New Sharp Picks!

We have expanded our Acetal line of picks with 3 new shapes! We now offer our Acetal in Sharp Standard, Sharp Triangle, and Sharp Teardrop.  Get an extra edge with these picks that are made from our renowned Acetal material. Strength is key to the ultimate performance. The composition of Acetal gives you just enough stiffness to give you those killer power chords, but has just enough give so that you’re not busting strings left and right. Plus this pick has a matte surface that prevents it from moving or slipping in-between your fingers. These are great for speed picking and fast riffs! We also offer them in all 8 gauges for each shape. Check them out here http://steveclaytonstore.com/product-category/guitar-picks/acetal-sharp/.

Memorial Day/Camo Picks

The team here at Clayton would like to wish all of you a happy and safe Memorial Day Weekend! It’s great to have an extra day to play and enjoy the approaching summer weather, but it’s also important for remembering and honoring the heroes of our time, both past and present. That being said, we would like to feature our Camo picks in today’s post!

Camouflage is a pattern used to hide an object or person within a natural environment, but these picks stand out with their great playing and sound quality! Available in 12-packs, Camo picks (medium gauge) can be purchased through our site at http://www.steveclayton.com/camo.php!

Don’t Forget Our Slides!

As a company that specializes in guitar picks and custom picks, it is sometimes overlooked that we have many other amazing guitar accessory products to offer! One of these is our Brass Socket Slide.  This slide has the same type of ridged interior that would be found in a tool socket, which musicians have been known to use in lieu of a guitar slide because the ridges keep it locked on your finger. However, actual tool sockets tend to be heavy on one end, so Clayton USA came up with the Socket Slide solution! With equalized weight on both ends of the slide, the result is consistent balance, weight, and tone. Specifically, Clayton USA chose to make the slide brass for enhanced quality and sustainability of the tone. Plus, as if this weren’t enough, a cut-out relief has been added for extra comfort while playing.

Check out these amazing slides and order one today at http://steveclaytonstore.com/product/brass-socket-slides/!

We are also offering two entirely new materials: Paddock and Wedge Wood.  Paddock picks are made for creating a warm, loud and earthy tone off of your strings, while the Wedge Woods are formulated to create a strikingly bright sound.

We carry Pro Lemon polish that will replenish the essential oils in your guitar without the odors and harsh chemicals of other polishes. When used, it will clean and condition the finish of any wooden instrument…so try it on your ukulele too! 😉

The other polish that we offer is called Pro Shine. This cleans and finishes your guitar with a beautiful shine without any build-up. It is non-toxic and is made from all natural and organic oils.

Which White?

Over the years, Clayton, USA has added more and more pick options to our custom guitar pick line. I have realized that, currently, we offer five different white guitar pick options for custom printing, and some of you may be wondering which white pick material will be best for you?

Here is a quick guide to help you out!

1. White Delrin Picks: These are basic, bright white picks, similar to tortex material. They have a semi-gloss finish. They work best with dark, bright, and bold colors for custom designs. Black print is the best for this material.

2. Acetal Picks: Some customers choose acetal for custom picks because they have already tried our regular Clayton acetal picks and love them! Acetal picks are professional grade; known for having an excellent grip to them. They work well with a variety of colors for designs, as long as the shades are not too light. They are semi-transparent, so you want to keep this in mind for two-sided designs. They also can support full bleed backgrounds (except black) and photos.

3. Eco Picks: Eco picks are playable guitar picks, though they are not as durable as some of our other materials because they are a biodegradable plastic. However, if you are getting picks purely for promotional use, or give-aways, they are awesome because they can support absolutely ANY artwork. We have done photos, light color shades, high detail designs, and full coverage backgrounds, and they always turn out beautifully on Eco material!

4. White Pearl Picks: Our white pearl material is distinctive because it is marbleized, and has a glossy finish. These picks also work great with a wide variety of colors and can support light color shades (even light grey). You will just want to be aware that the marbleized quality will show through in the design that is printed on them (unless it is black print).

5. Carbonate Picks: Carbonate material is plain white, like white delrin, but with a gloss finish like white pearl. Carbonate, like white delrin, works best with bright and bold colors for the designs. We offer carbonate picks as our less-than-100 pick option… You can get custom carbonate picks in sets of 30 or 60, while our other white pick options have a minimum order quantity of 100.

Knock on Wood

Scatter3Check out these awesome faux-wood custom guitar picks! One of our fabulous Clayton customers placed an order for custom picks with a design that had a wood background and the silhouette of a gecko on it. We determined that the design turned out the best when printed on our Eco pick material. The crazy thing is that when they have the wood print on them they actually feel like wooden picks! The consistency of the Eco material is like that of a light wood material. We thought it was so cool that they turned out that way! Also, the overbleed option was used so that you can hardly tell that the pick is white underneath the print. To order your own custom guitar picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com. Eco picks are new to our custom pick line; give them a try!

Colorific

The design for these guitar picks immediately caught my eye because of the detailed art and fearless use of color. Instead of having the text and grim reaper logo in just a simple black on white, the customer chose to have these picks really catch the eye! The design was made on our carbonate guitar pick material. Carbonate is one of the newer materials available in our custom pick line. The picks are bright white, with a glossy finish, and we have found that they work very nicely with bright colors, which is why this design turned out so well. To order your own custom picks, visit www.claytoncustom.comColor!

Spiketastic

Are you looking for the quality of pick that you have come to expect from the Clayton brand, but with some extra attack for those speed riffs? Look no further than our Clayton USA Spike series. Available in 3 different shapes and 3 different gauges, these picks possess extra sharp edges and pointed tips that will allow you to get that killer attack you’ve been dying to unleash. Also, the Spikes are made out of the same pick material as our Ultem Gold series, so that you know they have the strength to stand the test of time, even after endless nights of hard-core rocking out. To order your Spike picks, visit http://www.steveclayton.com/spike.php today!

Shine On…

Sometimes we get so caught up in featuring our different guitar pick and custom pick items, we forget to showcase our other guitar accessories! For example we offer two types of guitar polish; Pro Lemon Oil Polish and Pro Shine guitar polish. You may be wondering what the difference is between these two items and what would work best for you. Here is some further info:

Pro Lemon is an oil-based shine. It can be used to polish your guitar or piano, even your furniture, and condition your fret board.

The Pro Shine guitar polish is special, as it will not lead to any wax build-up from continual usage.

Both are non-toxic. Be sure to shake guitar polish before applying. Both products offer the same high quality finish for your guitar; it is just a matter of personal preference for which one is chosen.

To order your Pro Lemon or Pro Shine polish, visit http://www.steveclayton.com/polish.php today! Both items are available for only $4.98 per bottle!
