Iron Age - About Us

 

Inspired
By A Timeless Era

Iron Age is about the decadence of the Roman empire,
but also the lavishes & luxury of its Caesars.

It's about ancient mythologies, far and wide.
From the fiery war gods of Athens, to the sagas of the Norse Pantheon...

And its fighters, and its warriors, and its champions.


Iron Age is for those who discern the details,
and appreciate a finer experience.

It's for those dedicated to their craft (as we are),
the passionate & the determined.

It is for the victorious, the triumphant,
and those who seek to ride life "straight to perfect laughter."


Are you about challenging conventional thinking?
Are you about innovative style & artistic expression?

If any of the above resonates,
then you might be in the right place.


Welcome to Iron Age Guitar Accessories



 

The Offerings:

 

Kill-switches Engaged

Sometimes the smallest things,
can have the BIGGEST impact.

Interrupter switches have been in our line-up since day one.
Where there was flimsy plastic buttons,
the idea of a sleek design & relentless functionality took hold.
Out with the old, in with the new.

Guitar Killswitch, Momentary, Kill-Switch

Our "kill" switches work by cutting the signal to your guitar,
and creating a staccato effect when pressed rhythmically.



Setting The Tone - Rock & Roll

Looking to customize your guitar?
Roll your volume up in style with the various guitar knobs offered.

Each is made with real abalone & MOP shells,
as well as various semi-precious stones.

The heavy metal bases provide a solid weight,
it's quality you can feel.
...and also available in 3 finishes to best suit your existing hardware



Last & Certainly Our Most Acclaimed

For tone seekers & admirers of artistic expression,
you can find some of the finest of plectrums in existence.

Handcrafted, Guitar Picks, Boutique, Plectrums, Palhetas

Our picks are painstakingly crafted by hand to deliver an outstanding experience.

The goal is to flood the senses with natural (and synthetic!) textures,
remarkable sounds, & the exquisite sights of innovative materials.

It's all part of of the experience,
from the 1st strum of the strings, to the final roaring chord.

These are picks that deliver in terms of aesthetic, function,
and age well according to your style of playing.

The tone is in your fingers,
our picks just help to translate that.




Man Behind The Brand

My name is Alexis Rodea,
and I am the owner, designer, & artisan here at Iron Age.

 


Since opening shop in 2015 & taking charge in 2017,
my passion has developed into crafting fine picks that tell a story.

Ones that ignite the imagination & creativity within the bearer.

As time marches on, I am on a continual journey to increase my skills,
even if it means discounting or discarding the "un-beneficial" in service of my passion.


I am 28 years old & currently based in Austin Texas (Yeehaw!).
I served in the USMC working on multi-million dollar aircraft,
war machines,
as an AV8B electronics technician (Avionics).

It's a field where a careless mistake can cost much more than currency if you know what I mean.



Things aren't so "all or nothing" this day, however...
Attention-to-detail goes a long way,
and this is something ingrained in everything I do.
There is always a striving to improve & every step forward is a victory won.


...And by the way,
when you purchase from Iron Age,
it's a 1 on 1 transaction. It's personal.

This is a 1-man shop (maybe I had not mentioned) & if you have any questions, comments, or concerns,
I can always be reached through the contact form below or through social media.

With that being said,
it can get pretty busy at times & quality is paramount,
so please bear with me...
