Welcome to JB Guitar Picks
A dedicated guitar player is often in sync with his or her instrument. However, what is often taken for granted is what stands between the instrument and who is playing it: the small piece that translates the movement of your fingers onto the string–the pick.
The quality of a pick is essential in capturing the intended sound a guitarist wants to hear when playing. Whether you have been playing guitar for years or are just a beginner, chances are you haven’t found a pick that is completely satisfactory to you. You may have the perfect guitar, but without the right pick, you have yet to create that perfect sound.
My name is JB and a few years ago, I decided to make it my mission to provide players with a high quality pick for a fair price. JB Guitar Picks is based in Brooklyn N.Y and is solely run by me. I handle everything myself so every customer deals with me and only me. JB picks are made from celluloid and are custom beveled by my own hands. I believe that hand beveling ensures an organic design that puts your fingers at ease while also optimizing your control over the intended sound. JB picks have been reviewed as helping players achieve their desired tone and the sleek body of the picks glide along the string like a hand through water.
Purchase a pick from JB Guitar Picks so you can finally capture that perfect sound you have been chasing all your life.
I ordered them from EBay, They came to my home today. I’ve been playing them for the last hour and a half. I fell in love with them instantly. I just ordered 3 more.. I’m a professional Jazz/ R&B Guitarist..I’m the former Guitarist/Musical director for Boyz II Men. Now I’m doing my own solo gig as a leader. I play all around the world. I’ve had hundreds of picks from all over the world. Picks made from every material from metal to bone and everything in between. No sound like my original Tortoise Pick I brought from Japan back in the 80′s I’ve warn that pick down to a nub. Today I’ve found the sounds like my tortoise shell pick. I just had to contact you all and say thanks. You have a new follower. I’m endorsed with Gibson Guitars and I used the pick on my Super 400 and I lost my mind. all I heard was pure tone without all the squeak you get from cheap imitations. Thanks for making my Day.. These picks are AWESOME!!!
John, Your picks never cease to amaze me. Just ordered a triangle 1.0mm sonic and cat wait to get it. I’m starting to step out of rhythm playing and more into flatpicking and I have to tell you, your picks make all the difference in speed and feel, and as always the gorgeous tone. I’m playing a 1972 D35 which is a cannon on its own but with your picks it just roars, my flatpicking machine is a heavily modified 2005 D16 which I’m looking forward to trying the triangle on….the sonic really bring out the sweet woody tone of the D16. I wouldn’t trade one of my many JB picks for a whole bag of the “other guys” …..and I’ve tried them all. I am the proud owner of a pre-ban (my grandmothers) 1.0 mm tortoise shell pick….yours is without a doubt the closest to the real thing….bar none. Keep up the good work!!
JB, As a professional jazz guitarist and a huge gear nerd, I’ve been buying boutique guitar picks from just about every known brand out there. if you’ve investigated for yourself, you know that some of these specialty picks can cost upwards of $50. Once I tried the JB 2mm sonic bevel, the search ended. this pick is exactly what I had imagined. The bevel on these is absolutely perfect…I honestly just stare at it sometimes. These picks just slide off the string. I honestly can’t imagine a better pick. I’ll be using these for as long as they’re around.
Hi JB, I’ve been using your picks for a couple of weeks now, and I’m absolutely blown away. My playing and tone have improved by leaps and bounds. My ability to play dynamically is off the charts compared to what it was. My speed and accuracy have never been this good. You are the absolute BEST at what you do. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! All the best,
Hi JB, I am an admittedly average player. I am blessed that one of my guitars in particular is a very nice, rich, responsive instrument. Your picks are the perfect complement to this, and all of my instruments. They have a beautiful tone with little or no pick noise. I’ve bought several different styles and thicknesses, as I experiment with the shape and sound I like for whatever style. Truly amazing. Your picks help bring out the most of my instrument and my playing. I thank you for that!
