Save the tortoise!

Ultem closely resembles real tortoiseshell in sound, feel, and color, but unlike tortoiseshell these guitar picks will not fracture. This space-age material produces a clean, crisp tone with limited flex. Emblazoned with the Clayton eagle logo in white epoxy.

Features

  • Tortoiseshell sound, feel, and color
  • Will not fracture
  • Clean, crisp tone

Comments about Clayton Ultem Standard Guitar Picks:

For decades, my attittude was pretty much "a pick is a pick", all else (shape & thickness) being equal. Then I played the Clayton Ultems. I couldn't believe how much they improved my strings' tone and dynamics, and the increased subtly in coloration and my control of expression. Now they're the only flat pick I use. My only complaint is that they don't come in different colors to differentiate the thicknesses; I don't know until I have the pick in my hand if it's the right thickness for the particular guitar/string gauge combination I grab at any given time

      This pick will make your guitar come alive. If your guitar is a darker tone wood this will bring out the harmonics and life.

      Top rated pick, especially after thinning the tip...

      By Ken Woodruff

      from Portland, Oregon

      Comments about Clayton Ultem Standard Guitar Picks:

      I have tried many picks, seeking the ideal sound. The Clayton Ultem picks are currently at the top of my list in sound quality. HINT: Buy a thicker pick than you would normally use. The .94mm is a very good thickness. Then, take a file and file down the thickness of the tip, so it performs as a thinner pick. Keep going until you achieve the desired brightness with your instrument. I also flatten the sides, giving slightly more of a point. The result is the brightness of a thin pick, with the power and bass response of a thick pick. It is truly awesome. My Tacoma JR55 jumbo guitar used to be too dark in tone; now it gives clear deep tone and good brightness on the high end. I intend to buy more soon for myself!

      Clayton 94's

      By Smokey Joe

      from Ludington, MI

      Comments about Clayton Ultem Standard Guitar Picks:

      My guitar mentor turned me on to these Clayton Ultem 94mm 4 years ago. For the way I play, I like their tone, feel, AND longevity => they last & last & last... and sound great with guitar & mandolin.

      Best pick ever

      By Jens

      from Sweden

      Comments about Clayton Ultem Standard Guitar Picks:

      This pick is not like an ordinary pick. Its special because its finish is like GLUEgrip. I'm not kidding. I've tried picks with holes and real grip and so on. But none of them beats this one in grip. The snap is pretty good to so I recommend this picks strongly.

      best pick ever

      By bill betts

      Comments about Clayton Ultem Standard Guitar Picks:

      I've been using ultems for two years now, I will never switch to any other! These could be $10.00 a dozen and I'd still use them. I have yet to wear one out, you can tool the minimal wear patterns down with a padded nail file. I use the thickest ones for acoustic, electric, and mandolin. These are the best picks EVER!!

      natural--finger nail like sound...

      By Guitar Man

      from Pueblo, Colorado

      Comments about Clayton Ultem Standard Guitar Picks:

      I use the 38mm, so I have to buy my picks from a guitar store, but I think the Clayton Ultem Tortoise Pick has a clean/fresh "natural--finger nail like sound." Although the pick surface is smooth, they don't slip for me, even when wet...I've used every pick ever made and keep a major collection, but the Clayton Utem Tortoise Pick is the pick I use the most, and the one I keep in my wallet!

      Best pick out there for those who don't care for nylon

      By Travis-ZLWdh

      from Flint, Mi

      Comments about Clayton Ultem Standard Guitar Picks:

      I bought a small handful of these at a local music shop out of curiosity. They seemed to respond like a celluloid type pick but appeared more durable. Ended up liking them so much I now use them exclusively and buy them by the gross. Nice snap, sound great on both electrics and acoustics, and last forever. The edges get a nice "not so smooth" wear pattern from up picking which adds to their appeal for me. This is unlike nylon picks that wear completely smooth and have a dead sound. Definitely worth checking out if you like Fender mediums but don't like breaking them. HIGHLY recommended.
