It’s been way too long since we did a giveaway, so it’s time to fix that right in the face!

Von Hotch Custom Picks

Are traditional picks too wimpy and not rigid enough for your high speed shredding needs?

Are you so heavy metal that you need a PICK that’s made out of metal as well?!

You’ve come to the right place.

A little while ago I was lucky enough to be involved in reviewing the early designs of the Von Hotch Custom Pick line, and I really dug them. They were smooth, slick, and had just that extra bit of tonal “zing” compared to traditional materials. Now, Von Hotch have kindly agreed to do a giveaway of their brand spanking new set of designs, which have been christened with the freaking awesome name of…


Thanks to Von Hotch, we have FOUR, count ‘em FOUR custom Metalli Regum picks to give away to a lucky 6SS reader, nestled in a regal purple cushion, housed in a badass, handmade box. Yes, Von Hotch can AND WILL make anything from custom picks to pickup surrounds and much more.

Anyway, I digress. The lucky winner will have the privilege of receiving the following picks:

  1. Gabriel Leopardi signature pick – yeah, you guessed it, the one with the initials GL. Gabriel is best known as lead guitarist of the Argentinian band Cirse, and an instructor at
  2. The Gypsy – shaped like a classic Jazz III pickup, this badass piece of bling is 1.3mm thick, and will outlast ALL of your Jazz IIIs!
  3. The Invader – one of the original Von Hotch designs, now powder coated in none more black.
  4. Todd Simpson signature pick – the gigantic green Godzilla with the huge hole in the middle. Todd is also an instructor at GMC, and prefers his picks with some junk in the trunk for his high speed work!

How do I win this already?!
