Gravity Picks Unveils the Gold Series

The picks are made of wear-resistant, high-grade thermoplastic.

San Francisco, CA (May 1, 2015) -- The Gold Series is the new premium line offered by Gravity Guitar Picks. Through three years of research and development with the most premium synthetic materials, along with our new, groundbreaking beveling system, we are proud to finally unveil The Gold Series to the masses. The new beveling system used with The Gold Series enables us to shape each piece with exceptional precision. The logo and pick information is laser-engraved following the shaping process.

The picks in The Gold Series come with a premium price tag and are meant for the player who wants a pick made with the finest material and craftsmanship available. This line compares with top boutique picks such as Red Bear and Blue Chip, which are the same price or significantly higher.

The material is a high grade thermoplastic which is amazingly wear-resistant and has a great grip. There is a sizable difference in volume when compared with a normal pick, enabling you to cut through the mix. The Gold Series is available in 4 thicknesses: 1.0mm, 1.5mm, 2.5mm and 5mm.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
