DFW based original rock band Sonar Lights sets out to tour China for the second year in a row.
Dallas/Fort Worth, TX – Sonar Lights is eagerly gearing up for their second China tour in May 2014. The rock trio from Dallas/Fort Worth, TX made quite an impression last year with Chinese fans and promoters. After their successful “Enter the Snake 2013” tour, the band was promptly asked to return to rock the masses again at the Midi Festival; the largest rock festival in the country.
The past 12 months have been extremely busy for the band. In addition to [...]
Looking for a unique way to use custom guitar picks at a party? How about as cupcake decorations?! It seems that cupcakes, especially ones with extravagant fillings or frosting decoration, are becoming increasingly popular for events. What better way to make them stand out than with some custom guitar picks crowning the tops? Below is a photo sent to us by customer Deanna Vickers, who placed an order for custom guitar picks for a friend’s birthday party.

Over the years, Clayton, USA has added more and more pick options to our custom guitar pick line. I have realized that, currently, we offer five different white guitar pick options for custom printing, and some of you may be wondering which white pick material will be best for you?
Here is a quick guide to help you out!
1. White Delrin Picks: These are basic, bright white picks, similar to tortex material. They have a semi-gloss finish. They work best with dark, bright, and bold colors for custom designs. Black print is the best for this material.
2. Acetal [...]

Yes, you did read that right! However, it’s actually called a humanoid and has 78 fingers! The band is made up of three which are named March (guitarist with 78 fingers), Ashura (drummer with 22 arms) and Cosmo (keyboardist). We always love to come across crazy ways that our picks are used but seeing robots play with them is pretty amazing we have to say! Also, some good news is that these robots still require a humans help so no worries about robots trying to replace live guitarists in bands (as if they could) :-)! Check the video out for [...]
