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, Dave Powers.

"Admittedly, I am a collector of all kinds of things, and I have a really cool guitar pick collection. Over my 30 years of playing guitar, I've used ALL KINDS of picks, and pretty much stuck with the cheap $0.25 picks that you can find at any music store. But, being the sonic nerd that I am, I started noticing that some of my favorite players weren't using the same picks I was using. This activated curiosity and fanned the flame of my perpetual quest of great tone. I discovered the amazing world of boutique picks and at first, honestly, I was suspicious. Could a boutique plectrum (pick) make that much of a difference? And was it worth the price? So, I ordered a couple of picks from Red Bear (classic style, 1 medium and 1 light gauge). I am blown away! Great volume, killer tone, and brings a smile to my face every time I play them. That being said, does it make that much of a difference??? YES. Is it worth the money?? I believe it is! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to everyone!

Comprised of Dave and Tara Powers, MOUNTAINCITY may very well be single handedly revolutionizing the entire love song genre. Lyrics that strive to honor, treasure and untangle the essence of love merge with a sophisticated blend of folk-pop, country, blue-eyed soul, electronic remixes and instrumentals to form a rich sonic palette that sounds just as current as it does classic. MOUNTAINCITY tours the United States and performs 100+ times per year.

Check out Dave and Tara's website Mountain City Music. Dave uses our "Classic" style pick in medium gauge gauge, no grips and a standard 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.
