ChickenPicks Guitar Picks Review
ChickenPicks are a “boutique” style pick coming out of the Netherlands. These are not only thicker than a regular pick but they are also made of a hardened material that will give you better tone. One of the real benefits of ChickenPicks is you don’t have to hold it as hard to execute your picking, it seems to decrease pressure on your rhythm hand because the pick is actually doing the work, rather than relying on the regular tension of your hand on regular style picks.
Eppo sent out a pack of these for me to test and he now has a new customer. These picks feel great in the hand and even after 10 minutes, I knew they were going to be something I could use down the road. The benefit of the materials is that it will last 10x-20x longer than most regular picks. They are more expensive than your regular Jim Dunlop picks for example, but they will last forever as long as you don’t lose them ;).
Like all music gear – sound, feel, tone is all subjective which is exactly what these are too. I have been using the same picks for about 12 years until now. Chicken picks are cool and I really think having less rhythm hand fatigue is a real positive that really makes sense for people who play a lot. Check the out online here as well in my new intheblues tone shop online store.
