The Titan: Gradient
The Titan: Gradient is an ultra-polished 1mm titanium pick with a custom colour gradient flame finish.
The Titan: Gradient is one of our most popular precision machined and heat tinted titanium guitar picks from our successful Kickstarter campaign!

Following the success of our Kickstarter campaigns, we decided to concentrate on everyone’s favourite titanium picks. Pure titanium was selected for its excellent strength to weight ratio, durability and toughness. This combination of beneficial properties made titanium an easy choice for our pick material.
The pick design was brought to life with computer-aided design (CAD) where we created 3D models and produce drawings for the manufacturing process. We created both 0.5mm and 1mm thickness for the Titan picks and precision milled the front of the pick with the Ti for titanium.
Our titanium picks are manufactured through wire EDM and precision milling techniques. Ultimately, the precision obtained and edge finishing is far superior to traditional methods. And crucially, it allows for repeatability. Using these methods reduces material waste and actually uses less power than traditional machining methods. Finally, the picks are polished to provide a mirror finish and also to reduce friction between the picks and the guitar strings and heat-treated to create a unique finish.
