The Fire-Eyed Maid of Smoky War
A Wider Pick With A Smoother Tone
Bellona, the ancient roman goddess of war,
was believed to inspire frenzy & enthusiasm,
(Much like that of the Norse berserkers).
She is often depicted wielding a sword, spear, or shield,
and a torch as she rides into battle in a 4-horse chariot.
Grip & Tone At Its Centerpiece
To keep you on track, note after note,
this pick features a larger surface area.
And with this special material already being used to craft
pistol grips & knife handles, that really says something.
As you can see,
this pick features a rounded theme,
and that's the kind of tone you can expect.
This works especially well for Blues & Jazz,
where you can throw in the occasional quick-lick frenzy.
Even the point is smoothly tapered, polished,
and set-up for a pristine attack across the strings.
It's quite hard to beat the elegance of the Bellona pick.
Which features an unreal depth of dark shimmers & pearlescent waves.
-Hold it one way & it turns a pitch black.
-Turn it the other way, & it gleams into a blue metallic.
-Flip the lights off, & its center ring glows in allure.
Truly a unique guitar pick for any collection,
each stamped with our "sword & laurels" emblem of victory.
Sizing & Playability
As with all Imperial Series picks,
this one also measures in at a 4mm thickness.
Have no fear.
As we mentioned, each pick is meticulously crafted.
Each point is carefully tapered to ensure smooth playability.
You might even consider such a pick easier to grasp!
Dimensions for the Bellona plectrum are: 30.5*30.5mm
Making it slightly shorter than a regular pick,
but compensating the difference with a wider profile.
The Imperial Series "Bellona" Pick
An excellent choice if you seek a wide pick with more control.
You can expect a one-of-a-kind look & feel,
as well as a new bolder tone.
“Quality is never an accident.
It is always the result of high intention,
sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.
It represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”
~William A. Foster (MOH Recipient, 1945)
