DIY Guitar Picks

by on Mar.21, 2015, under Instructional, News, Projects, Recommendations

For all you Do-It-Yourself (DIY) guitarists out there, one of my favorite inventions in the Pick-A-Palooza.  With this clever punch you can make almost any reasonable plastic sheet product into a guitar pick.  This makes for a good, eco-friendly operation where you can recycle things  you’d normally throw out and turn them into picks.  Over time, you save a lot of money as well.

Take your old credit cards, for example.  Now you can recycle them into guitar picks rather than run them through a shredder – or meticulously slice them up with a scissors to make sure no one steals your CC number.

Normal everyday things you can turn into picks:

  • Credit Cards
  • CDs
  • DVDs
  • Clear plastic packaging (you know those things that slice YOU up while you’re trying to cut them open?)

With the Pick-a-Palooza you can’t punch things like metals, but if you’re a shredder and pretty handy, you can make aluminum picks like these with a jewelers saw and a file.  It takes awhile, but I made and sold quite a few of these some time ago.

I used Reel to Reel tape flanges as my source material.  Today I would just buy sheet aluminum stock and go to work with a scroll saw.  If you’re interested in my signature shredder picks, drop me a line and maybe I’ll make some for you.  They sound really cool!
