Pick of the Week, Todd Simpson and Mojo Child

This week we selected a good example of a pick on our Ultem material. We love this pick, because it uses all kind of different shades of brown on it.  Ultem can only be imprinted with either brown, red or black. These colors look best with its Amber hue.  Todd Simpson is a very accomplished musician.  He has shared the state with the Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker, Huey Lewis,Paul Thorn and Phil Lesh and friends. Todd plays blues combined with a southern rock vibe.  He even recently preformed at the Whiskey A Go Go in L.A.  For more information on Todd and his high energy band check out the website: www.toddsimpsonandmojochild.com.

Pick of the Week, 6:AM!

This week we selected a guitar pick with a fun alarm clock on it.  We love this graphic, because it really fits the shape of the guitar pick.   This pick is printed our our White Delrin material, which really make the clock stand out. 6:AM is an all original hard rock band based out of San Jose, 6:AM has been rocking the bay area for over 7 years. Their music is an obvious mixture of each of the member’s unique musical style and influences…ranging from classic rock, 80’s metal, Straight ahead rock of the 90’s and far beyond. The band’s musical D.N.A. is made up of solid Bass and Drums, Catchy, dirty Guitars riffs and rich powerful vocals. If you are in the bay area make sure to check this band out!

Clayton Custom Pick of the Week!

Here at Clayton, Inc, we have decided to feature a custom pick each week from now forward! We think this is a great way to showcase many of the great picks we make for bands every day.  Keep checking in each week to see a new featured pick and band from us.

This week we selected a pick we made for the Nancy Kenyon Band.  We loved how colorful and detailed this pick turned out on our white delrin .80mm material. It is a great example that shows what amazing detail and color we can produce onto a guitar pick.  We also enhanced this pick by using glossy ink to really make the graphic “pop” on the pick. We had a great time learning more about Nancy Kenyon and her high energy female country style.   She has been doing acoustic style shows for over 15 years! Now within the past few years she has a full band and is starting to do big venues. Her next notable show will be at Jillian’s in Albany, NY, which will be an after party for Carrie Underwood’s Albany concert.  It begins at 11pm if any of you are interested in seeing this amazing band!
