2.0 out of 5 stars Great idea - such a shame it doesn't really work 26 Mar 2012
By A. J. Sturgess TOP 500 REVIEWER

The holder is a good idea. It's one of those things that seems so obvious, you wonder why it hadn't been done before. But there is a basic flaw with the way it's been designed and made --- it doesn't work anywhere as well as it could or should have done. I have uploaded a photo to accompany this review so that you can see the problems that I identified.

The large image shows the actual design of the holder. The small section, underneath, is what you slide between strings at the headstock and then rotate to hold the item in position. As you can see, the openings at the outer edges tend to widen and this is what causes the first problem.

Ditto for the upper part which fails to grasp thin picks effectively. If you use medium thickness picks, especially if they're not very shiny, you might be OK. But thin picks are barely grasped at all. Very thick picks wouldn't be held either.

The other images show the holder on the headstocks of two different types of guitar - an acoustic and a classical. In both cases, the holder needs to be pushed down near to the nut where the closeness of the strings holds it in place. Slide it further away from the nut and it can easily vibrate and revolve and fall off!!!

The upper right image shows the unit in position from another angle.

So - is it a better solution than threading your plectrums between the strings behind your headstock nut? No - not really.

Is it worth buying and trying? Possibly, but only if you use medium picks and still keep a couple in your pocket for emergencies. Because the holder may well work for some guitars and for some types of plectrum, I've awarded it 2 stars - but it was a hard call and I nearly gave it just 1.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad. 10 Mar 2014

I use one thickness of pick 0.46. One of the slots hold the pick perfectly, the other one is somewhat looser (this could be intentional so as to accommodate other thicknesses). I find that I have to keep the slot which holds the pick loosely facing upward so gravity helps to hold the picks, otherwise if facing downward the picks just fall out. Again this could just be my individual instance, the thing is made out of rubber.

Simple little gadget that works a treat. No fumbling in pockets for that other pick. Good to hold two different weights or just a handy spare.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 7 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
Initially I thought this little device was an ideal solution to dropped plectrums when on stage.

Currently the guitar I play most is a Gibson SG with light gauge strings. I found that the device would not fit snugly enough between the D & G strings as per the example photo and certainly would not hold my 2 0.6 plectrums securely in place. I then tried it between A & D and E & A strings and this made the device fit a lot better. Unfortunately my thin plectrums still did not hold securely.

Another flaw I have found is how the device can affect the tuning of the guitar. When fitted you will need to retune but should the device move up or down through energetic playing your guitar is going to end up out of tune.

This device may work with acoustic or electric guitars that play with heavy gauge strings and or people that play with thicker plectrums but it certainly did not work for me. At least I purchased it from Amazon who have a good returns system.

3.0 out of 5 stars for 1.99 it's ok 16 Nov 2013

I read some of the reviews and saw their point but it fits fine on my guitar and I use heavy gauge picks. It's a lot smaller that I thought but it does the job (often hear that!). Surprisingly it works best with my Fender bass, pity I play finger style though.
