GT Plectrums' Micarta Jazz guitar pick is an excellent choice for guitarists who desire a superior playing experience than standard, cheap guitar picks can provide. This handcrafted, boutique plectrum features an exceptionally grippy texture and stunning patterns that are exclusive to micarta. Polished bevels provide an exceptionally smooth, snappy attack that adds clarity and brightness. At 2.5mm, it's just thick enough to allow for a comfortable, effortless grip without sacrificing versatility across genres and playing styles.
The Micarta Jazz guitar pick is an excellent choice for those looking to expand their pick collection, as well as those who are just beginning to experiment with boutique guitar picks. Its unique shape doesn't just look good. The horns provide extra stability by reducing pick rotation and for those truly experimental guitarists, they can even be used to pluck the strings.
What is Micarta?
Micarta is a blend of resin and multiple layers of canvas cloth pressed together with high pressure and heat. The result is a super hard, but light and porous material that is incredibly durable. Micarta is highly resistant to extreme temperatures, moisture, and the potential to become brittle over time like other plastics. These characteristics make it suitable for a wide variety of heavy-duty applications from propeller blades to automotive parts, hard hats, and much more. It's textured surface and nearly indestructible nature make it an ideal material for creating guitar picks that are comfortable and last for ages.

Benefits of Thick Guitar picks
1. Superior comfort and ergonomics- the additional thickness and mass promotes a more relaxed hand, therefore reducing fatigue, risk of injury, and overall effort required for technical precision
2. Improved attack and striking consistency- the bevels on a thicker pick are much easier to strike consistently than a thinner pick. Think about it like striking the edge of a surface, such as a desk, with a flat object, like a folder, versus an object that forms a point, like a small cone. The cone shaped object is going to a much better job of pushing the string aside than a flat shape. The margin for error in striking with a thin pick is much smaller than it is with a thick guitar pick
3. Enhanced tones- better consistency and attack creates better tones. It's as simple as that. We've all heard the saying "tone is in the fingers". And while your fingers don't control the gain in your amp, they do have a massive impact on your overall sound. Being able to accurately and consistently pick a note is a huge part of developing one's skills as a guitarist
4. Unique style- this one is fairly self-explanatory. Adding a boutique plectrum to your gear collection is a statement of individuality and maturity as a guitar player. Many of us began our journey as guitarists by practicing the same songs, on the same guitars, with the same amps, but as we improve, we discover what makes our tone and style unique. Why should it be any different for the plectrums we use?
