D'Addario Assorted Pearl Celluloid Guitar Picks

Manufacturer: D'Addario

The D'Addario assorted celluloid guitar pick pack is a no-nonsense option for guitarists that run through a lot of picks. The picks are all made out of premium celluloid material and are all .70mm thick and are great for playing both rhythm and lead guitar. These packs also come in 25 pack and 100 pack variations.

Planet Waves Assorted Pearl Celluloid Guitar Picks

Fender Premium Picks Sampler

Manufacturer: Fender

The Fender Premium Picks Sampler contains 24 guitar picks divided into 8 light, 8 medium and 8 heavy gauge picks. The picks are made out of Fender’s premium celluloid material and offer a warm and well-rounded tone. And while this pack isn’t something you are likely to see a seasoned guitarist pick up at his local guitar store, at just $8.49 it’s a great deal for beginner guitarists experimenting with various pick gauges and the tones that they help create.

The picks also come in a variety of colors and styles (although this doesn’t really have any effect on the pick’s playing dynamics) and are also great to have lying around for the occasional jamm session.


ChromaCast CC-SAMPLE-12PK

Manufacturer: ChromaCast

At just $3.15 the ChromaCast 12 pick sampler pack is another great value-for-money pick pack for beginner players experimenting with various pick gauges. The picks come in extra thin, thin, thin/medium, medium, medium heavy and heavy gauges. The 12 pack includes both celluloid picks and Dura picks and are crafted in a classically rounded pick shape, offering a warm sound and smooth picking dynamic.


BoloPick Felt Pick for Ukulele

Manufacturer: BoloPick

If you happen to be a ukulele player, we believe that the BoloPick is the right choice for you. Available in very cheap packages of 6, these picks are specially adjusted for ukuleles, featuring a standard 351 shape, but a significantly smaller size and softer construction.

They come with a standard thickness of 3 mm which happens to work like a charm with ukuleles, securing a mellow, bright and authentic sound.


Bestpriceam® 20 Pcs 0.46mm Celluloid Picks

Manufacturer: Bestpriceam

If you're just looking for a stylish pick at a very affordable price, by all means consult Bestpriceam! Crafted from celluloid, these .46 mm picks come with a size of 31 x 27 x 0.46 mm, featuring a solid build and a very, very low price. If you need disposable picks, we say get one 20-pack of these and never worry about running out of picks again. Neat stuff!
