Coin guitar picks have been used by musicians for a century because of their unique tonal qualities, but now they can also be a unique expression of your own time and place. That's because this pair of picks from Dustin & Stephanie Headrick is made from a pair of custom-selected quarters: one is made from the commemorative state quarter of your choosing, and the other is a quarter minted during your choice of year (from 1965 to 2018).

Each coin's distinctive raised insignia gives these picks an easy-to-grip texture, so they'll stay on hand regardless of the style you prefer to strum. They create increased volume and a bright attack on acoustic instruments such as guitar, ukulele and mandolin. They can also entirely change the sound of an electric guitar by naturally reacting with the strings and pickup dynamics. Hand-honed in Nashville, Tennessee; appropriately nicknamed the "Music City."

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Made in Tennessee

Nashville natives Stephanie and Dustin Headrick transform common cents into uncommon guitar picks. The couple started with a collection of silver quarters and half-dollars, but didn't really want to watch them sit around for 50 years and collect dust. It's well known with musicians that silver coin guitar picks have been around for a hundred years, but actually getting your hands on one is a rare thing. So, the savvy numismatists began hand-honing the coins into picks and immediately loved the tinny sound they produced. After gaining popularity at local craft fairs, they began experimenting with other materials: brass, bronze, copper, aluminum, hardwood, and even horn. To date, they've sold tens of thousands of handmade guitar picks to musicians all over the world, with many customers becoming avid collectors.

My husband tried to use it... and was intrigued by the different tonal quality it provides. However, the pick is too small to get a good grip. He really likes the uniqueness of the product and is happy to keep it as a memento... although he would have liked to use it.
