If you were looking for the Jim Dunlop guitar pick holder, this is different.  This is worn on the hand for immediate access to your pick, whether you're in the middle of a performance, a recording, or just jamming with friends.

The Jam Kat was the original design by this designer, and it was a sleek, black nylon pick holder.  While the Jam Kat is not currently available, the FliP! still is, and only from Krikawa as the exclusive manufacturer. The Jam Kat was a spring loaded black guitar pick holder in a black plastic construction. The FliP! is a power loaded guitar pick holder. Black is an option.

If you want to do a product demo with this unique product, please inquire here.

Each FliP! is made to order in the materials and size you desire, so they are not ready to ship.  Perfect for gift giving, please allow 4 weeks for delivery, as each one is custom made by hand.

Watch this video on how to use the FliP!.

Can you use the FliP! with acoustic guitars?

You can definitely use this accessory with acoustic guitars.  As a matter of fact, having the pick so close at hand that it is actually on your hand gains you access to playing finger style, then alternating to strumming, seamlessly. It holds your standard pick of different thicknesses.

What about with electric guitars?

You can definitely use the FliP! with electric guitars too. While it is not as common to flip back and forth on the electric, a side benefit is that you can get amazing live sound using the metal right on the strings; get creative!

Do you have a bass guitar version?

Yes, there is a bass guitar accessory.  Please alloy an additional 2 weeks for the making of your bass pick holder.

Where can I see product demos?

There are product demos on you tube and various other sites.  If you would like to create your own product demo, please inquire online.

What materials are these available in?

You can order your FliP! in any precious metal.  If you had your heart set on the springloaded sleek black look, you can order it in a darkened stainless steel.  When it is added to your cart and ordered, you'll be contacted about customizing and finishes.  You can request your pick holder black at that time.

Are they ready to ship now?

Unfortunately, as each FliP! is made to order, they are not in stock and ready to ship.  This does allow you the luxury of customizing it to your desire!  You can add stones or logos to the bridge!

What happened to the black plastic version?

The original Jam Kat was made of black plastic construction and was quite popular.  Due to technical difficulties with manufacturing, construction of the nylon version has been put on hold until the technicalities are worked out. You can still get the springloaded sleek black look with a stainless steel FliP!

What else would you recommend as a gift for a guitar player?

While the FliP! is our #1 recommended gift for a guitar player, other things you might consider are guitar pedals, dunlop pick holders, or other interesting virtual instruments.  Some guitar players like using digital pianos to play with, or planet waves on wireless systems with audio interfaces.

Would this be a good gift for a DJ?

Believe it or not, this is a question we get.  While a DJ might use a guitar, we'd recommend DJ accessories such as DJ headphones, DJ software, or a DJ mixer for your gift.

What is the Jim Dunlop Spring Loaded Guitar Pick?

The Jim Dunlop guitar accessory will keep your picks close at hand, but not on your hand.  With an adhesive backing, dunlop pick holders can be stuck to anything.

Does Pick-Smith have other instruments or accessories?
