The Wirething(R) Guitar Pick is a new invention that features a smooth curved wire that picks the string, embedded in an injection molded textured and contoured plastic grip. This gives guitarists the precise clean sound of a metal pick, plus the easy grip, control, and light weight of a plastic pick. The invention has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 5,894,097.

Precision-formed for consistent production
Micro-smooth polished finish for reduced string wear

Stainless steel wire: This is some of the hardest wire available today -- the smooth no-scratch finish will be easier on your guitar strings than conventional metal picks.
Copper wire: This custom-fabricated copper-beryllium alloy wire is extremely hard, and will not be magnetically attracted to electric guitar pickups.
Injection-molded acrylic or nylon
Contoured for thumb shape -- improves grip and comfort
Textured for no-slip control
U.S. Patent No. 5,894,097
Designed and engineered in the USA
Invented by multi-instrumentalist Ken Barry
Clear Acrylic/Copper Wire
Beautiful crystal-clear acrylic with space-age custom fabricated copper-beryllium alloy wire. The copper wire has the advantage that it won't be magnetically attracted to electric guitar pickups.
"The Wirething(R) guitar pick can give guitar players better control, and a different range of sounds and dynamics than regular plastic picks," according to Wirething(R) inventor and Interface Music Corporation president Kenneth Barry. "It could be a useful addition to any guitarist's pick collection."
Gene Bertoncini, guitarist formerly with the Johnny Carson Tonight Show Band, comments, "I love the pick. I definitely approve. It's got a nice warm but pointed attack." Danny Embrey, guitarist formerly with Sergio Mendes, states, "It has a real positive feel on the strings. It's easy to control, and I like the sound."
