Product Description

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.

Wire Features:
.035 in. diameter steel or copper-alloy wire

Precision-formed for consistent production

Micro-smooth polished finish for reduced string wear

Spring-tempered for extra-long life and durability

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.

Grip Features:
Injection-molded acrylic or nylon

Contoured for thumb shape -- improves grip and comfort

Textured for no-slip control

Invention Features:
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."

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A great pick i cant believe i lived so long without it"
Sound: this Wirething has awesome crunchy attack for metal & sounds sweet when im leisurely strumming too. Ease of Use: i may never use another pick it is durable made my strat sound chunky and as for speedmetal picking it is the best & easiest to use pick i ever used in my 30 yrs playing. i used to use heavy tortex pix but i wore out or lost 20 of those a month. ive been playing with this pick for six months and cherish it so much i havent lost it even tho i used to throw my pick at the end of every jam. i dont wanna lose it so im ordering a couple more today Quality: highest quality just dont lose it cuz its clear except for wire Value: i would have spent at least $20 on picks so far this year but i spent $5 for this one which sounds as good now if not better than when i got it The Wow Factor: this is a great invention & i always will have it in my life kind of like my wife, my music, the great outdoors and the Green Bay Packers Overall: what else can i say
Style of Music: Rock

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
