"I tried using other piks, but it felt so unnatural to use a standard pick now that I've been using Sik Piks.", Alex of X-Gene 


Sorry for the trouble with the cart (No viruses involved).  I will reconstruct the cart database.

Regarding the video here:

John Taylor called me, back in March, clearly upset. He told me that through his work recently with Troy Grady of "Cracking the Code", he felt that the World Records were not legitimately earned (he did not pick every note). He expressed his deep sadness and disappointment in letting me, other associates, friend's and family down, in not fulfilling the promise of the World Records. I mentioned that he has not been training as fiercely, as he once had for the records. He informed me of his intentions, to make this video and inform the public of his findings and concerns. I told him that if that was his decision, I supported him.

I am proud to know John Taylor.

I and Sik Pik are pleased to continue to be associated with John Taylor and Mile High Shred.

John Taylor still plays the shit out of Sik Piks!

 Sik Pik, "Take the Lead!"




It takes hard work with daily practice. Constant learning with ever widening horizons and deepening commitments. To play your best takes creativity and drive. And still you have those days...                           You need every advantage you can get.          

"Sik Pik - Take the Lead" 


Sik Pik gives your hand the advantage of physics.

Legato vs. pizzicato. Bowing versus plucking.

Your dynamic range expands with bowing versus plucking. 


Sik Pik employs the easiest possible movement.

An effortless flow from one note to another.

From one string to another. 

From one idea to another.   


 A little effort goes a long way.

Relax your hand with the Sik Pik and build from there (See John Taylor videos).


Sik Pik requires the smallest amount of effort to express your thoughts.

Practice, relax and let your hand get used to the new freedom through effortless playing. 

Once your hand has the new information, it is accomplished.

 "Go as far as you can go", as fast as you can with Sik Pik.

Brushing the string is easier and more expressive than plucking. 

Try it for yourself.

Sik Pik - Take the Lead!   

It takes hard work with daily practice. Constant learning with ever widening horizons and deepening commitments.
To play your best takes creativity & drive. And still you have those days...    You need every advantage you can gather.

Thank you for your interest and your order!


With the standard plectrum, the attack of the note results in an irregular vibrational pattern and the note registering sharp. The string loses some of its initial erratic energy and moves to a normal elliptical pattern and flattens to a stable note on the tuner. With the Sik Pik, the plucked string results in a regular vibrational pattern from the attack of the note to the end of the decay of the note.
