    WAMA Pick Card

    WAMA Logo 4 Pick - Pick Cards

    These Credit Card Shaped Guitar Pick Cards with the WAMA Logo imprinted on both sides have four very good snap-out/snap-in guitar picks. By keeping one of these cards with you, you'll never be without a good pick. Admittedly, they're not your favorite Blue Chip or Dawg pick (and not as expensive), but if you see an instrument you want to try out, and you don't have your favorite pick available, you could have 4 picks in your wallet or purse. Just snap one out, try out the instrument, and when you're ready, snap it back into the card and put it away safely.


    The internet has lots of websites that show you how you can make your own picks from old credit cards. They even show tools you can buy to punch out the right shape picks. None of those picks are as handy and useful as a single card like this, with four quality picks that you can snap-out and snap-back into the card, and keep them safely together in your wallet.


    Please help WAMA! Buy lots of these cards for yourself, and to give as gifts to family and friends. Give one to someone you know is just starting to learn a picked instrument. Even punching out one pick and giving it to someone new to playing music will be greatly appreciated.


    You say you play a banjo, fiddle, bass, or some other instrument that doesn't use this type of pick..... Just remember, you can still show you support WAMA by giving them as gifts to those that do use a pick with their instrument. They will be greatly appreciated!


    Pick Cards are credit card size (3 3/8" W x 2 1/8" H)

    $5.00 each
