I'm thrilled!


Joking aside, I had to buy this after my friend sent me a video of him playing a pad-like part through some delay and reverb and it sounded so cool. I'd never heard anything like that so I had to buy it!

An odd little toy


This is a hammer action plectrum for guitar, it turns your guitar in effect into a hammer dulcimer. You can use it in three ways. First, striking with the hammer head, which will strike two or three strings. You can get some interesting effects by playing with the bounce. Second, striking with the flat back, which will strike all strings (make sure your angle is parallel to the strings). This will make a simultaneous attack, a chord without strumming. Third, you can grip it near the top and use it more like a normal pick. It will be great for a percussive guitarist. The tone it makes is bright and punchy, but might be an odd technique for a traditionalist. Great for experimenting with, and creating new sounds. Those with disabilities, arthritis, or weak grip might consider using it as a pick they can hold with all your fingers.
