Stone Guitar Picks from StoneWorks Picks : What’s Left Now?

What materials are now left to make guitar picks in order to always get more tone variations from guitars? I’m asking because I might try to build picks one day or another…

Anyway, the StoneWorks Picks made of stone looks cool! Below you will find a video of the Tone King presenting some of these on Youtube! StoneWorks picks are quite beautiful though some models are a bit expensive but I guess this is the price for handmade shaping. Too bad the Tone King didn’t upload a video showing the picks with an acoustic guitar or clean tones but hey, he is the Tone King! That’s how he plays!

In the history section of StoneWorks Picks, Mike Stone (that’s his real name) relates the story of his buddy who lost a fingertip, and then had troubles to hold standard guitar picks. And that’s how he created his first stone guitar pick. Interestingly enough, the story behind StoneWorks Picks is pretty similar to the story behind the Niglo Picks that I told you about several months ago.

Anyway, if you want to see more of this very nice polished stone guitar picks, you will find them on StoneWorks Picks… And for the video of The Tone King, it is right below…

Seriously… Do you see any other type of material that could be used for guitar picks? I once tried to make guitar picks out of banana skin but they were sliding too much, and played way too fast!!

  1. j’ai déjà parlé des médiators en silicone pour jouer de la basse, le son est excellent, avec un touché doigt et une précision médiator…

    et des mediators en verre, ça existe ?

  2. Et un médiator en os, avec une tête de mort gravée ? Pour jouer du death metal…

  3. Je joue quasiment exclusivement avec des médiators en coquillage voilà encore une matière intéressante :o) La particularité c’est le son plus mordant que le plastique ou le bois. Le gros inconvénient c’est que si tu fais un café concert avec un sol en carrelage et que tu laisse tomber ton médiator il finit en éclats un peu partout

    Sinon je joue aussi maintenant avec un N4 de chez Daniel ca le fait bien aussi mais dans un autre registre

  4. @ Bertram : oui je me souviens de ton commentaire sur les médiators en silicone! Ca doit être pas mal en effet pour la basse!

    @ Geekariste : yep en os j’ai déjà entendu parler de ça chez Dugain au moins! Le coup de la tête de mort lui irait bien en effet!

    @ Jipes : Coquillage j’ai eu l’occasion d’en essayer une fois mais c’est vrai que c’est bien fragile!

  5. les médiators en pierre existe déjà depuis un longtemps chez dugain non ??

  6. Great post! Thanks for the plug. I got a chuckle out of “but hey, he is the Tone King! That’s how he plays!”

    Glad this topic / story got more attention … Mike Stone is a really cool guy, and he’s got passion for what he does, and includes his family in on his passion, hobby and now business.

    Rock ON!!

  7. @ Ludo : Certes oui… Mais c’est bien de voir de nouvelles têtes et de nouvelles marques ! 😉

  8. @ TTK : Hey glad you liked the post… I’m always looking for this kind of new stuff, and I do like when they come with a story to tell ! 🙂 Keep up the great stuff at TTK… Rock on mate! \m/
