354.5 in contemporary Tortoise Calico translucent Galalith with foam silicone grip cushions


354.5 in contemporary pebbled cherry Galalith with foam silicone grip cushions

A hybrid line from the Meantone pen, which sits halfway between the widely familiar 351 shape and the 358 that remained in vintage obscurity. 

These are slender shoulders, which give this plectrum its vintage appearance; if you don’t use the shoulders, lose them. 

The foam silicone grip cushions are, like several of the Meantone characteristics, an acquired taste, but they prove to be quite versatile and adjustable to the liking and needs of individual users.

This Tortoise Calico Galalith is most likely of modern manufacture. There is no tonal difference with vintage Galalith, and that translucence is a thing to behold.

foam silicone grip cushions

The foam silicone grip cushions are also inspired by several vintage picks from the 1930s, but they were completely reinvented using a modern material and application: the foam silicone is probably more durable and adjustable than the original rubber grips. And quite a lot softer.

The cushions are adjustable in height, they can almost lay flush with the surface of the plectrum, or they can be raised to a millimeter of even more, which makes the plectrum feel thicker than it really is, players with joint- or muscle issues could well find a solution with these grips.

Because of their construction, these plectra are very much directional: you play with the tip, and you hold it by the grip cushions. That’s it.

All in all a very interesting player.

Shipping Policy

The plectra you see in the shop are basically ready to go, but I will want to check them one more time, polish up, package and all that. Please allow 1-3 business days to ship them out.

Refund Policy

I realise that a plectrum is a very personal thing, and I designed most of my shapes to my liking, both in appearance and in performance. If, for whatever reason, you don't like your Meantone plectrum, you are welcome to send it back to me, in the same condition as it reached you. Upon receipt of the plectrum I will refund you.

But in all honesty, it's simply cheaper and easier to keep it in your collection, and who knows, you might change your mind. It happens.

Cancellation / Return / Exchange Policy

You can cancel your Meantone order and be refunded, provided I have not sent the order out yet.
