Wegen picks are made in The Netherlands, by the artisan Michel Wegen. Using a plastic material (which he holds as a tightly guarded secret), Michel makes each pick by hand in his modeling studio, as a hobby from his regular work of professional model maker for museums, advertisement agencies, attraction parks, hospitals, etc.
Working in such a fashion, Michel is able to custom manufacture picks to design for all customer requirements. Through the years, he has developed a number of basic models which have become standardized into a product line, which The Pick Shoppe is proud to carry in stock.
All Wegen picks have a built-in bevel, which simulates the wear of many hours of playing time, so that from the time you open the package, your Wegen pick will feel like you've been playing it forever! Moreover, the picks are designed with built in features to help improve control - for example, the thicker picks have distinctive ridges which help you hold on and control the pick. Some of the thinner models have holes drilled through them in patterns designed to maximize gripability.
The (secret) plastic material has very tortoise-like qualities, and in fact, many Wegen users claim the picks sound equal to or superior to real tortoise.
