Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Hand arthritis has been making it very difficult to hold on to a pick for any length of time without pain; particularly with an acoustic guitar, as these require a harder pick strike. A friend of mine at work was trying out a number of different solutions to slipping picks and loaned me one of these. As soon as I got the grip right (in a few minutes) if felt amazingly natural in the hand and initial clumsiness disappeared. Also, I was able to play without pain, since the picking force is distributed to other parts of the hand, so the first finger and thumb are free to just sit back and guide the pick. The original comes with a 1mm pick. Being used to a thicker hard plastic pick, I also purchased a pack of the 1.4mm replacements. As soon as I changed out to the thicker one, my old speed and accuracy were restored. This product has truly been a lifesaver. Great to be able to get back to playing again! Added a picture of how I hold it. Found this...
I have been using this for a week as of now. Such a great design. This thing fits perfectly in your hand and allows for great picking technique without having to think about it too much. It is extremely comfortable. I have not experienced any fatigue while using this like I do with regular picks sometimes. This thing is such a leap forward in technology for guitar picks. In a few years I think these will become the standard. I can't recommend the pykmax enough, get one, you will ove it.
I suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome and associated arthritis due, (probably) to years of work in the construction trades. This little tool for musicians with similar issues is really worth trying. (May not work for you, but then again..... it may.) No longer do I worry about dropping a pick during a performance, because Pykmax makes it virtually impossible to do that. Even if your hands sweat as mine do, the pick is securely fastened to the contoured grip. Hand cramps from trying to hold onto a pick that wants to constantly rotate as you play also becomes a non-issue due to the design. Thanks, PMD LTD. for an innovative product which is helping so many of us continue to play our stringed instrument(s) of choice!!
