We all know Yamaha to be one of the best instrument brands in the world. this is no different when it comes to their guitars and basses. so this has led me to a question that I’ve been wondering for quite some time now…
why does Yamaha never make guitar picks and plectrums??
all other guitar brands in the world generally have a brand of their own of guitar picks and plectrums, so why do Yamaha not have the same thing?
I know that if they made guitar picks, I would certainly buy them and use them just because I know how good the quality would be. This is considering that the plectrums remain the same quality as the rest of the Yamaha instruments.
They could make even just a small range of the plectrums, it wouldn’t even have to be in a lot of different materials, gauges or shapes. Even just a regular shape made out of the a fairly high quality material, something that sounds good on the Strings and something that feels good to play.
I’m sure Yamaha could make a guitar pick of decent quality if they really tried. I understand that for such a large company, it might not be in their best interests to waste time and resources producing a product that is so small and minute. However, can you imagine how good the marketing would be for Yamaha if they had their name and brand on the guitar picks. Think about how many people will see that branding on a daily basis. It is essentially just like having free branding that gets bought and lost by people. It is quite a great idea if I have to admit so myself.
So I really think that Yamaha should definitely go for making guitar picks one day or another cause I really think they would be able to make the best guitar picks in the world. They wouldn’t have to be such an expensive price and I don’t think it would be such an intense job for them to do such a thing.
Having said that, things are always easier said than done but like I said I’m sure there is a small, maybe even large group of people that would be very interested in using and buying the Yamaha guitar picks that have not existed for quite some time. I may be wrong about the fact that Yamaha do not have plectrums but I certainly haven’t seen them anywhere around so maybe there were once in production and I’m aware of it for now there’s nothing and I would like that is something.
