Who doesn't like free gear? I think it is safe to say that we all like free gear and we come across giveaways every now and again. The most common things I've received for free over the years are are pretty basic; stickers, t-shirts, pens, key chains, lanyards, and beverage containers. Occasionally, I will come across something of this nature that I like and hold on to for a little while. Most of the time, these things end up in the recycle bin.
Most companies in the music industry are known to do this as well. Some will even have picks mass produced with their logos and contact info just to hand out. Unfortunately, they are usually not high quality and, let's face it, you'll probably dispose of it or it will end up in that pile-o-picks that every guitarist has. So... how can you get good picks for free?
One word. #GuitarPickWednesday
I know what you are thinking and yes, technically that is more than one word. If you follow us on Facebook and Twitter, you've heard about our #GuitarPickWednesday giveaway. Every week we giveaway an Original, Pure, or Hardened pick to one lucky fan. For free. That's right, free. Just enter the contest and you're set! You don't even need a Facebook, Twitter, Google+, or Instagram account to enter. We set up options for everyone to be able to enter. There are even daily entry options to help increase your chances. The entry process takes no more than a minute.
I get dozens of requests from guitarists asking if they can try a pick out before they buy. Trust me, if I had some sort of pick check out/rental system, I'd let every one "try" them out. I would love to be able to give at least one Dragon's Heart Guitar Pick to everyone who wanted one but the simple fact is that these are expensive to produce. #GuitarPickWednesday is definitely your best bet on grabbing a Dragon's Heart for free.
We LOVE our endorsers and their subscribers!
But still, one pick a week isn't enough is it? I agree. We have incredible fans and I'm always looking for ways to give back. The amount of feedback, reviews, pictures, and videos we've received over the past 6+ months is insane! So insane that we've decided to sponsor a select few reviewers. All of them love the picks and want to share them with their subscribers. We've supplied them with their personal allowance of picks and more for them to giveaway! If you're signed up for our newsletter, you already know who they are. Don't worry though! We officially announce them on Facebook periodically so make sure you've 'liked' us.
The bottom line... Free stuff? Good! Free Dragon's Heart Guitar Picks? VERY good!!! Make sure you're following us on all our social media platforms or you're subscribed to our newsletter for updates.
The more we grow, the more we can giveaway. Sharing is always good and if I have anything to say about it, share we shall. Since I am the inventor, owner, and resident expert on all things guitar pick; what I say goes. Period.
Until next time... Play with fire, in your heart!
