The original 'ANVIL' POLYCARBONATE
Before ordering, please make sure to read the shipping page!
Introduced in 2013, I originally designed this 8mm thick plectrum for the customers suffering from arthritis, this giant pick helps release muscle tension.
I've been experimenting with 'Aircraft Grade Polycarbonate' and had the idea to build this 'drop plectrum' with the material.
I've never heard of a 'handmade polycarbonate pick' before (not to be confused with cast acrylic), probably because it is MUCH MUCH harder to shape and polish and the material is also approx 35% more expensive than cast acrylic, however the result is fantastic, this is the 'stiffest pick' I have ever built and the material is very durable!
The 'polycarbonate drop' comes with satin finger contact surfaces because the grip is fantastic, actually superior to satin cast acrylic, the sides are polished to a high gloss!
By reducing the initial application of force, the ‘Hufschmid Anvil’ plectrum design naturally reduces playing effort. Combined with the decreased amplitude required to traverse the strings and a more relaxed grip as a result of the shape and thickness, this unique plectrum design helps to improve picking precision and optimizes applied strength, helping the player to minimize wasted energy and motion.
The unique design of the ‘Hufschmid Anvil’ offers a better bio-mechanical grip to the player who finds his picking hand to be more relaxed while enjoying an overall improved playing sensation due to its improved ergonomics.
The ANVIL is the result of many hours of research to perfect the design and feel of the 'traditional plectrum designs'.
