The Wolcott fig. 7 – a lovely rounded shape spotted in a technical publication from 1938. Very balanced shape, almost round, it obviously has its roots in the very round mandolin shapes, but the added point makes this pick relevant, even today.
This almost circular plectrum feels balanced and is at ease in any material, here in Californian Surfite.
32.5 x 29.5mm, it is fairly large, offering plenty of surface for grip, aided by the terraced grip hole, that offers central orientation and more texture without getting in the way.
Polyester is a cast thermoset resin based material, the polyester resin is cast in tubes. This material is non toxic as is suitable for a wide variety of applications, such as musical instruments, writing instruments, interior design, high end household accessories, hobby/craft, cutlery, military and bush craft knives, furniture manufacture and restoration and fashion.
As guitar plectra the polyester is slightly sticky to the touch, and warms quickly to the fingers, which makes them comfortable to hold and play. I would describe the polyester sound as mellow, warm, suggesting roll-off on the tone pot. A chill, comforting plectrum.
