Description

Want to improve your technique, and liven up your tone?

These plectrums have been designed to require less effort in every stroke, allowing for greater speed and accuracy. The action from string to string requires less movement than traditional flat picks, and the comfortable contours really work with you to get the most out of your tone.

28.5mm x 26mm x 4.6mm

What’s so special about these plectrums?

As many are finding, the specially designed contours feel like they’re holding you, just as you hold them. The best part is that they work for nearly all plectrum holding techniques. Whether you prefer a fingertip contact, well past the knuckle, or anywhere in between, this plectrum will work with you, not against you!

This plectrum is only available in my most durable materials, for outstanding wear resistance, long life and performance. Ultem (polyetherimide) is an advanced engineering plastic with an interesting and diverse range of properties. It is hard, durable, and actually feels sticky to the touch. It has a very unique feeling as it passes over the string, somewhat akin to playing with horn or tortoise shell, and the grip is incredibly secure. It responds well to changes in pick attack, allowing for excellent control of dynamics.

This plectrum was originally designed for Jazz, but it has become a favourite of all kinds of players. Lead players love the way it lightens their grip, and the way it passes over the string. The control is excellent, and it can even show you how to unlock tone you didn’t know you had!

Grip it lightly, and it’s bright without being harsh, and it won’t fall from your fingers. Grip it a little tighter, and it has much more bass and punch. With the BHL Omni tip, single notes are articulate, and strumming is surprisingly easy.

As always, I’m happy to take questions, and help out with selection. Small custom modifications are ok for most purchases, but due to my current workload, I am prioritising completely custom items for those who have already purchased my products. 😉

Cheers

My most ergonomic and high performance design – The HP Plectrum.

Each face is hand carved into a Hyperbolic Paraboloid for maximum comfort and efficiency. The shape holds your fingers comfortably in a horizontal position and prevents vertical position shift. It’s a shape that really wants to be held! Suitable for right and left handed players.

The BHL Omni point has been specially designed for an even response and attack tone whilst playing + or – 15° from a flat picking position. This makes it ideal for jazz and lead guitar playing.
