!!Attention!! Because of many orders world wide and the fact that manouche picks is a one-man artisan workshop we have a delay of delivery of 2 weeks from the moment you order.


We do not leave any stone unturned when it comes to finding the perfect materials. We strive to offer you the best replacement for tortoise shell and ivory. They provide the best combination of tonal sound and physical flexibility for picking strings. We carefully selected a mix of environmentally friendly materials such as cotton fibre, artificial proteins and natural co-polymer. These materials create the foundation for the perfect pick with the lowest wear.
