Everly guitar picks have become a renowned company for its guitar picks. However, I believe they started out making guitar strings which they still do.
The popularity of their guitar picks can be attributed to a simple yet highly effective feature. What separates the Everly guitar plectrums from other companies that make picks…
The feature I am talking about is a star cutout. That appears on all of their guitar picks. You may be wondering what is so great about the star cutout. To answer your question, the cutout serves an important function.
That function is to help improve the grip on the guitar pick so you don’t have to worry about dropping them or letting them slip out of your fingers whilst playing or strumming. For that reason and innovation, the Everly picks are on my list of cool guitar picks among others.
|Everly Star Red 0.50mm|
|Everly Star Orange 0.60mm|
|Everly Star Yellow 0.73mm|
|Everly Star Green 0.80mm|
|Everly Star Blue 1.00mm|
|Everly Star Purple 1.14mm|
Why Everly Guitar Picks?
Not only does the star help with slippage but it also means you do not have to grip the pick as hard which is great for people with arthritis or other similar ailments.
This start cut out is Everly’s patented guitar pick grip design and is what they are very well known for. The gauges and colors resemble those of the Dunlop Tortex range.
However, Everly has added additional color options that include pink, neon, and white. Essentially the Everly star picks are very similar to the Jim Dunlop Tortex range (the most popular pick today and possibly even the best picks ever) as their materials are very similar, if not the same.
This was done intentionally and can almost be seen as an “improvement” to the Tortex picks. The only downside is that these Everly picks are only available in one shape and that is the regular shape. These Everly guitar picks will, however, last long just like most Delrin picks which are generally durable and resistant to wear and tear.
The gauges of the Everly guitar pick range include:
- 0.50mm, 0.60mm, 0.73mm, 0.88mm, 1.0mm, 1.14mm
Everly Star Regular Range
This range includes the colors we’ve all come to know and associate with guitar picks. which can be attributed to the Dunlop Tortex range as I mentioned above. Each color represents a different gauge. Instead of purchasing each pick separately, Everly has a variety pack of picks that contains all 6 of their picks. This will allow you to choose which gauge you like the best.
Everly Star Bright Color Range
This range adds a few more colors to the mix. whilst maintaining the same gauges and start cutting out that Everly is most well known for.
These extra colors are however only available in one gauge. and that is the popular 0.73mm. This is the equivalent of the yellow Everly star pick above.
Hey, fellow guitar mate! I’m Justin, I have been a professional guitarist since 2012. I have traveled the world playing on different stages alongside some of the best indie bands, at some of the biggest music festivals in the world. As a result, I’ve played lots of different guitar gear. Instead of keeping that knowledge to myself, I have set up this site to share my honest reviews of various guitar gear. But most notably, my love for guitar picks.
