What type of pick does (insert name here) use?

Here at Grover Allman we have been fortunate enough to produce custom picks for some well known artists over the years.

We often receive emails from fans who have gotten their hands on a pick of ours or have seen a photo online, wanting to know the type of pick that was used for that particular artist or band. Sometimes the fan is a guitarist and after using the artists' pick, wants the same style with their own artwork.

How Grover Allman Started - Part Four

To date we have sold in excess of 50 million guitar picks and supplied picks to some of the biggest bands in the world. Some of these bands go through 10,000 + picks per year! The list is huge and apologies for missing anyone out, bands like AC/DC (listening to while I write this blog, and to be specific - “If You Want Blood You’ve Got It”), Alice Cooper, Motley Crue, Rolling Stones, Extreme, Pink, Rihanna, Keith Urban, Ozzy Osbourne and so many, many, more… It is super satisfying to see bands that we supplied picks to all those years ago are still with us today and to see how they have grown also.

How Grover Allman Started - Part Two

A year had passed and we decided to bring out another guitar pick, one that we could print on. We have a laugh about some of those first designs; very simple, single colour, we even went out on a limb with some and printed them 2 colours! Read more...

How Grover Allman Started - Part One

We are often asked, “How did Grover Allman start?”

It was an idea born nearly 25 years ago. Jason (Allman) and myself Kevin (Grover) both had day jobs; Jason worked as a graphic designer and I as a manager for a large plastics company. We were both guitarists, Jason much better than I. One day Jason said to me, “It looks easy being a desk jockey”. I told him that I actually really wanted to start my own business and that I had this crazy idea about making guitar picks. He said it didn’t sound crazy at all and that he had thought about it himself! Read more...

There are so many products now that lend themselves to personalization and it is one of the booming industries in the world today. Recent advances in technology have allowed personalisation of many items that simply could not be printed just a few years ago.
