Last week we had a Facebook contest to share your band’s story on our blog, the winner was Aaron from Story of a Ghost ! Story of a ghost began their musical journey from the release of their single “Akimbo”, based loosely on the May 22 2011 tornado. Akimbo, was recorded in their home town of Joplin, Mo by producer Jerrod Naff, at Zombielife Studios. It has been featured on radio stations in their home state, as well as on the 2011 compilation cd for magazine, “The Dead Timez”. They are currently in the studio working on their self-titled e.p “Story of a ghost” that is expected for release on ITUNES and AmazonMP3 in early 2012. A national tour for 2012 is definitely in the works. (Bio) links: www.reverbnation.com/storyofaghost

We are so excited to share with you some photos of our 15 passenger van that is touring this year with the Van’s Warped Tour. It also features guitar picks from some of our endorsed artists that we were able to get printed on the van. Be sure to check it out at any the Warped Tour dates!
Below are some samples of recent custom drumstick orders. We chose these two since they chose colors so different from the other. The Marina drumsticks used some beautiful pastel lavender and turquoise colors. The ASPHALT shows how great red and black are paired together, of course . We offer full color and single color imprint on our custom drumsticks. We can imprint any color, except for white ink. Something to keep in mind is that anything that is white in your design will become the color of the drumsticks. Single color starts at just $44 for 5 pairs, and full color at only $59 for 5 pairs. We also ship drumsticks worldwide just like our custom picks! All our custom drumsticks are printed on the finest American Hardwoods in size 2b and the standard 16″ in length.

We wanted to share our new products with you. The first is Duraplex, this material has been in the guitar pick market for years! We use the highest form of the material to resist notiching and give ultimate strength. We offer these picks in 6 gauges and 3 shapes! Next we have Exotic picks. These picks are available in 4 different materials. Sheesham wood is an amazing organic material that will leave you shocked at the warm tone it creates. This pick also has a natural wood grain vertically down the pick that helps tone better flow from your strings while adding strength to the pick. It also features tapered edges that allows for a swift release from your strings. Coconut Shell is a durable and bright organic material that creates increased volume during play and is very dense and tough. Each of the Coconut picks are hand-made with a smooth polish on one side and an indented, roughed grip on the other. Blond Wood will create a beautiful rich tone and is great for playing with when you need a nice rhythm bass as it eliminates brassy tones. The last of the Exotic picks are the Horn which is shockingly bright and durable! It has a transparent brown and amber look. It also has contoured edges and a polished surface that is extremely fast off of your strings. Ever wish you could have a card of Clayton picks you can carry in your pocket, pull it out, and punch out a pick anywhere? Well now you can! We now offer Pocket Picks that come in 6 different gauges, and come in 6 different colors that are denoted by gauge. They are made out of our customized polycarbonate material for a comfortable feel that produces a clean and smooth sound with soft tones. Also, if you like speed picking then you will love our Pocket Picks! Our Liquid Sun picks are so popular we also added two new lines of picks featuring more artwork by artist Chad Carothers (www.chadartworld.com). Eyes Wide Open are influenced by cartoons, music and pop culture and are printed on our White Carbonate material for not only good looks but great sound!

The Steve Clayton team is proud to announce that we have been included in a blog for Live Musician Central. Live Musician Central is a site that provides resources for performing musicians, including information about being in a band, gigs, band equipment, and how to improve live band skills. The blog entry dedicated to Steve Clayton, Inc., referred to our acetal picks, and the reasons why our they are chosen over other brands. The main reasons include that our acetals have a sweat-resistant surface, they are long-lasting, and they have a good hardness that allows for a sharp attack when playing. Our acetal picks are available with our logo on them, or as a material for custom design.
