The evolutionary concept of the Sik Pik is that “the face of the pick should be perpendicular to the strings, not parallel,” as stated in the Utility Patent Application (filed 09/07/09). By using the side of the pick, the Sik Pik does not click or hang on the strings as a standard plectrum. This provides a smooth round tone, gliding across the strings.

The Sik Pik came through observation. Watching how players (like George Benson and Jorge Strunz) used their picks in a unique playing style to achieve incredible results. Seeing the seemingly effortless way in which these players traversed the strings. The feel, the dynamics, and the sound are the fundamentals that need to be different to create a strikingly different result. The Sik Pik is the smallest change that can be made to create a profound effect. A real change in pick shape (not just making it thicker, though that can help) brings about a profound change. An evolutionary change is not a simple thought, but a foundational change that creates a positive difference in how the pick is utilized. Seeing the Sik Pik and understanding its concept brings together two of the elements of how this difference is not only made manifest, but made effective. The third and most profound element is demonstration.

The U.S. Design Patent No. D603,449, Guitar Plectrum (flat pick) and U.S. Design Patent No. D603,891, Guitar Plectrum (thumb pick) were granted on November 3rd and 10th (respectively), 2009. The Utility Patent, U.S. Patent Appl. Serial No.12/537,633, Pick for Stringed Musical Instruments, was filed August 7, 2009 and is pending. From page 5, in Summary of the Invention, of the Utility Patent application, “In the design of the pick of the invention, an outer extent of the pick portion of the pick body is angled downwardly with respect to the gripping portion of the pick body such that the pick plane is angularly inclined at an angle greater than about 30 degrees with respect to the gripping plane. This enables orientation of the pick portion of the pick body at a near right angle relative to the plane of a string being struck while maintaining a near parallel orientation between the longitudinal axis of the musician's forearm and the string.” In other words, “Play on the Edge.”

"This is the greatest new guitar product I've seen in 20 years--I'm sure they're going to be huge. Congratulations!" Best, Robert

 

"One thing I noticed as well was that your picks hold up extremely well and the point doesn't wear down hardly at all!!" Thanks again Frank, Colin 

 

"It's not taking much time to get use to them though. They feel just right and seem to fit my hand perfectly." Jamie

With the standard plectrum, the attack of the note results in an irregular vibrational pattern and the note registering sharp. The string loses some of its initial erratic energy and moves to a normal elliptical pattern and flattens to a stable note on the tuner. With the Sik Pik, the plucked string results in a regular vibrational pattern from the attack of the note to the end of the decay of the note.

You have never seen, felt, or heard anything like it. The guitar pick has now, finally, gone through an evolutionary change.

 

The sound difference between a regular pick and a Sik Pik. With the standard plectrum, the attack of the note results in an irregular vibrational pattern and the note registering sharp. The string loses some of its initial erratic energy and moves to a normal elliptical pattern and flattens to a stable note on the tuner. With the Sik Pik, the plucked string results in a regular vibrational pattern from the attack of the note to the end of the decay of the note.
