Hey Clayton Customers! The team here at Clayton USA wants to wish you a Safe and Rockin’ Fourth of July! We hope you enjoy all the awesome mid-summer concerts and parties that are happening! How perfect that one of our fantastic customers recently created and ordered the picks shown below, which look like they have fireworks on them! I believe it is actually an astrological photo that was used for the design background, but they reminded me enough of fireworks to think of them as Independence Day picks! If this year’s celebrations inspire you to create some explosive designs for custom picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com to start making your custom pick art today! _
Check out these custom picks made for the band Nest of Snakes!
The design is a simple black artwork, and it was made on our yellow delrin pick material. Even thought the colors are basic, we liked the intricacy of the design and how it fits really well into the pick shape…they just look cool!

“Nest of Snakes is a trophy case of local talent. It consists of Jason Boten formerly of Superchief, who plays guitar and sings, Larry Enos who also plays with Sons of Walter on bass, Tom Brighton who splits his time with September on guitar and vox, and drummer Derek Deutramont who was formerly with the Albino Spiders.
Their sound is heavy but not all-encompassing. It’s composed of a variety of different influences from all over the rock and roll map. The two tracks I heard brought to mind such classic acts as Deep Purple and Black Sabbath, but I also heard glimpses of early Soundgarden and Motorhead. Despite having a heavy foundation, the music is also rich with melodies, a trait that sometimes gets lost in the Des Moines metal scene.”

This week’s Pick of the Week was made for Darbi Shaun, an up-and-coming Texas Singer/Songwriter. “There are some voices that just cause people to stop and take notice. Darbi Shaun’s unique tone, texture, and emotion does just that. When you experience her music, you immediately know she is doing what she was created to do. At just 17, Darbi Shaun has been honored to open for names such as Mike Eli of the Eli Young Band, Roger Creager, and Walt Wilkins. She just released her second EP titled “Austin” and is currently performing acoustic sets of original music and covers. You can hear her music at www.darbishaun.com Thank you for your interest and support!”

This week’s Pick of the Week is for the band Next September, a new rock/alternative band out of Chicago. They were formed and work almost exclusively over the internet from their homes. But that hasn’t stopped them from gaining attention around the world as promising up-and-comers. Their song “Your Time To Shine” has been featured on ESPN Friday Night Fights as well as many other outlets, and, with the help of Pruemedia, they will be the Featured Artist on Season 1 of Million Dollar Push!! You can check them out at http://www.nextseptember.com/ or https://www.facebook.com/
Next September would like to offer a free pick(made by Steve Clayton) and a free digital download of their debut album to the first 5 people who mention Steve Clayton Picks on their Facebook page!!
The Next September custom guitar picks were made on our carbonate pick material, which is a glossy finish white pick. We loved how visually appealing their logo is and the high level of detail turned out very well. To order your own custom picks, visit www.claytoncustom.com today!

Looking for a premium pick that will stand the test of time? ZZ-Zinc picks are a new Clayton item that was added to our product line this year! These picks are crafted out of genuine Zinc alloy metal. They are made for producing tones that are clear and high, along with punchy bass and unprecedented volume, due to their heavy mass/metal composition. These picks are popular amongst electric, acoustic and bass guitarists alike. To help maintain grip on the picks and prevent slipping since they are metal, we have added a matte finish and a reversed embedded epoxy logo. These are heavy-duty picks that are designed to last throughout years of guitar playing! They are available in both a 1.0mm and 2.0mm gauge. To order your own ZZ-Zinc premium picks, visit http://www.steveclayton.com/premium.php today!
