Hufschmid Handcrafted Guitar Plectrums

Share Article

Handcrafted in Switzerland by luthier Patrick Hufschmid.

Since 1996, internationally renowned luthier Patrick Hufschmid creates his unique electric guitars entirely by hand in his little workshop based in Aigle next to Montreux in Switzerland. Patrick is also the only full time swiss plectrum builder, his innovative original plectrums and guitar accessories designs have conquered thousands of players worldwide.

By reducing the initial application of force, the ‘Hufschmid 'Drop' and 'ANVIL’ plectrum design naturally reduces playing effort. Combined with the decreased amplitude required to traverse the strings and a more relaxed grip as a result of the shape and thickness, this unique plectrum design helps to improve picking precision and optimizes applied strength, helping the player to minimize wasted energy and motion.

The unique design of the Hufschmid 'Drop' and 'ANVIL’ offers a better bio-mechanical grip to the player who finds his picking hand to be more relaxed while enjoying an overall improved playing sensation due to its improved ergonomics.

The 'ANVIL plectrum' is a much thicker pick which is specifically designed for players suffering from articular and muscular pain (please read the users reviews which can be found in the 'testimonials page'), this giant pick helps release muscle tension and actually plays amazingly great if you are an adventurous player looking for something radical and different!

We would like to invite you to visit the website in which you will find more information about Patrick's work and the materials he used for creating his exclusive handcrafted guitar plectrums. Several materials are available, including a photoluminescent material exclusive to Hufschmid guitars called 'HufGlow' which is the strongest glow in the dark material ever used for creating guitar picks.
