one 'BIG ACRYLIC ROUND'
Before ordering, please make sure to read the shipping page!
This is the most technically demanding plectrum to build, designed for the jazz player, crafted from a solid block of tinted high quality optical grade acrylic using the disc sander, the top and bottom arch, bevels and edges must be perfect, then the entire surface is sanded down to a low grit and finally the pick is polished to a high gloss, I then sand both contact surfaces to add more grip, see below video !
I need 40mn of hard work to build one of these picks !
Exquisitely crafted and using a specially formulated high quality grade 'cross-linked cell cast acrylic' made in Switzerland, all Hufschmid cast acrylic picks come with what is known as a "99% Mark free finish", this is the highest quality polishing method and is also the most costly because such a level of finish can only be obtained by hand polishing using various grits and progressively working your way down to the perfect finish.
Carved out from an 8mm thick sheet, lots of work goes into actually shaping all of those bevels, then comes the finish work, hand polished to a high gloss!
The lack of an extreme bevel combined to a large contact surface (8mm thick) and a high molecular material density makes for a very durable pick!
These are not 'simple acrylic picks'
