Making World-Class Plectrums Since 2003
Red Bear Trading makes over 30 styles of flat picks in five different gauges. Our flat picks are not mass-produced like most other pick companies. A few different select styles of our traditional line of "original" flat picks are made for sale in the online store in addition to our "Pickers Choice" sales.
Announcements regarding upcoming "Pickers Choice" sales are always posted at least a week in advance on this front page.
Some styles and Pickers Choice sales do sell out quickly.

Red Bear Trading is pleased to introduce the latest addition to our family of Endorsing Artists, Adam Chowning.
As a touring musician, teacher, and flatpick guitar camp director, I’ve tried just about every pick there is on the market. For years, like many flatpickers, I searched for a tonally comparable alternative to genuine tortoise shell. I found plenty of “close enough” or “good enough” options but until I stumbled across Red Bear Picks, nothing was ever exactly right. If it weren’t for Dave, I’d still be searching. A great product from great folks!
Adam Chowning uses our style "C" in medium gauge with grips and a right-hand bevel.
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 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.

Red Bear Thumb Picks
Red Bear makes two style of thumb picks – the Bear Claw© which is made from our Tuff Tone material and the “Original” which is made from our traditional original material. Simply click this link to order or go to our Thumb Picks page for more information.
Red Bear Tuff-Tones
These picks are a less expensive alternative to our standard line. They deliver great tone while possessing unbeatable strength and warp-resistance. They require absolutely no special care. Keep them in your pocket, wash them, toss them around - nothing hurts them.
This material is offered in a buff color and in two gauges which are specific to the Tuff-Tone line: Medium (1.25mm) and Extra Heavy (1.80mm).
