I wanted to take a minute to write a review of the Hufschmid plectrums, specifically made from the material POLYSULFONE. I am a HUGE fan of the work of Patrick Hufschmid, I own a fair amount of guitars created by him and I also own MANY of his hand made plectrums. I was intrigued when I read about the material POLYSULFONE, being an enthusiast of the United States space program.
I decided to place an order for one and having many other plectrums of different materials, I was partial to the mega jazz shape. I received my package in LESS than 10 days from my order date!! That is to me, EXCELLENT customer service... the package was a small yellow bubble envelope, sealed with a red wax seal, imprinted with the Hufschmid logo! Talk about presentation!!! AWESOME!
I excitedly opened the package and to my surprise found not only my mega jazz polysulfone plectrum in a small bag accompanied by a sleek business card, I also found a Hufschmid pendant!!! Patrick included a FREE circular, antique nickel finish pendant with my order. I was floored by the entire parcel, and Patrick's generosity. Enough about the parcel, onto the plectrum...
The plectrum is a wonderful transparent golden color, and is hand cut, shaped, and polished to perfection. I enjoy the high gloss finishes the most. I know Patrick spends a great deal of time creating these small works of art, and it shows. The thickness is a bit over 11mm, and is extremely comfortable between the thumb and forefinger. The tip is perfectly shaped and does not "hang up" while moving from string to string, the motion is fluid and effortless. There was no "getting used to it" period, I was comfortable and felt "at home" instantly. The attack is defined and pronounced, and I felt much less fatigue in my picking hand while using it. This prompted me to order the same material in 3 other shapes which I like, the ANVIL XL, the MINI ANVIL XL, and the ERGO ANVIL... I love them all. The tip on the ANVIL XL is more pointed than the others, for players who prefer a "sharper point". My favorite shape is a toss up between the ERGO ANVIL and the MEGA JAZZ, the ERGO sits back in my fingers and the rear of the plectrum rests against the base of my forefinger, and I have noticed increased control using this shape. My picking hand is more relaxed and I feel no more cramping at all. I also noticed an improvement in my picking technique, and my speed and accuracy have improved. I recommend these plectrums to anyone who may be experiencing any pick hand discomfort, anyone who wants to improve their speed and accuracy, or to any player who may be looking for "something different"...
I must also mention that to me it is a wonderful thing that I am supporting an independent artisan, a person who imagines and creates these incredible plectrums and guitars... I choose to no longer support huge multimillion dollar corporations who don't really care about their quality, or customers, and in most instances what they are offering was made by machines. Hufschmid, HAND MADE WITH SKILL AND PASSION!!!
Pictured are the MINI ANVIL XL, the MEGA JAZZ, the ANVIL XL, and the ERGO ANVIL, all handcrafted of polysulfone!!!! AWESOME!! Also pictured is the NEW solid brass HUFSCHMID LOGO PENDANT.... I LOVE THIS PENDANT, so I had to include it in the pictures!!
