Making World-Class Plectrums Since 2003

The "TINY 9" is Red Bear Trading's newest Style! It is modeled after the No 9 but the same size our Lil' Jazzer at .89" wide by 1.04" tall.
This is a great style for players who like a small Jazz pick but a little extra room at the top to for a better grip.

Red Bear Trading Company has been making fine hand-crafted guitar picks since 2003.
- Our picks have become world-renowned for the feel, tone and performance they offer.
- Red Bear's Original line of flat picks provide smooth string attack and release - literally gliding off the strings without effort.
- Players of all styles agree, ours are simply the best guitar picks available today.

Red Bear Trading is pleased to introduce the latest addition to our family of Endorsing Artists, Szymon Chudy.

"Before trying Red Bears', no one would convince me that a pick could have such an impact on my tone. If you don't believe it - give them a try. You won't look back.”

Szymon Chudy gave almost seven hundred concerts in five countries. He participated in recording of over a dozen albums, two of which brought spectacular success. Szanuj went triple platinum, whereas Jamaican Trip, recorded in Tuff Gong – the legendary Bob Marley studio in Jamaica, quickly became a platinum album. Together with StarGuardMuffin, Szymon Chudy was ranked fourth on the Uncharted list by the US Billboard magazine. The band was also awarded a prize from the Consulate of Jamaica in Poland.

Szymon was the only Pole among two hundred most promising young musicians in Europe according to the board of the EU project Euro-Mediterranean Youth Music Expo. As a result, he took part in a series of concerts and workshops in Cyprus, where he played with musicians from all over the Europe. He was then invited to take the stage in Cairo and Alexandria.

Check out Szymon's website here. Szymon uses our "Big Jazzer" style pick in Extra-Heavy gauge gauge, with grips and a right-hand bevel.

Turtle Shell Tri-Tip Red Bear Originals
Our picks are made from Galalith also referred to as Milk Stone or Avoriolina (Ivory imitation). This natural product is made from the hardening of casein, the protein of milk which is a “polymerized animal protein”. Using this material for flat picks delivers an organic feel imitating the warm tone and feel of real shell from the Hawksbill Turtle which is now a protected species. Many people who have tried our picks cannot tell them apart from the real thing. Our picks may be copied, but never equaled! DO NOT be fooled by the imitators. Red Bear Trading Company IS THE original manufacturer of these fine picks.
