ChickenPicks guitar picks have been made by Eppo Franken, since 1984. Distributor HTD says the young guitar player was ‘…looking for the perfect connection between himself his gear. He tried everything, then one day he found the thermosetting plastic and made the first guitar picks with the special bevel.
‘It all started with the Regular 2.6mm – that’s still his favourite – he made them just for himself and his musical friends at first, then in 2010, Eppo and his wife started the family business, with the name ChickenPicks guitar picks (because of the love for Country Music). At first everything was handmade, but quickly there were too many orders to handle. Since 2012 ChickenPicks guitar picks are made in a special mould, under high temperature, although all the finishing is still done by hand’.
