      D'Addario Planet Waves Satriani Chrome Dome Pick 4-Pack (105620827)
Availability:  


Create those alien Satch-like sounds!

The Chrome Dome Pick, designed and used by Joe Satriani, allows you to create new and exciting "not of this earth" sounds. Just pick, scrape, scratch, hammer, and drag your Chrome Dome pick to make sounds just like Joe or to create your own soundscapes. 4 exclusive Satriani picks are included with each Chrome Dome pick for a total of five picks.
Some of Joe techniques using the Chrome Dome pick include:
Holding The Pick Upside Down
Try holding the pick upside down and scraping the wound strings with small movements, back and forth, just as they come over their respective saddles for a kind of "mellotron strings" sound. You can play harmonies by applying this technique to two adjacent strings simultaneously.
Middle Eastern Effect
For a Middle Eastern effect, strike individual strings using a hammer-like technique just about a 1/4" away from the bridge. This adds a microtonal sound to each note you play, and can be an interesting exotic touch to single note lines.
Metal Pick
Brian May gets a great sound using an old British coin as a pick and you can too, using the Chrome Dome just as you would a standard pick. The increased mass of this metal pick, detailed with polished, beveled edges, makes for a thick, smooth picking tone.
Old-School-Computer-Gone-Crazy Sound
To get that old-school-computer-gone-crazy sound, first add some gain to your amp setting. With your fretting hand mute the strings on the fretboard. Then using any edge of the Chrome Dome, drag it across the strings, up and down, between the bridge pickup and anywhere up the neck of the guitar.
Weird Bad-Robot Tone
A variation on Tip No. 4 is to use the long edge of the Chrome Dome, sideways, and make contact with two, or, three strings at the same time. With, or, without moving the pick when it's on the strings this technique creates a weird bad-robot tone.
Super-Glissando Scrapes
For super-glissando scrapes the Chrome Dome delivers a bright, slippery sound with almost no feeling of friction against the strings. The polished metal edges create a more dramatic and melodic scraping sound when compared to a standard pick.
A Cool Record-Scratching Effect
You can get a cool record-scratching effect by muting the strings on the neck of the guitar with your fretting hand while scraping the wound strings in the guitar's pick-up area with the edge of the Chrome Dome. Move the pick in short, quick, back and forth rhythmic phrases to simulate a DJ's technique.

    As reviewed by Harry Snyder on 6/3/2009

    I really like this metal pick. It has a very nice softer tone that is still loud. I was surprised when I first used it. There are also some other cool sounds that come out when you use it. It comes with 4 other picks (plastic), 2 medium and 2 heavy. They have very nice graghics.
