Where Do We Source Our Materials?

Our materials are sourced from all over the world, and all of our sourcing methods and supply chain routes adhere to ethical & fair-trade practices. Our plectrums are cut & carved in the country of their origin and then shipped to our fulfillment warehouse to await orders.

How Durable Are Element Picks?

All of our Element Picks are designed with superior craftsmanship & attention to detail, and if cared for properly, should last for years. However, that is not to say that they are completely indestructible. We always recommend light strumming & gentle plucking no matter what instrument you play to ensure that your Element Pick will last a lifetime.

If you are a serious player and want to get 100% protection for your Element Pick, consider checking out our Pick-For-Life Guarantee, which covers the pick of your choosing for life.

Will My Element Pick Ruin My Strings?

Absolutely not! As long as you are strumming & plucking gently (as we always recommend), the durability of your strings will be totally unimpacted by the picking from any of our Element Picks.

What Instruments Can I Use My Element Pick With?

Any stringed instrument that produces sound by vibration of strings is compatible with our Element Picks. Just kindly be reminded to strum & pick gently, as all of our picks are handmade with 100% natural materials, and are susceptible to cracking or breaking under hard use.

Should I Use My Element Pick As A Plectrum Or A Necklace?

That's up for you to decide!  We've designed our picks to easily attach and detach from a 1.5mm corded necklace by the use of a cow hitch knot. If you'd like to see instructions on how to attach the knot to your Element Pick, click here.
