D’Addario Acquires National Picks
D’Addario has acquired National Picks, the metal finger-pick manufacturer.
Available now, the finger-and-thumb-pick company will be branded as D’Addario National Picks. Unchanged since its introduction in 1930, National Picks are made in the United States from various alloys to create a vintage, American sound.
In 1930, the U.S. government issued a patent for National Picks that proudly etched on the original models. Each pick’s face also has the National logo and the make and model number etched for easy identification. All picks will continue to be manufactured in the U.S.
The D’Addario National Pick offering will include finger picks in stainless steel, brass and nickel to be released in 2022. In addition to the finger picks, D’Addario will be offering the National Celluloid thumb picks available in white, black and tortoise in both large and medium sizes.
National Picks are available in four packs, 12-pick bulk packs and six-pack finger and thumb pick bundles.
