Rombo Picks Unveils Four New Models

Rombo Picks has developed a new series of plectrums with a special story: They were designed with the help of the online guitar community. For this, the founders created a big online survey (over 1500 guitarists), in which the participants could select the thicknesses, the size, the tip diameter, and even the names of the new picks.


These guitar picks were successfully launched on the crowdfunding platform Kickstarter and now they have been officially launched for retail.

The picks are called Horizon (1.4 mm), Prisma (0.8 mm), Crisp (1 mm), and Jade (2.3 mm). Such Try Out Mix is an excellent way to test several picks and experiment with new tone textures.

The material used to manufacture the picks has high mechanical strength and stiffness, excellent impact resistance, and superior aesthetic properties.

Rombo also uses this material for its Eco-Black range. In this range, all guitar pick models are manufactured out of 100% recycled pre-consumer fibre waste.

Each pick has been carefully developed for a concrete purpose. For this reason, the Rombo team has redefined the four attributes of a guitar pick: shape, thickness, material and size.

The highlights of these guitar picks are:

  • Micro-nodule grip structure
  • High mirror polished tip
  • 3D ergonomic design surface
  • Variable thickness
  • High-Quality materials
  • Unique designs

It’s not difficult to replace the wiring in your pickups, but it takes some finesse. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. After numerous requests, this month we’ll have a closer look at changing wires on a single-coil pickup. As our guinea pig for this, I chose a standard Stratocaster single-coil, but it’s basically the same on all single-coil pickups and easy to transfer. It’s not complicated but it is a delicate task to not destroy your pickup during this process, and there are some things you should keep in mind.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
