So check out the site and submit your photo! If you really like their picks you can buy some of them from the merchandise section of their website along with some t-shirts!
a signing for all his fans. Hundreds and hundreds of his fans
showed up to meet him and get
an autograph with a line that spaned over 3 aisles! Some fans waited in line over an hour to be one of the
first to meet him. Kyle did not disappoint, and signed for 3 straight hours without stopping! Kyle has been a long time user of Clayton Acetal Rounded Triangle .63mm picks. Clayton has been doing custom imprinting for Kyle Gass and Jack Black for over 10 years now! Kyle came by to promote his band Trainwreck and their new album The Wreckoning. He signed Trainwreck posters and gave out limited edition Tenacious D: In the Pick of Destiny picks with his printed signature on the back. Not to mention he was also asked to sign lots of Tenacious D memorabilia. Kyle Gass caused such a commotion at NAMM it required 8 security guards to keep the crowd under control! Keep checking back for a blog about Kyle Gass’ band Trainwreck and a video about why Kyle just won’t rest!
We just got done doing a large pick necklace order for both Cirque du Soleil Chris Angel and Viva Elvis. These are both amazing shows, so next time you are in Vegas make sure to check them out!
Below are descriptions of each of the shows:
“Viva ELVIS®, a harmonious fusion of dance, acrobatics and live music, is a tribute to the life and music of Elvis Presley. Nostalgia, modernity and raw emotion provide the backdrop for his immortal voice and the exhilaration and beauty of his music.” Click to visit the Viva Elvis Site
“CRISS ANGEL® Believe™ will be a haunting exploration deep inside the inventive mind of mystifier Criss Angel as he hovers between the land of the living and a surreal world uniquely woven together by the distinctive imaginations of Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil.” Click to visit the Chris Angel Believe Site
