Most guitarists will agree a guitar pick is an invaluable tool to assist in making beautiful music. They will also agree that since picks are small, lightweight and easy to lose, a good pick holder is a necessary accessory to keep them organized and easily accessible.
If you’re rocking out on stage in front of a big crowd, the last thing you want is to be hunting for a pick at a crucial moment. Likewise, if you’re at home practicing and perfecting your sound, having a pick holder ensures you don’t have to interrupt your concentration by searching for a pick. Many musicians have dozens of guitar picks at any one time, so having a convenient way to store them just makes good sense.
When it comes to storing your picks, there are a number of different options. Do you need to have a pick holder while on stage? If so, the Dunlop Microphone Stand Pick Holder fastens onto a mic stand or boom mic to keep all your picks within easy reach during a performance. If you’re in the middle of a song and drop your pick- no problem! Just reach for another one without missing a beat.
Maybe you spend a lot of time on the road and want a totally compact and portable way to carry your picks anytime, anywhere. With Perri’s Leather Guitar Pick Key Chain, you can carry your keys and your picks all in one convenient spot. It easily fits in your pocket or jacket for access anytime you need to grab a pick. If you enjoy the occasional impromptu acoustic performance around a campfire, having a pick holder keychain would be a terrific option as well. Equally portable and lightweight would be a handheld pick holder like The Dunlop Scotty Pick Holder that simply slides into your gig bag or tucks inside your pocket. It has a spring-loaded mechanism so a new pick is always immediately available. Whatever your preference is, there is a pick holder for you.
Most guitarists probably realized the importance of a pick holder the moment they really needed a pick and couldn’t find one! Whether you own five picks or fifty, having a compact pick holder during a practice session or a live show is sure to make your musical life easier.
