We research the areas of surface finish and design to find the perfect balance among grip, ergonomics and function for our guitar picks.
ROMBO was born in January 2019 thanks to an amazing guitar players community, which supported us during our crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and made these guitar picks real. A few months later, we want to offer you the plectrums we designed. We are guitar enthusiasts located in Stuttgart, Germany, and thanks to you, we will continue developing the best guitar picks we can imagine.
We started from the very beginning and went back to the roots, back to the meaning and the definition of a guitar pick. As a result of the study of the physical properties, we defined four parameters to precisely describe a plectrum: attack, flexibility, tone and technique. Changing the form, dimensions and material we can directly influence these parameters.
We spent many months researching the relation between geometrical characteristics, material, and sound. With the help of 3D Modeling software and some engineering, and simulations, we adapted these essential properties to create the personality of our guitar picks.
After many rounds of 3D Printing prototyping, we’ve come up with a great product: a beautiful plectrum with a strong design line. In addition, we have found the perfect materials for them.
