Jeff Przech

Products used: Clayton Standard Duraplex Picks .88mm

“The first thing that caught my eye about Clayton picks was strictly aesthetic – I thought they just looked cooler than the other picks out there! Once I bought a couple of packs and started using them I noticed the difference immediately. They feel stronger in my fingers, last longer, and, most importantly, they just sound better than the picks I was using. Some might find it hard to believe that something as simple as a guitar pick can have an effect on your sound, but it most definitely can and does. I’m a Clayton [...]

Rob Jones

Products Used: Clayton Standard Shape, 0.60mm Duraplex Picks and Clayton Inner Lock Straps.

“In order to make it through long sets of singing and playing, having a good pick makes all the difference. Picks that notch and sound dull will kill your show faster than almost anything. That’s why I stick with Steve Clayton so I can focus on doing what I love.”

“When you’re in an indie band, a lot of the times you’re “riding by the seat of your pants” and depending on your gear to help you make the money you need to get to the next venue or back home. Steve Clayton’s products offer the dependability we need for the peace of mind we desire.

My Steve Clayton locking strap is essential to helping me keep my bass on while I lay that bottom-end groove. When we’re recording and I need to play some lead [...]

Patricio Stiglich

Products Used: Acetal Guitar picks, HexPicks and Socket Slides.

“After many years of playing I finally found the perfect pick. The acetal is an amazing material, it’s durable, non slip and has the right shape for all speeds of picking, the tone is great, it lasts long enough and it’s practically indestructible!! The triangular shape is perfect for guitar and bass. Now I can’t go back to my previous choice, totally recommended!!”

Patricio was born in Bogotá, Colombia, and his interest in guitar began at age 12; and although his current music influences are marked by the sounds of Megadeth, [...]

“A guitar pick is like a way of life. And I choose Steve Clayton.”

Sandness is the result of a project started in 2008, when two sixteen years old friends Mark Denkley and Metyou ToMeatyou (bass and drums respectively) decided to form a hard rock band, trying to bring back to life the ‘80s with their original tracks. The band’s line-up went through some changes during the years. The only one who seemed to have the same ambitions of the other two members was [...]
