Make your Pick: The Pick Punch lets guitarists make custom picks
Jan. 10, 2012
Amidst all the chatter of the latest, most innovative gadgetry, it’s easy to forget true innovations can be simple, beautiful solutions to simple, irritating problems. Case in point: the Pick Punch. These simple plastic triangles are the bane of many guitarists. The pick punch solves the problem in a deliciously straightforward way: it lets the guitarist easily make his or her own replacement picks.
It is as easy as taking a gift card, ID card, expired credit card or plastic lid; inserting it in the punch while aligning it at the bottom and pressing down on the handle. A pick-shaped blade slices through the material, and out pops a guitar pick adorned with a MasterCard logo.
