Our mission is to provide the highest quality hand-finished guitar, mandolin, ukelele, and dulcimer picks at affordable prices. Made from the highest quality tonewoods such as rosewood and olive wood, our hardwood guitar picks look great, have a wonderful texture in your fingers, and, most importantly, improve the sound of your stringed instrument by producing a warmer, mellower sound. And with our patent-pending process that infuses a layer of silk (easily the strongest of natural fibers), our picks give the musician the flex that is not available in any other hardwood picks. See why our picks will quickly become your guitar pick of choice.
What's Different about La Luna Sound?
In a word, silk! There are many picks including hardwood picks on the market -- made from ivory, bone, marble & granite, even hemp! To our knowledge, ours is the ONLY patented hardwood pick. We take the time and effort to carefully place a layer of silk fabric between two layers of the finest hardwoods we can find. Silk is the strongest natural fiber available and provides the perfect inner layer to allow the hardwood layers to permanently attach to each other, creating a guitar pick that is both flexible and durable. The warm feel of wood between your fingers is noticeable the first time you put one of our picks between your fingers. And the difference in the sound produced is making professional studio musicians and sound engineers sit up and take notice. Our picks cost a few dollars more, but for the discriminating musician that cares about making the best sound he/she can, there's absolutely no comparison.
We use only sustainably harvested woods that is not endangered according to international CITES agreements and treaties. When we found out that there is an ever-dwindling supply of ebony, we decided to no longer offer picks made from this wood. But not to worry, we continue to find other woods that offer the same unique tonal properties as more well-known wood. Yet each wood has a slightly different look and feel, and interestingly enough, each wood sounds just a bit different.
