Over the years you have probably heard Dugain picks in some very famous hands,
among them John.McLaughlin, Al.di.Meola, Bireli.Lagrène ("The pick is very important, too. You have to have those thick picks to have the round sound." more), George.Benson, Mike.Stern, Eric.Clapton and Carlos.Santana

Also many from the new generation of players who buy through this site such as
John Mayer and James Valentine.

And yet - perhaps because of its size - it seems the humble plectrum continues to be the most underestimated piece of kit in the guitarist's rig.

We spend thousands chasing that elusive sound, striving after ever more natural tone and feel. ..Vintage guitars, hand-built amps - nothing is beyond us...

But remember, its the pick that generates the sound.

. . Hand crafted in France by Jean-Charles Dugain since 1977, Dugain plectra are fashioned from natural materials such as ebony, bone, horn, coconut shell, agate, jasper, bronze and mammoth ivory. . Each has its own subtly individual sound and feel, and lends itself to a particular style of playing or instrument type.

    "For pounding nails I have some very nice hammers …it only took me 40 plus years to look into a better way to strike my guitar strings…brilliant!

    It took no time at all to find Dugain picks and Billy was a great help in getting me what I needed. No more cheepo hammers."

    "I wish I could have a whole VAT full of these picks to sift through & audition because there is so much variation even within duplicate woods ..."

    "I am writing to thank you for making such an amazing product. I am constantly baffled by how overlooked the role the plectrum plays in tone is. The difference in warmth, complexity and body between a normal plastic pick and an ebony Dugain is as profound as changing from a plastic guitar to a world class archtop. The material used and the shape employed in a pick affect the sound as much as the materials and construction of the guitar itself...maybe even more. (Anyway, feel free to use any of this text. I mean every word). Thanks again. Sincerely,"

    "I'm primarily a fingerstyle player these days, on electric or acoustic guitar. I prefer the sound, plus the feel and accessibility of having all fingers free. Sometimes you just want to give the guitar an open-handed slap, you know?
    Well, a couple of years ago, I heard about picks by a French maker named Jean-Charles Dugain. Whew, was I impressed. I got some horn, bone, and ebony picks, and they are the greatest sounding picks i've ever played with. Contoured to mold around your fingers, and made with natural materials. They're expensive, but hey, look at the price a violinist pays for a bow, or a wind player for his or her reeds. So, when I do need a pick for articulation, I grab one of the Dugains."

    "Billy,
I've been waiting for the Dugains to become available in England for ages...I'm very impressed!

    "I have just received my picks and i am utterly dazzled at them! The craftsmanship, feel and sound of them is astounding! They leave all other picks in the dust! I am very satisfied from them, i will be sure to tell all my friends about them and buy more when i can! They were well worth the money and wait. Thank you very much!"
