Introduction
I'm Michel Wegen, professional model maker, run my own shop and usually work for museums, advertisement agencies, attraction parks, hospitals, et cetera. (See an overview of my work) In my spare time I like to study other people's problems and try to invent solutions. This is a very interesting and enjoyable hobby, and I am often successful in finding new solutions to old problems.


Gypsyjazz picks
The Gypsyjazzpick
One of these solutions was making picks for gypsy jazz style. And the picks are among the best available for this style worldwide. And what wonderful reviews I received on the Standard model, now called the Gypsyjazzpick. Please click on the comments link at the bottom of the page.


Gypsyjazz picks
The material I use is sounding very close to tortoise , but it is lasting much longer. The pick has a nice beveled and curved tip, so it makes a difference if you're right- or left-handed. Both sides have grooves for grip, and the thumb side is concaved with grooves.

My standard gypsy picks are 3.5 mm thick, 30 mm long and 26 mm wide. I've improved this pick just a few times for the better, and my customers and I cant think of any more ideas to offer a better gypsyjazzpick. I'm done here.
Price: USD/EUR 15,- a piece. These come in yellow packages, and you can buy these picks also from people who have some stock. See below for addresses.

The Fatone
Actually this is called the fat-tone pick, but what's in a name. This is my new model pick. There is nothing else to compare with in pick-land. Its big. It gives your guitar a bright tone, and

Some Fatone picks
it's very loud. This pick makes you fall in love again with your acoustic guitar. You'll get a sound out of your guitar, so loud and sparkling, you never could have imagined is was in there all the time. This pick brings it all out. It's 5 mm thick,( Just look at the picture with the CD jewel case) but this Wegen-design makes it very easy to control. In the picture you can see the grip I make on the Fatone. It's very much like the grip I make on the Gypsyjazzpick.


Compare them with
a CD case
Get your volume and tones to a higher level. The Fatone makes a difference, you can feel it, and hear it even more! ( I hope you have a proper build guitar using this pick, it might fall off your lap in pieces.........) USD/EUR 15,- a piece. These come in green packages For the time being, only available from me.

Bluegrass picks!

Bluegrass picks

These are the ultimate picks for serious guitarists. After all, I only want to offer the best money can buy. My material just sounds great for bluegrass at a 1.4 mm thickness. We are continuously evaluating on grip and design, to improve the picks even further. Absolutely very nice ideas are coming up.

These picks are offered in a 4 picks package. USD/EUR 15,- for a package. These come in blue packages. They're also available in single packages.

Bigcity picks!

Bigcity Picks

Our latest model: the Bigcitypicks! In cooperation with Bigcitystrings.com we have developed this little jazz pick. It's especially designed for acoustic jazz and blues guitar. (But it will also do fine on electric guitar) It's 29 mm long and 1.8mm thick.

These picks come in a 4 picks package. USD/EUR 20,- for a package. Go to the Order Form to order them immediately!

The Production Process
Each pick is made by hand, so if you would like to have a custom made pick, please let me know what you would like.

Precision tools
I can offer picks in any shape, and in almost dimension. So, ask me if you have any special wishes, you won't be the first ( and probably not the last) who will find out that special picks aren't hard to get, after all.

Wegenpicks is always working on customer satisfaction: We now can offer all the Wegenpicks also in black. It's the same material, with all the same features. Please specify black or white on the orderform.

Making custom made picks can be a work of precision. If I you would like a pick to be exact 3.45 mm thick, 34.3 mm long and 27.25 mm wide, I can make it.

Ordering info
You can always contact me for all kinds custom-made picks, but when you would like to order a standard gypsy jazz pick for right-handed players, you can also contact one of the people below to save some time. These people have stocks of the gysyjazzpicks, and probably have other model Wegenpicks as well in the future.
