Westone Plectrums...? :)

Post by DreamRaven on Tue Oct 12, 2010 11:34 am

Can you tell that I am on a roll?

Can get black plectrums with either black (yes, I know black on black sounds bizarre, but...), silver or gold print (i am leaning towards silver or gold).

With P&P, I can supply 10, single sided print, for £3.50 (if you order stickers at the same time, remove 50p as I will combine p&p).

Question, for those interested, what weight? Hard (0.96) Medium Heavy (0.81) Medium Light (0.71)?

I have ordered plectrums from this supplier before, and I LOVE the Medium Light (very little flex, but some, great for Placebo/Blink 182/White Stripes distorted/overdriven rock.

Any interest?

Also, tell me if I am overdoing this 'Toner' custom logo stuff...

sounds very cool...i'd really like some of these (about 50 medium light)...is it possible to print a logo on the other side of the plectrums? do you know what that would cost?

thanks for doing all this... cheers

OK, Pleccies ordered...

Black Medium Light (0.71mm) with Gold Westone logo (similar to above). Should take a week or two.

Price as previously stated. £3 for 10, plus 50p post and packing. If you order multiples of 10, I will only charge for one P&P, that also includes any sticker orders, group them together and postage will be less.

As said in previous forums, I will not take any payments until I have received items, and if you want to order, either wait for the PayPal link, or PM me.

Is plectrum a more proper word for a pick?

Interesting. I know they can be called picks but I cant say that I have ever heard them called that in the UK. Probably wrong, but amongst my muso acquaintances they tend to referred to as plec's.

plec·trum (plktrm)
n. pl. plec·trums or plec·tra (-tr)
A small thin piece of metal, plastic, bone, or similar material, used to pluck the strings of certain instruments, such as the guitar or lute.
[Latin plctrum, from Greek plktron, from plssein, plg-, to strike; see plk-2 in Indo-European roots.]

Must be a US (perhaps North American?) thing, then. I've never heard them called plectrums.

In South Africa it's known as a Plek.
Found this in Germany.

I'm hearing more and more of players who are getting their guitars "Plek'd". Probably not cheap enough for all guitars in the average members' collection here, but certainly worth it for top end instruments or single instrument players methinks.

Here you tend to hear the term "pick" more than "plectrum", although plectrum is not unknown.
And you know, if you pick it, it will never get well. clown

yep in the UK it's a plectrum (or plecy) and the big plastic thingy on a guitar is a scratchplate not a pickguard

And the COLOUR of my guitar is pearl white, which really irritates the NEIGHBOURS when I ramp it up to eleven on the amplifier. They look forward to the time when I throw it all in the back of a LORRY and drive down the MOTORWAY to play a gig at a PUB.

Talk about two countries separated by a common language!

Technically we do have pubs here, they're just all English or Irish themed. Laughing Thanks for the terminology lesson, guys!

Well, I mean they're designed to look as English or Irish as possible. I dunno how people act inside, I typically go to the nerdy bars. Laughing

OK... finally received confirmation of despatch from the Plectrum printers, they say 1-3 days for delivery. Hopefully, by Thursday they will be in my hand.

So, if you guys are waiting to order stickers, with plectrums, your wait is soon to be over.

Go find the links for the stickers and t-shirts elsewhere on the forums. They will be here, until they are gone!

Now, that was quick!

There are only a few left, so if you want them, you better PM me quick! If I get enough interest for more than what I have, I will order some more.

Everyone who has PM'd today (or in the past) has had their plectra allocated, so that is cool.

I might do glow in the dark ones next!

Plectrum? Isn't that a line of Westones? Laughing I have a 1987 xa 1330 Cool
Its' funny, i've never heard a pick called anything but a pick till i met my English brother in law. It seems its quite the opposite on the other side of the Atlantic. I must admit, plectrum does sound cooler. I wonder which came firrst, the pick or the plectrum.
Wicked cool picks by the way, may have to order some.

Best hurry, currently down to my last ten. First payment secures them. Obviously, if I get more than that I will order more, but currently, that is that
